Meet Henry! Poor Henry was someone’s cat once, and was either lost or dumped on a feral colony. Colonies can be pretty territorial, and they beat Henry up pretty good. His face was pretty torn up when we first met him.
We (Derry Township Community Cats) took him in a month or so ago, and nursed him back to health, got him neutered and his vaccines. Despite all he has been through, Henry loves nothing more than to rub up against your legs and get pet. He’s a very happy couch potato!
Somewhere along the way Henry contracted FIV, perhaps from being roughed up by the colony he landed in…we don’t know for sure. But he is only eight, and we are trying to find him a home. FIV cats can have lots of healthy years ahead still, and Henry’s a muscular and strong cat, who has gained weight steadily this month. He’s almost at 14 pounds, so we may even have to put him on a diet soon.
Henry is enjoying his stay at our cat house, and seems to like the company of other cats despite what he has been through. But he’d enjoy his own home even more…hint, hint! Holler if you think your couch might need this couch potato to keep it warm!
