Hector's Story...
Hector is one sweet boy! He's so affectionate, and craves attention. He came to us VERY thin and VERY matted. He has a beautiful long coat of hair, and a gorgeous fluffy tail. We immediately shaved out some of his worst mats, but he was so thin that shaving him completely was out of the question. So we fed him slowly and constantly, and waited more than a month for him to fill out and get some "meat on his bones". Then we got him shaved down. He was a little naked, but at least those mats weren't pulling at his skin. He loves to be brushed, and I don't expect his long coat to be difficult to maintain. His hair is coming in really nicely. He is really gorgeous. He had clearly been living outside before he came to us. He had burrs and weeds all tangled and stuck, which caused the mats.

Other than being shaved-and-growing-back-out, Hector looks beautiful, and he is such a love. He has a very fluffy face, and beautiful gold eyes. He seems very unsure of my kitties (mostly because they keep hissing at him), so he stays upstairs in our guest room, peeking around the corner to come out when we are home. He is perfect in the litterbox. He has this really funny meow. It's almost like he's hoarse, or just not used to talking. As soon as I go upstairs, he comes over and jumps into my lap. He will just lay there as long as I will pet him. He also has this funny way of touching my face with a paw, to get me to pay attention. I will often take a book with me when I'm upstairs with Hector. When I start to look at the book, he will put his paw on my chin (he's laying on my chest, of course). Then I look at him, and it's almost like he's saying "pay attention to ME". It's precious. When he's in the livingroom with us, he's very happy to sit on someone's (anyone's!) lap.

Hector loves to roll around on the bed, especially on clean clothes, warm out of the dryer. He plays a little, kind of bats at toys that we roll near him.

One bad thing about him, though, is that he drools. Lots of kitties drool when they are being petted. It's a sign they are happy. But Hector...well, he takes it to a new level! LOL, he's just VERY happy. I think he will stop doing that so much when he settles in to his normal life. Already it's not as much as it was when he first came. Right now, he's just so happy to be loved and have food all the time that he's overwhelmed, I think. He's such a great cat, and he deserves to have a family to love him.

Hector is fully vetted, and came to us already neutered and front paw declawed. He tested negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV. He's been wormed twice, and has been vaccinated with his annual kitty vaccination plus rabies. He's been treated with Frontline twice, as well. He's all ready to go, and he has gained back quite a bit of weight. He could stand to [slowly] gain another couple of pounds. He's a big boy, but he was so very thin. He doesn't gorge on food, but a kitty that has been starved might tend to eat a little more than they should. Right now, I wouldn't limit him. In a year, maybe. He's going to need someone that gives him lots of love, to make up for what he's missed.

To adopt Hector, you will need to complete our online adoption application (here http://www.companionpetrescue.com/adoptionapplication,feline). Because it is so close to the Halloween season, you will need to have a vet reference. We will not adopt Hector to a first time cat owner. I'm sorry, but we have to do everything we can to protect him. If you have any questions, you can email Suzy@CompanionPetRescue.com.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hector, a North Kansas City Domestic Longhair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Longhair for sale in North Kansas City, or seeking a Domestic Longhair cat from a breeder in North Kansas City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in North Kansas City already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a North Kansas City breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Longhair breeders who help with Domestic Longhair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in North Kansas City paves the way for another one to be saved.
