At the beginning of June, a former co-worker posted that she needed to find a new home for her cat because her dog was using it as a play toy. When I said I was possibly interested, he was already "taken". Then, she contacted me about a week later and said that Harley was still in need of a good home if I was still interested. Now, Darryl and I had decided on a few musts for a new cat - we wanted a male because they are much more laid back and tend to love hanging with kids a lot more, he needed to be neutered, and declawed. Well, Harley is a male, about 4 years old who loves kids and he is neutered and declawed. Not to mention that he is the dark grey/dark brown tiger stripe we both like. Add to that, he was free. Yes. free. Part of what was keeping us back from finding a kitten was the cost and God took care of that part too . I asked a lot of questions and set a date for Harley to come to our home.
Harley has quickly become a great part of our family. It took him about a week to a week an a half before he would come upstairs due to China. Finally, one day, I just hauled him upstairs and sat with him on the couch. Now that he saw what he was missing, he started to make his way upstairs a lot more. Harley is a people cat - he loves to be around people and rubs all over anyone that comes close to him. He is a beast weighing in at about 14 pounds (Compared to Misty who was barely 6 pounds - Harley is a beast!). One thing we are trying to change is the simple fact that Harley is nocturnal HA! He sleeps all day and
