About Me

Active within 2099 Days

Hi! My name is Herbi

I am Domestic Shorthair from North Haven, CT

Nicknames: The Herbster, Herbicide

Age: 16 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: I have survived asthma, a heart murmur and had my thyroid removed.

My favorite tricks and treats are: Really, at my age, I'm not into tricks and I love deli meats. Any kind, ham, turkey, roast beef. I also love to eat anything my parents are having for dinner. Shrimp, chicken, fillet, and the best is when they cook me a Herbi burger on the grill.

Where I hang out: Just about anywhere. I like sleeping with my mom, I put my arms around her neck, like a hug then lay my face on her cheek while she cuddles me like a baby

My favorite grubs: I'll eat anything as long as it's fresh. I catch rabbits and eat them all the time. YUM!! Moles and mice and birds are fair game as well

My pet peeves: My brother Jerry and sister Vivian get on my nerves

What I love about my owners: They took me in when I needed a family and friends. The unconditional love they give me is more than I can ask for and my neighborhood is just paradise.

My cat hobbies: I love to just lounge around the house or backyard.

Pet motto: I'm the mayor. It's Herbi's world.

How We Met

Our cat Ogeda brought Herbi to us stating he didn't have a home. But, Herbi was fixed so we knew he belonged to someone. Ogeda insisted he live with us. We put up fliers but no one came forward so we kept him. That was in September of 2001. Come spring of 2002, our next door neighbor, who is a police officer, asked us how long we'd had him. When we told him since September, he said he knew whose cat that belonged to. Our hearts sank, we didn't want to give him up. He told us that a college student was on the highway and crashed her car. She was killed. He was the officer on the scene. When he went to inform the parents of the tradgey, they asked where her cat was. He told them that there was no cat at the scene. We believe he survived the accident and Ogeda found him, alone and scared. Fate is a beautiful thing. His first mom also loved him very much because she microchipped him. Our vet discovered the chip after an x-ray she took of his thyroid 3 years into our ownership. She scanned it but her reader was not compatible. She asked us to have it read before she'd perform the surgery. I called several shelters in the area and the Humane Society of CT but no one had the scanner that would read it. We were ready to go to court to keep him as we were a family, and our vet said she'd testify we were great pet parents and we should keep him, after all, we'd invested a lot in his health and he loved us. We were a family. We still don't know what that chip says and it'll stay that way. He's been with us for 6 years now and I wouldn't give him up for anything in the world.
