12-17 Harvey

Domestic Short Hair
Sex: Male, neutered
Age: 5 years, 6 months

Hello, I'm Harvey!

I'm a shy cat at first, but given time and patience I do come out of my shell and seek out affection. I like pets and belly rubs once I get to know you. I find the company of another cat extremely helpful when dealing with stressful situations, like moving to a new home. In order to help me adjust, I am looking for a home with another cat to keep me company.

When I came to the Oakville & Milton Humane Society, I was having some urinary issues. The staff here have helped me so much to heal, and have been feeding me a special diet to help keep me on track. I am eating Royal Canin Urinary S/O Canned and Dry so I have good bladder health. This food has helped me so much and I am feeling great! I should stay on this food unless my veterinarian recommends otherwise.

Please stop by the Oakville & Milton Humane Society to meet me. I cannot wait to find my new forever family!

The Oakville Milton Humane Society is located at 445 Cornwall Road.
