About Me

Active within 2277 Days

Hi! My name is Herbie

I am Domestic Shorthair from Springville, CA

Nicknames: Herbus Catus - When he's in trouble! (Equivelent to your mom using your full name when you were in trouble as a kid!)

Age: 7 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: He was born in our back yard along with 5 siblings. (Mom is a stray) I could see them from our bedroom window and I checked in on them every day. One day, sitting in my living room, I looked up and there he was just sitting and staring at me. I put him back out with his siblings and within minutes, he was back. I realized he had managed to come in thru our dog door. I kept it blocked for awhile but that nite, opened it back up so our dog could go out. The next morning, all the kittens were gone. I figured mom must have moved them. Then, out from under our bedroom dresser comes little Herbie! I couldn't believe it and worried that mom had left without him. As I was holding him and reassuring him he'd be cared for, his 5 little mewing siblings all came out from under our dresser! Herbie had decided that they all should come inside and stay with us for the nite! Outside, mama cat suddenly appeared meowing so I let her in so she could get to her babies. She promptly laid down and the little ones started nursing. After nursing and sleeping awhile, they all started exploring and mama cat made them all use our cat's litter box. After some rearranging, kitten proofing, and fast shopping for supplies, the little family had moved in. All because Herbie decided inside was better than outside!

My favorite tricks and treats are: Figuring out the pet door at 3 weeks old is a pretty good trick! We have to keep it shut now or he'll go right out! (This initially made our dog very unhappy but she's adjusted quite nicely - good dog!) and Whatever I'm eating! He doesn't like any of the cat treats I've given him but becomes very attentive if I use a little piece of meat. And once he stole a whole chicken breast right off my plate!

Where I hang out: Top of the cat tree in our living room - it's by a window and he's a sun worshipper!

My favorite grubs: Fancy Feast Elegant Medlys in sauce. He gives me a very stern look if I don't give it to him for every meal! He'll still eat what I serve but he has to stare pointedly at me first if it's not his favorite!

My pet peeves: He doesn't have any peeves. Herbie is very easygoing. He even likes our dog!

What I love about my owners: Mom gives good pets! I love having my ears and chin scratched and she never turns me down no metter what she's doing. And she talks with me all the time. I love spending time with mom!

My cat hobbies: Herbie loves to help me wash dishes! He sits up on the sink, bats at the soap bubbles, drinks from the faucet (only when I do dishes), and watches everything I do!

Pet motto: Be Fearless!

How We Met

Well, after he decided he and his whole family should move in when he was just a baby, how could I turn him away?!
