Adopted by Allison and Ryan
Poor Hershey Through no fault of his own he lost his home, he belonged to an 11 yr old boy who he cuddled with every night. Havana Browns are a rare breed. They are known to bond deeply with one human. This is an odd story. The daughter of the house needed a very delicate back surgery. When she was released back home to recover the family was told their two kitties had to be kept away from her. I think she was set up in the living room. The cats were set up in separate areas and part of the time in a cage. When after many weeks they were to be allowed back in the main part of the house the other cat started attacking Hershey. The family didn’t know why
Hershey never instigated trouble, they were clear about that.But this other cat stalked him and really seriously attacked him. Hershey became a nervous wreck and he showed his upset by not peeing in the box. The family separated them and tried to figure out what to do. The other cat was a medically troubled girl and they felt she was not adoptable. At their wit’s end the family planned to take adoptable Hershey to a shelter. It all seemed manifestly wrong but when Purebreds got involved it was late in the process and all we could do to help was keep him out of the shelter.
Hershey arrived very upset and angry which we quite understood. Fortunately he ate well and to our pleasure was perfect with his box. We waited. It took 2 or 3 months before he would notice us and not hiss but now he has gotten over this sudden loss of his home and is showing us what an affectionate kitty he is. He loves attention. Kitties, god love them, are so forgiving. Time heals them.
Hershey needs a home where he can be the only pet and a home without children for now. He needs a home where his adopter(s )will be home a lot and have plenty of time to pet and play with him.Hershey has had a horrible year thru no fault of his own and now that he has come out of his shell he is needy for attention. I think probably he doesn’t want to share his adopter with anyone else right now. He needs a very cat experienced adopter, very sensitive to his needs and good at reading his body language.
Havana Browns are very rare kitties. The web says there are less than a thousand in the world. They are super loyal, playful, intelligent kitties. They want to be very closely connected to their humans. Some family will be so lucky to have the companionship of this wonderful and rare young boy.
Hershey is neutered, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, microchipped, eats wet and dry food, and is litterbox perfect.
He is fostered by Harriet in Santa Cruz.
Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to matching exceptional cats with qualified adopters who will cherish their pet and create an ideal forever home.

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!
