What a sweet boy Handsome is, and what a sad story he has to tell. Wouldn’t it be just so wonderful to find him a permanent, loving home right before the holidays?
What little is known about him is that he lived with a homeless couple who abandoned him when they found an apartment. Of course it is good that they found a place for themselves, and perhaps the only apartment they could afford is one where pets weren’t allowed. Let’s just go with that…anything else is just so sad and unthinkable.
The homeless couple got him neutered as part of a feral cat spay/neuter program so his ear is chipped. Ear tipping is done to feral cats to indicate that they were spayed/neutered, however, there is absolutely nothing feral about this sweet, docile kitty boy. He is just a very friendly house kitty.
He started hanging around a nearby feral cat colony and when his foster mom realized he was tame so she took him into foster care.
He is good with dogs and other cats. Initially he is a little shy but once he gets to know you, he’ll be your best buddy and likes to sit in your lap. A cuddly 14 lbs. lap kitty…what’s not to love about that. Sitting in your comfy living room, reading a good novel or watching some fun shows on TV and next to you a big fluffy kitty boy who is looking for affection…don’t think life can get any better than that.
Handsome had a vet exam in July 2016 and was declared in excellent health. He is litterbox perfect and loves to eat both wet and dry food. His permanent new home will need to be committed to keeping him indoors only. He feels that the time he had to spend outside in the feral cat colony was all he could take, thank you very much.
