Meet Herman

Herman is a very special guy. He was brought to the shelter as a feral cat and has resisted most of our attempts to socialize him and make him more interactive. He has remained a shy and cautious animal. He likes to hang out in his kitty hut unless food is involved. He will come out for meals but not much else. He loves to be sung to, and will perk up to listen. We have caught him singing to everyone in the shelter a few times, or playing with a toy when no one is looking. He doesn't go out of his way to interact with the other shelter cats but he is not aggressive towards them and is curious of them. It's possible that the right owner could bring him out of his shell and help him to discover the joys of companionship and affection but he may just be one of those cats that never really trusts humans entirely. He desperately needs a quiet home with a very patient, caring and understanding individual who doesn't mind if he chooses to remain a solitary and independent cat. Who knows though? Given the right environment and enough time, he could surprise us all and turn into a lap cat. Could you be the right home for Herman?

Update (November 2019): Herman has been in foster care for a few months now and is starting to come out of his shell! He sits beside his foster dad, so long as they don't make eye contact and has even been napping in bed beside him. Such amazing progress for Herman!

Herman was born on December 30th 2011.
