found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, declawed, good with kids, and good with dogs.
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.
