Meow! My name is Hutch (FIV+)
Hutch (FIV+)'s Info...
|Breed:||Maine Coon||Color:||Black & White Or Tuxedo||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Never has a more magnificent, more handsome, more affectionate kitty-man come into the Saving Graces 4 Felines fold than our darling Hutch. Not only is Hutch all those things, but he is also one of the biggest boys we’ve rescued, too! Weighing in at between 17 and 20 pounds, Hutch is one loving armful of kitty cat! He has huge feet, with tufts of fur standing out between his toes and pads, yet he is quite gentle with his claws. His black and white tuxedo fur is silky-soft to the touch, and Hutch takes great pride in keeping that amazing fur clean, shiny, and completely free of any matting. His deep amber eyes are soulful, as he watches every move you make, and signals to you that he is intensely interested. Hutch loves to be held, and was obviously designed to be a lap cat and bed warmer. He loves everybody human, and specific kitties, and he deserves to be deeply loved in return. The one holdup to finding Hutch a forever home is that he tested positive for FIV—an immune deficiency virus that only cats can get. Dogs can’t get it. People can’t get it. And other cats can only get it if they mate with an FIV positive kitty, have a vicious fight with an FIV positive kitty, or are born to an FIV positive kitty. Hutch is neutered and he’s a male, so he can’t mate or give birth. Hutch doesn't like some other kitties, but he is IN LOVE with his best friend PoPurry. (We feel he will be happiest if adopted along with her, and there are no other cats in the home but her.) Hutch could live a long, normal, happy life, and never even get sick at all, if he's not exposed to other sick cats. But people misunderstand FIV to the point that they hesitate to give a precious cat like Hutch a chance. We hope you will take the time to read up on FIV and become the one incredible person who will give Hutch a chance. Take a look at this remarkable face, look into these fathomless eyes, and consider how your life could be changed forever just by opening your heart and home to one very special kitty-man, Hutch the Magnificent! Hutch was born around 2010 or 2011, and his adoption fee is $75.00 in cash. A good vet reference is a requirement.
Rescue Group Info...
We began as a TNR group in late 2001, but became a non-profit rescue group on January 14, 2002, with a 501 (c)(3) status. We rescue abandoned, stray, homeless cats throughout Pitt County, as well as many from Animal Control. We also do TNR for many cat colonies in and around Greenville, and provide for their daily feeding. We were instrumental in starting Pitt County's first low-cost spay/neuter clinic--Spay Today. We are an all volunteer organization, and all we do is simply for the love of cats.
