Ivan was rescued from the city dump when he was just a timy baby. The kind person who found him took him home and raised him. She was not able to keep him because she could not afford the veterinary costs. She called us at ANB and we were able to take him.
Ivan is a very gentle and loving gray boy. He is tested negative for FELV/FIV, neutered, shots, micro-chipped, and now is ready for his new family. Please call if you would like to see Ivan Hampton today, March 31st. Please visit him. Ivan loves playing with other cats.
Update: Ivan is very energetic now and would do best in a family with a younger cat for him to play and chase rather than an older settled cat. He jumps and climbs like a cat in the wild!!! Ivan is an escape artist. He will camp out at the front door and if one isn't paying attention, he will dart out and hide in the bushes. He is hard to catch because he loves chasing the butterflies, etc. He will need to be in a home where if he escapes out the door, he will be safe until he allows his owner to catch him. That means no busy street with traffic.
Ivan is still an escape artist, but he is also a lover of water. He jumps into the shower after his foster dad gets out and he loves to play with the water coming from the spigot and the toliet. He also is a counter jumper. The best way to avoid this bad behavior is to use a water bottle. He will continue to jump and the foster parents continue to work solve this issue. Please visit Ivan at the Petco store in Hampton. You will love his smooth coat which sheds very little.
