Haroun was adopted on Monday, July 4, 2022!
Meet Haroun! He is an energetic yet simultaneously calm guy, rescued from Devore Animal Shelter by our team in July of 2021. He was estimated to be approximately four years old at the time.
Haroun‘s name means “warrior lion.” We’re not sure what his life was before he found himself waiting for a lifeline at the shelter. We felt he may have spent some time on his own and outdoors, given his rough condition. Post-rescue, he did test positive for FIV. Feline Immunodeficiency Virus is not common. When we do see it, it’s often present in older, unneutered males who found themselves scrabbling for territory. Haroun, our warrior lion, probably engaged in a brawl or two. FIV+ kitties, however, can and do live long and happy lives with proper nutrition and annual vet visits.
Still, we know he must have spent his first year in the company of humans. Haroun loves to cuddle and snuggle up with you and sleep by your feet in the bed. He’s the perfect lap warmer! He loves to follow you around, and if he had a name change, Shadow would suit him. Haroun purrs up a storm as soon as you give him affection. He just wants to show you all the love in the world.
FIV males often mellow out considerably once neutered. They often become big, docile teddy bears. Haroun gets along very well with other cats and would enjoy co-habitation with other kitties. He’d thrive in a home that isn’t too loud, active, or disruptive to his regimented nap routine. Don’t be surprised if you find him sleeping in the oddest places or if he prefers the floor to his cat bed. One of his quirks is that he tends to sleep face-down, which is hilarious and adorable. His favorite toy is the colorful rope that he could chase all day long if allowed. After play, of course, is naptime again.
Haroun is an easy-going couch potato of a kitty who is big on cuddles. He wants nothing more than regular meals, napping space, a cat bud, and hanging with his humans. Sound like your kind of guy? Fill out an adoption application for him today at www.kittydevorerescue.org!
