found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with cats.
He's named Horus because the first time I saw him his profile reminded me of the Egyptian Bird god Horus.
This cat is AMAZING: my 7-year-old niece can hold him like a baby (see photo) and he purrs. I gave him 2 good baths when he first came—he needed 2 to get clean after the winter and needed burrs cut out of his fur. Finally his white nose came clean. His hair is short but thick. I can trim his nails, no problem. He seems like an older cat, but when I started playing with him with fishing rod-like toys and rolling balls and catnip mice, he turned into a kitten. He has an exceptional temperament and really looks for interaction. He's a completely wonderful, "normal," no-problem cat, using the litter box always and now showing no signs of having lived outside. His cheeks/jowls are chubby but this will recede a bit as the testosterone goes out of his system after being neutered.
Horus likes to sleep curled up in my arms or behind my knees. He definitely likes being held and will take as much affection as you can give him. He recently started licking my arms and hands. He has a gentle bite of affection but has never bruised or broken skin. He meets me at the door when I get home, and when I take off my shoes, I feel the floor where he was waiting/sleeping is warm, right by the door.
He is a heavy cat, but not at all fat—very solid. The vet said some of his teeth had been damaged and might fall out, and I soften his dry food with warm water which he likes better than just the dry food.
