About Herbie

Adopted by Katie

Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is helping facilitate the adoption of this cat through our Owner Placement Program.  We take no responsibility for the health and medical records of this cat.  It is the responsibility of the owner and adopter to discuss this.

Herbie is NOT in a Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue foster home, but residing with his current owner in Stockton. Adoption fee applies. Find out more about Owner Placement Cats.


Herbie was adopted with his best friend Map two years ago. Their owner needs to re-locate and is unable to take these two beautiful guys along. It would be wonderful, and preferred, if they could be adopted together. Their owner says they would probably be okay if separated.

This is what their owner would like you to know about Herbie:

“Herbie and Map get along very well together and have been best friends since they were adopted. They are both very cute and well-behaved. They love to sleep together on mattresses or couches and sometimes under your bed. Herbie likes to sleep a lot and prefers warm temperatures. He will try to get into the bed and sleep right next to you. He also loves to be cuddled and enjoys a daily hairbrush.

I have only brought him to the vet when needed for health issues or full bath service, as he looks so stressed and exhausted after a vet visit. Herbie is very afraid of water, so you have to be careful when bathing. He prefers a pet salon rather than using a vet for grooming needs.

They both eat the same diet which is a mix of Royal Canin Indoor Adult and Hill’s Science Diet Adult Urinary and Hairball control. Herbie doesn’t have the same issue with hairballs that Map does, but he seems to enjoy this diet and can be a little picky about changes. I usually give them a wet food treat 2-3 times a week if I feel like they want something to change in their diet, but it’s literally up to you. They love Royal Canin wet food. Herbie, just like Map, behaves well using the litterbox.

They have not been not microchipped since I keep them as indoor-only cats. Herbie might enjoy a catio. Map was declawed by his previous owner, he should never be outside, so Herbie has always been indoor-only too.

Herbie will be shy and scared at first but super adorable when he gets used to you. They are really very good kitties. If you don’t like something they learn quickly and recognize what you like or dislike.”

Herbie and Map are adorable kitties! We don’t know how they would do with dogs or children. We think a quiet loving home like they are used, to will be best for them. We have included a picture of Map also, please check out his posting on our website. We expect they will be adopted quickly. If you are interested in adopting them together, and mention that in the comment section, only one application need be submitted. Adoption Fee of $175 applies for Herbie or $300 for both Herbie and Map.

Herbie is neutered, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, eats wet and dry food, and is litterbox perfect.

He currently lives with his owner in Stockton.

Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to matching exceptional cats with qualified adopters who will cherish their pet and create an ideal forever home.

If you believe you are the perfect adopter for Herbie please tell us why in the comments section of our Adoption Application, and contact Pam at cheemers@gmail.com or 541-290-8408. If you are unable to reach Pam please email us at info@purebredsplus.org.

NOTE: We prefer families with children bring them to the adoption appointment. Why? This allows interaction between the children and the cat. This helps ensure they will be a good fit for each other. A mismatch between a child and a cat is not in anyone’s best interests!
