Felix the American Domestic Shorthair, the Cat of the Day
Name: Felix

Gender: Male
Kind: American Domestic Shorthair
Home: San Antonio, Texas, USA
   After one of our cats, Fluffy, and my son's cat, Oliver, who we were keeping temporarily, passed away two and a half days apart, my wife and I were heartbroken. We had one cat in the house, Lola Baby, who had been big buddies with my son's cat, Oliver. She was sad, depressed, and lonely, as we were. So we headed to the San Antonio Humane Society to adopt a kitten. We had planned to adopt a kitten back in January of this year, but when we came across Baby, we had to take her home.

     So here we went again. My wife and I went into the Cat Pavillon and walked over to where the kittens were kept. As we walked past several kittens, this one stopped playing, looked out at us, and tapped his paw on the glass. I looked at my wife and said, "Let's get him out." It turned out he was a little boy and had only been at the shelter for 2 days. He immediately started purring loudly when I picked him up, and he was very playful. One of the workers gave me his ball, and we had brought along several toys and treats. He just played and played and tried to climb up on us. He hadn't even been neutered yet. This was Wednesday. Thursday the vets were not doing surgeries, so we had to wait until Friday evening to bring him home. I told him several times that we would be back to get him in two days, and he seemed to understand.

     Two days later we went back to get him, and he remembered us. He jumped right up on me. We took him home. He immediately began to play with Lola Baby, who at first was annoyed, but now they enjoy playing together every day. We have had Felix for a month now. He settled in very quickly. He sleeps with me every night, is very affectionate, and loves his treats and thin sliced Deli turkey, plus regular wet and dry cat food. He grooms me and will sleep on my shoulder and face at night. Felix loves to rough-house and attack my hand under the pillows, and he has a favorite Little Gray Mousie that we play with that he must attack. I throw it, and Felix brings it back to me, carrying it by the back of the neck. He caught and killed a large roach one night and brought it to me, laying it at my feet. He sat down and looked at me, so proud of his catch.

     My wife and I love Felix very much. He has brought so much joy and laughter and happiness back into our home. I have told him repeatedly that this is his FurEver home. We hope all of you love him to! He is a very smart and handsome boy !!
