Hansel, a snuggler and cuddler, is also full of energy


Dear Winston: 

I am Hansel, and I am an owner-surrendered, 1-year-old male, medium-sized feline. I have been living at the Humane Society of Rome Animal Shelter since mid-April. 

I am full of energy and love to run around chasing cat toys. One of my favorite things is to see how quickly I can climb to the top of the cat tree! I guess I still have quite a lot of ‘kitten’ left in me — and I would be happy to show someone just how much!

After play time is over, though, I am definitely a snuggler and cuddler. 

I am looking for a forever (and ever) home, as we all are.

Thank you Winston.

Love, Hansel. 

Dear Hansel:

Thank you for writing, it was so good to hear from you. I wish your photo was in color as your fur is such a beautiful orange — so handsome!

Good luck to you!

Best wishes, Winston
