Facts about Hix

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
HIX is a handsome young orange and white dude, about 4 ½ years old, who is gradually learning to trust humans. He and his siblings arrived at the shelter in 2013 as seven-month-old kittens. They had apparently spent their formative months outside with little human contact. His sisters were more trusting and were adopted. Hix and his brother Hamilton (see below) were much warier of people and did NOT want to be handled.

The boys have been living in one of our open community rooms for awhile now. Hix is still wary but progress has been made. He now allows himself to be patted without flinching or running away. Sometimes it takes a really long time for these former outdoor cats to overcome the effects of their early upbringing.

Perhaps he is starting to think more highly of humans, now. Maybe he has been watching how the friendly cats get all the attention. Maybe he wants some attention too. He is still not fond of being handled, but he will tolerate short periods of patting. Hix may be ready for a home with patient adults who can complete the socialization process.

His brother HAMILTON is a solid gray guy with thick fur. He is even warier than Hix. He hangs out usually on the highest shelves of the room, watching….. And camera-shy too, apparently.

These fellows can be adopted separately or together. Come and ask to see them in “A” room.

About Milford Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

The Milford Humane Society is an all-volunteer, non-profit, no-kill shelter for stray and abandoned cats. First organized in September 1990 to fill a need in the community, we help to care and find homes for the ever-increasing number of homeless cats that exist in the local area. These cats survive by scrounging in dumpsters for food and finding shelter wherever possible.

Most of our cats are housed at the shelter. Others are cared for in foster homes until space becomes available at the shelter. Admission to the shelter is not based solely on adoptability but on need. The motto of the Milford Humane Society is to share the gift of unconditional love with as many cats and kittens as possible.

Our Adoption Process...

All cats and kittens are spayed or neutered, have tested negative for FelV and FIV (unless otherwise noted), have distemper and rabies shots, and are microchipped prior to being adopted.

Certain requirements must be met to adopt a cat, such as the cats must be kept indoors, and never de-clawed. Potential adopters must provide their landlord's written permission to have cats on their property. There is an adoption fee.
