I am Huckleberry aka Hucklebear, Huckleboo, Huckle or just plain Huck! I am around 9 years old. I am shy at first because I lived my life on the street for a few years and I like to have safe places to hide. I scare easily (especially when around men) and run to my safe place but once I warm up, I will let you cuddle and pet me all the time. I really love attention, snuggles and temptations treats! I will purr like crazy and snuggle with you all night if you let me. My foster mom says that I have a heart shape on my back because I am such a lover.
Because of my past, I would prefer a calm environment without a lot of noise. I get along perfectly with the resident Chihuahua but the other 2 cats I live with don’t jibe with me very well. Honestly, other kitties seem to pick on me for some reason, it might be okay to have a younger fur friend put into the mix after I can acclimate to my new home. Older, respectful and calm children would be just fine for me, I might be too shy and scared around noisy or younger kiddos. My "meow" is very sweet and I am a talker once I get to know you.
I just had my vaccinations updated and a full dental cleaning. I am missing a bunch of teeth now and prefer a mixture of soft and hard food. Did I mention I LOVE CAT TREATS and toys? I love playing with catnip toys, crinkle balls and feather strings.
I have had such a hard start and am now looking for my perfect fur-ever family. My foster mama is very protective of me because it took her a year to help me off the street. I just know she will find me the best possible home and can’t wait! If you think you could love me forever, please fill out an adoption form. Thank you for considering me!
