Petting, brushing, and rumbly purring for your lap
Hi, my name is Hercules.
I was born August 2016. I have lived at Furry Friends since October 2019. I am a handsome, adorable, long-haired, buff tabby with special needs. I am very timid, so require a quiet home and a soft spoken guardian with a gentle touch and slow movements. I am FIV+, so must be the only kitty or share a home with another FIV+ or laid-back kitty. I like to be around other kitties if they are quiet.
I have stage 1 chronic kidney disease and must be on a prescribed kidney diet. I am wary of strangers and commotion, but once I warm up to you I like to be softly petted & brushed and I have a very loud purr. If you adopt me I will likely find places to hide in my new home, and you will need to patiently allow me some space and time before reaching out to me. I like to hang out in a soft bed at the window or perch in a cat tree, where I am safe and can watch activity below. An adopter for me must be an experienced cat person and needs a competent, accepting person to care for me.
