Fostered in Santa Cruz
I love these big red boys. I am always on the lookout for them. They are perfect family cats and adopt out right away. This boy absolutely knows his job in a family. He will be great with other cats, children, chaos, lizards and probably dogs. He is a confident boy.
In one of the pictures below you can see little spitfire Maia, the Bengal girl who doesn't like cats, yelling at him and reaching out for his tail. It was so funny to watch because Henry didn't so much as even look at her. She didn't bother him a bit. He kept his tail millimeters out of her reach and he went on about posing for the camera. He is a very cool cat. A great cat.
Henry is really long and lean.The photo of him sitting makes him look rounded but he really isn't. The shelter photo at the bottom holding his stretched out in the air shows his long body. I thought he might need to be bathed but his fur is so clean and soft and silky I decided why fuss with perfection. His feet, bib and tummy are snowy white; the rest of his coat is a fairly saturated red.
Maine Coons are smart cats. Some folks call them the dogs of the cat world. They are real characters and have odd quirks and funny behaviors. i think they have a sense of humor and are often comedians. This boy is super mild and confident ( "If you have it, you don't have to flaunt it," he says. ). His good nature will delight children who want to play with him. He won't be a doormat but he is okay with some noise and commotion. How great for a child to have the memory of growing up with him..I do, however, expect he would slip outside if he could, so any family, one with kids especially, will have to be vigilant to keep doors closed. I don't know that he has ever been outside; I just would not be surprised.
He was surrendered by his owner at a shelter with no reason given. He was in good shape except he had a bad case of fleas. (more indication that he had been out??) His skin has a mild allergy to flea bites called flea allergy dermatitis. He would be pleased to be kept free of fleas.
Henry eats wet and dry food and is llitterbox perfect.
His foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz.
