Meet Hector

Hey there, I'm Hector, the most intriguing feline you'll ever meet! ?

At approximately two years old, I'm in the prime of my life, and let me tell you, I'm as handsome as they come. Picture this: strawberry blonde fur that gleams in the sunlight and saucer-like eyes that can melt your heart with a single look. But there's so much more to me than meets the eye.

I'm a champion eater, and I'm not afraid to let you know it. My melodious whining is the soundtrack to our daily meals, a symphony of gastronomic delight. ?? But hey, a cat's gotta eat, right?

Life hasn't always been a cakewalk for me. I spent at least a year as a stray, battling the elements and searching for my place in the world. Two months ago, fate smiled upon me when I was brought inside after a nasty encounter with heatstroke. Since then, I've been on a quest to find my forever family, someone who'll cherish me as much as I'll cherish them.

I yearn for a connection, a bond that goes beyond words. I can be a little hesitant when it comes to affection, but here's the secret: sit still, and I'll come to you. Slow and steady, that's my motto. You see, I'm FIV+ but don't let that scare you. I'm incredibly healthy, and I've got a lot of love to give.

I'm a smart cookie too. Call my name, and I'll perk up those saucer eyes and give you my full attention. I may not be a lap cat, but I'm a connoisseur of the art of cuddles when the moment is right. Just be patient with me, and I'll soak up every ounce of your affection. Quick movements may make me a bit skittish, but hey, who isn't entitled to their quirks?

I believe that a retired or senior adopter would be a perfect match for me. We can take life at our own pace, enjoying the simple pleasures together. And did I mention how much I love to eat? It's one of my most endearing qualities, I promise.

So, are you ready to invite this strawberry blonde, saucer-eyed, champion eater and whiner into your life? Let's create our own purr-fect love story.

My adoption fee is $75. This fee includes my vaccinations, FIV/FELV negative, de-wormer, and spay/neuter . Fill out an application at if you would like to meet me!
