Henry is a very sweet and affectionate boy with plenty of love and quirks that will make you instantly fall in love with him. He enjoys attention and likes to be around people, always coming to the door meowing and rubbing his cheek to greet his foster mom, or even waiting outside the bathroom door. He is quite calm, content and lazy, spending most of his day napping beside his foster mom and relaxing in different spots, but also has some spurs of high-energy where he will chase catnip toys or play by himself. He loves playing with his foster mom with feather toys as well.
Henry enjoys the company of people and even though he may not always be right by your side, off doing his own thing, he likes knowing that you are around and will get lonely if left alone for too long. Henry likes to be pet and loved, but he will let you know when he has had enough. He will always come to you if he is looking for some love and cuddles and doesn’t mind being picked up, sometimes choosing to sit on laps. He purrs a lot, and very loudly too.
Henry is the perfect cat for those who want a good balance between cuddly, affectionate time with their pet and also independent time with no distractions. He would do best in a relaxed home where someone is often home to keep him company. He does not like to be overwhelmed with petting and cuddling so he does not do well with small children.
Henry is FIV positive but don’t let prejudices and misinformation keep you from considering him as your forever fur baby. FIV+ cats can live long happy lives with a good diet, low stress, indoor homes, loving families, and annual vet check-ins. He does not require medication. He can live in a home with other non-FIV+ cats, as the virus is only passed to other cats by blood (ie. deep bite marks). Please do not judge him based on a blood test!
Once you get to know Henry’s sweet little quirks and see his big, loving eyes you will not be able to resist him! Henry is an amazing cat that deserves a stable, loving home. Give this charming cat another chance!
