This month’s feature pet is Julio, a four year old Bengal kitty who is a member of the Orozco Family. Julio recently visited with Dr. Margo Reid and had his first dental procedure. While hanging out with the Campus Veterinary Clinic staff, Julio stole their hearts and the decision to make him the July Critter of the Month was unanimous. So without further ado, we present to you Julio’s Story, told in his own words:
This is my story!
Hi, my name is Julio and I am about 4 years old and I am “street smart” because my previous owners abandoned me, probably for health issues, and I was discovered by a “good Samaritan” who was walking his dog as I wandered the “mean streets.” I was placed in a foster home for Bengals in August of 2011. They called me “Lieutenant Julio” because I must know everything going on in the house.
I immediately reached out for my new mom when I saw her because I knew we would be a great team. I jumped into her arms to give her hugs and the deal was sealed. That was the day I adopted her. She also got me a step-brother named “Rusty” who mom says was too cute to pass up. He keeps me company and provides me with plenty of exercise.
I follow my new mom everywhere, meowing, even into the bathroom. I love the water and she finally picked me up and let me take a shower. After she discovered how much I like water, she shares showers with me all the time. Well that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
