Henry (the cat living in my shed)

Here is the cat I found out in the pine barrens lol










he really needs a bath. He's living in my storage shed right now.. my dad moved out a few months ago so it's empty other than an old tv he didn't take. i feel bad having to keep him out there but the inn is full and I couldn't just leave him out there to starve in the middle of nowhere. He is sooo friendly. He was already neutered when I found him too. I guess someone dumped him in the woods thinking he would survive on his own but he is really skinny you can feel all his ribs and his backbone

kathryn, he's gorgeous!! Wish we had a situation that allowed cats, cuz I'm in love! Looks like he's got a few battle scars, too, none of which mar his considerable good looks, just add to his air of mystery!

Hope you can find a place for this handsome dude soon!!

Gorgeous boy Kathryn ~ for taking such good care of him. I've driven thru / got lost in the Pine Barrens... Not an easy or nice place for most people let alone a "family" cat.

it's actually some sort of wound, I don't think he was in a fight because there really aren't that many cats in the area where I was trapping when I found him, and he wandered out from not even near where the ferals are being cared for, he came straight out of the woods of the pines. i think he must have gotten caught up in some brush, he has some small scratches across his face and a couple scabs on his upper body more consistent with getting stuck in some brush vs. being in a fight with an animal.

and he doesn't have cable (tv is old and busted), but does have AM talk radio as well as a space heater, fluffy comforter and I gave him a ton of my cats older toys and I'll just buy them new stuff when I run up to work tomorrow for kitty litter

Thanks guys. Can everyone please send some good thoughts Henry's way?? I am trying DESPERATELY to get my aunt to adopt him Her cat Mittens was put to sleep a few weeks ago at about 14 years old after declining health. She has 4 other cats (3 of which I gave her ) but she has a really really nice big house so it's not even like it's a problem to take on another one I really hope she adopts him.

I tried to talk her into it on FB last night and she didn't answer back no so it might be that she is thinking about it I'm going to attempt to give henry a bath later and maybe get some more spruced up pics of him and I'll post them and tag her on FB so she'll HAVE to look at his handsome mushy face

yeah he's a really cool cat. I am pretty pro at giving cats baths though I give my own cats baths all the time because i'm really weird (which you guys already know......)... i hate when they start to smell like cats lol so I wash em every once in a while to freshen 'em up. they don't really care... well obviously i don't mess with the feral ones that are in my house but my 'normal' cats are used to me overly grooming them lol nail clips a few times a week, constantly cleaning their ears and whatnot
