Facts about Harry

  • Breed: Domestic Mediumhair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 7291
  • Hair: Short
We're just wild about Harry! And speaking of wild, Harry is wildly affectionate and wildly active! This medium-hair young adult just out of his teens is described by his recent fosterer as "the snuggliest and most energetic cat I've even met." He's outgoing and extremely social, greeting guests at the door and seeking any willing lap for a quick snuggle. He has to be where the action is and has a few mischievous tricks up his sleeve to get your attention (like stealing food)!

Often! Harry's high energy and exuberance at times result in overly-excited rough play with his human, so it's especially important that he have a young feline friend who is equally rambunctious and eager to enjoy a rough game of chase and wrestle. Harry has very mild Cerebellar Hyperplasia (CH), a disorder incurred in utero from a pregnant mom and which can cause uncoordinated motions or tremors. CH is not a disease, does not require any special care, is not contagious, and is non-progressive (meaning, it doesn't worsen with age), it's just something that affects the cat's mobility or coordination to varying degrees. In Harry's case, it's the mildest form, in that he has a slight head tremor and might take an uncoordinated step on occasion. But this is one very agile cat, whose "disorder" is not only barely perceptible but also doesn't limit this little tornado of a cat in the slightest!! He's a real charmer with a dash of bad boy! Harry is FIV and FeLV negative, neutered, and up-to-date on shots.

About KittyKind

About Our Rescue Group...

KittyKind is a New York City not-for-profit, no-kill, all-volunteer cat rescue and adoption group. All of us at KittyKind have opened our hearts and homes — and emptied our pockets — to save thousands of cats from neglect or abuse. Every cat we rescue is given food, shelter, medical care, a safe place to lay his or her head and most importantly of all, a reason to purr. We do not believe in rescuing a cat or kitten only to euthanize it if it has a broken leg or needs extended nursing care. We never give up if there is a chance of saving them. We take responsibility for each and every life we save and if a cat or kitten is unadoptable, they have a home with us for life.
We believe that animals are not property to be discarded, disposed of, or killed just for the crime of being homeless or unwanted. We believe that people should be friends, caretakers and protectors of animals. We believe that we must take responsibility for the life of every animal we rescue who through no fault of their own, is abandoned, sick, disabled, old or unable to care for themselves. We are dedicated to relieving their suffering, providing food, shelter, medical care and comfort until we can place them in a safe and loving home.

Our Adoption Process...

All cats and kittens are vaccinated and tested for FELV (feline leukemia) and FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), and if old enough, are neutered or spayed.
We will ask you some questions about your home and we will be glad to answer any questions you may have. Adopting a pet is a long-term commitment. We ask you to sign the KittyKind Adoption Agreement.
We will always take a cat back FOR ANY REASON. We will also work with you to place her in another good home if (after a period of adjustment) the adoption doesn't work out.
We do ask for a $125 adoption fee to help cover some of our food and veterinary expenses. For certain purebred cats (Siamese, Persian, Maine Coon, etc.), we request a $150 - $300 adoption fee.
