Medical note- Peyton came into care with Best Friends Felines in February 2023. At the time he entered care he had severe gingivostomatitis which means his immune system was having a reaction to his teeth. This
results in significant ulceration of the mouth and back of the throat.
The treatment for this is full mouth extractions. After healing Peytons mouth was settled down. He does occasionally have sneezing fits because of the inflammation in his throat. Given his unknown age he is estimated at 14 years old, and may potentially have something else underlying, however at this stage his blood work and examinations are normal. Therefore it is most likely he will have chronic sneezing. Peyton was also born deaf.


Peyton came into our care along with several other ragdolls from an urgent care situation up north. He was quite underweight and sickly looking as his mouth was so sore he wasn’t able to eat properly. His paws were brown from constantly pawing at his mouth and it looked like he hadn’t groomed himself in years. He had a condition called gingivostomatitis which was resolved by removing all of his infected teeth. He felt instant relief once they were removed so has been making up for lost time in the food department, now sitting at a healthy weight with a healthy coat now even grooming himself from time to time.
He has since become a very smoochy, human dependent cat.
Despite his age he likes to play with cat wands and laser toys, thinks boxes are fun and has the occasional zoomies. He also loves to follow you from room to room, especially when it’s getting close to dinner time. He is a food motivated cat so will want you to share your dinner with him.
He is a very outgoing boy who will greet all visitors at the door and is open to a pat on his terms. Given that he was born deaf, he reacts a little bit differently than other cats so his owners will need time to get to know his behaviours and what he does or doesn’t like. He does have a spunky ragdoll attitude and needs someone willing to look past his differences and be patient with him.
His purrs are heard throughout the whole house which go even louder when you’ve got food in your hand, it’s dinner time or he’s enjoying a really good pat. You will also hear grumbles from him while he’s eating if he is really enjoying the food.
Of a morning, if you aren’t up before him he will stand there staring at you, purring away until you awake from your slumber. Then he loves to join you at the basin while you get yourself ready for the day, providing background music (purring) and head bumps on any surface that is closest to him.
Everyday is a fun day with Peyton, he does some of the most random, cutest things that you don’t expect. Everyone that meets him falls in love with his quirky personality.
