Hercules has little in common with his Greek namesake. He's not about showing off his muscles or flaunting his good looks. Although he certainly could...just look at those gorgeous orange tabby stripes and that handsome face of his! No, our Hercules would rather just chill out and enjoy a nice head scratch.
This calm boy has a happy demeanor and an even temperament! He may be slightly reserved initially, but he warms up quickly to your kindness and then becomes relaxed and ready for your love; in fact, once you become his beloved, he likes to keep you in his sight (think of the emoji of the cat with hearts for eyes - that's Hercules, looking at you!). He's fine with being picked up and does well with kiddos. He is such a loving boy!
Hercules has diabetes and receives a small insulin injection after breakfast and dinner; he's on a wet food diet, with no between meal snacking (no kibble left out). He's super easy to care for, we can show you how! He is a healthy FIV+ (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) cat. FIV+ cats typically live long, healthy lives!

Hercules was concerned about the resident dog in his foster home when they first met, but he soon realized that the senior toy poodle meant him no harm! And now they easily live together. He doesn't scratch inappropriately, and has become more playful since relaxing into his foster home - he likes to bat toys around!
Hercules is an all-around good guy who is patiently waiting for a home with people who will give him attention, and who will appreciate the googly eyes they will get in return. He's such a great cat! Contact us today to meet him.
