Hello from me and Harry :)

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hello!

I promised I'd post some pics of my new kitty once he was better... I posted a thread here about two weeks ago when I first adopted him: he had just been neutered and was lethargic and not eating for three whole days. But he's feeling much better now and is adjusting well to his new home.

Meet Harry...


I adopted him from my local shelter. He's about 4 years old, nearly 14 pounds and is a big mama's boy! He was really shy at first, hiding under my bed for more than a week, but he really relaxed this weekend and now he owns the place! His favorite spot is on the back of my couch, looking out the big windows in my living room.


He also loves following mom around everywhere she goes, and loves to cuddle up with her while she watches tv or is sleeping at night.

I haven't been a very active member here, but the people here have helped me tremendously. When my first cat, Mooch, got sick with kidney disease, my friend Sicy told me about this place, and everyone was so helpful with information during Mooch's last few days. My other cat, Belle, got really sick last month and I had to put her to sleep, too. I lost both of my babies within a matter of 16 months. I was going to take a mini break from having an animal in the house, but I donated some of Belle's food and meds to the local shelter and made the 'mistake' of looking in the cat room while I was there... and my big guy was waiting there for me!!! The second time I went to visit him at the shelter, he meowed at me the moment I walked in the room... it was as if he was saying 'mom' instead of 'meow' and I knew I had to take him home. Anyway, I could gush forever about my new guy. He's a lover and one handsome dude and I love him to pieces!!!!!!

What a handsome man you have there! We adopted 6 year old Max from a shelter about a month ago and he sounds like your Harry... a big ball of love - just looking for a snuggle buddy or a good window to look out of! Such a change of pace from my kitten Baylee, who only snuggles with me in bed!

I'm glad Harry's doing better... fantastic news!

Harry is such a little love!

I'm very sorry to hear about your losses. It sounds like Bella and Mooch sent you to that shelter so you could find Harry, or so he could find you.

I'll move this to Fur-Pictures.

Sicy, I had to put Belle to sleep last month. She had developed quite a few problems in her old age... she was dealing with high blood pressure and a thyroid problem. She was on meds for both and once we got the thyroid until control, she started showing signs of kidney disease. She suddenly got quite sick and stopped eating, just like my Moochie. She was only 4.5 pounds the day I put her to sleep. I don't know what her life was like before I adopted her, but I do know she had four good years with me.

Thanks to everyone for your kind welcomes!!!

Congrats on adopting handsome Harry! He's adorable and it is wonderful that you gave an older shelter cat a chance! I'm so sorry to hear about you losing your two cats within such a short period of time. Hopefully Harry can help heal your heart (Whew! That's alliteration!). It already looks like you two have a very solid bond
