🥊😻 MEET HUGO 😻🥊
After doing his time on the streets, sweetheart Hugo is looking for a home to call his own! Despite a hard start to life foraging on the streets and having to compete for every meal, Hugo is incredibly gentle and sweet; very much the definition of 'lover not a fighter.'
Hugo is a sweet boy and very cat social! Although scared of humans at first, having had no exposure to them, it didn't take long for him to warm up. He can be hand fed and is very polite about it, and will drop his head down to get scritches on his forehead. Once he has a full belly and is relaxed he will allow full body pats, and has recently started purring during pats!
Companions (Children, Cats & Dogs)
Hugo LOVES other cats. He is very playful, but a little shy - despite the resident cats wanting to romp and roll around, he watches before joining in. He would be happiest snuggled up and smooching on another cat. Hugo has had exposure to some big doggos but they scare him, so a cat-savvy small dog would be a better fit. Hugo lives in a quiet household and has had little exposure to other adults, and has not met young children or teens - but the sudden movements and noise would scare him.
Likes / Dislikes
Hugo loves food, other cats, cuddles, mostly in that order! Once he learned how nice pats are, Hugo relaxed enough to start enjoying them. His primary loves are still food and other cats - he will trill and chirrup to try and get their attention. He doesn't like loud noises or sudden movements; he freezes when under stress, which can lead to him not being able to get away to a safer location.
My PURR-fect home would be a quiet, calm household, with other cats for him to love, he will need understanding humans that will look out for his best interests, given his tendency to freeze up.

Medical Notes: Hugo was exposed to cat flu, which is a respiratory infection. He did not show symptoms and was given the all clear by the vet.

FIV is transmitted through deep bite wounds. Due to his FIV Hugo will need to be an indoor only cat.
