Looking for a home for a sweet, scrappy, stray tomcat!!
Hey POP readers,
I live up in Petworth and in the last few months have been having to deal with a huge stray cat population in my back yard. On New Years Eve, we trapped a big orange tomcat, but the Humane Society couldn’t take him due to the holidays. Not wanting to leave him outside, and because he wasn’t in the best of shape, we set up a kennel for him in our basement until we could take him in to get neutered. We’ve been caring for him until he gets healthy again. Just the other day, we were able to get him neutered and patched up for a few infections and he’s back on the mend.
It turns out, he’s a scrappy tomcat who is far more friendly that I originally thought (we assumed him to be feral.) He purrs the moment you enter the room and loves to crawl into your lap for belly rubs. He’s a little scuffed up, but has some of the most adorable habits. He snores in his sleep and loves cuddles.
He’d make an excellent companion for someone who doesn’t have any pets. I don’t know if he’s FeLV+ or has FIV, but it’s something I have no problem in getting checked out if anyone is interested.
We don’t have the room for another cat in our house, so we’re shopping him around! If you know anyone that is interested in acquiring the most loving cat who is a tad bit rough around the edges, let me know. I’d rather him find a warm home than have to put him back outside when the weather thaws.
My fiance has affectionately named him Heathcliff, which is fitting! Find Heathcliff a home guys! He deserves it. If interested, please email me at [email protected]
