Ernest's rescuer writes: Ernest found us last February when he showed up hungry at our back door. As the months went by he became much friendlier. We don't want him to spend the winter outside as he is totally adoptable now and brought him inside. He is neutered, vaccinated, FeLV negative but FIV positive, approximately one year old.
Ernest is a very mellow fellow, loves to be petted and talks a lot! He is not sure about being picked up, but I think with a little help he could learn to love it. He adores being petted on his nose and will gives tons of head butts. He is also just learning how to play and enjoys chasing a shoe string very much. But most of all Ernest loves to hang out and watch the show outside the window and check out the room from his vantage point. Ernest should be the only pet in the house, as he doesn't know dogs and doesn't need cats :) Please contact Suprina11@verizon.net if you would like to meet Ernest in his Harlem foster home.
