Henry is a cuddlebug extraordinaire. He loves being petted so much he doesn't just purr, he snorts, meows, and chirps his joy at you. He's got a great resume - not only as a professional cuddler but as an excellent stalker of the wand toy, and connoisseur of the catnip. Recently he's even taken on the role of mentor to his new foster brother and is teaching him some excellent manners (like how it's important to warm your paws before you nudge the humans awake for attention)

Henry is feline leukemia positive and must go to a home without other cats or with other feline leukemia positive cats. Furry Friends Refuge provides ongoing veterinary care to our feline leukemia cats at no cost to the adopter. So if you're looking to truly save an animal, consider a feline leukemia cat! Want a pair? Henry adores his foster brother Neville - they make a great duo!

Henry has been around kids 4 and up, small dogs, and other FELV+ cats in his foster home and has done great with all of them. If you're interested in meeting him please call the shelter to set up an appointment to do so. (515)222-0009

Henry has been sponsored, so there is no fee to adopt him.
