Facts about Hitch

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 16dc002
  • Hair: Short
Sweet, funny Hitch had a rough start but life is looking up and he is ready for his forever home. Before he came into the FOR family in March, his front right leg was severely injured and had to be amputated. He entered foster care having lost his home and his leg. That was a lot! He is learning to trust again and likes his people a lot but still feels insecure about being with other animal so a home where he is the one and only is best.

Hitch is a love bug and cannot get enough chin scratches and ear rubs and fully body scrubbings as well as belly rubs. He talks (just the right amount), purrs like a well-oiled machine and when he is really happy he will drool –just a little bit. He likes to be close to his person.

He gets around well, uses a scratching post and can jump up to join his person and get those rubs he likes so much. He can play a little roughly at times so young children would not be a good fit.

And he is gorgeous! Solid black, big and shiny, Let him capture your heart.

If you want a big, beautiful cat with a great personality, Hitch is your guy.

About Friends of Rescue - Huntsville, AL

About Our Rescue Group...

Friends of Rescue is a certified 501(c)(3) organization formed in 2009, consisting of volunteers who are devoted to saving shelter animals that are in danger of euthanasia. Southern shelters have a constant overflow of dogs and cats, little funding, and limited space. Once the animals arrive at the shelter, they have very little time. It is our goal to help save these adoptable animals and find loving individuals/families who will provide committed, FORever homes. We are NOT professional trainers or animal behaviorists; simply volunteers who are trying to save these animals from euthanasia. Each animal in our program is in a foster home and receives all age-appropriate vetting while in our care.
