POW! This Harvey Isn’t a Hurricane — He’s Is a Beautiful, Chatty Tabby

“Cats are furry waterfalls of grace.”

The term “tabby” is often used to describe a breed of feline, but the term actually means the pattern of a cat’s coat, not the specific breed.

Such is the case of KCAC’s very own Harvey, a 1-year-old brown-and-white tabby owner surrendered along with his brother Hopper. Although Harvey’s breed is that of a domestic shorthair, you could make the case for inventing a specific breed just for him, perhaps placing him in the handsome, princely or noble categories.

He seems to enjoy the company of other cats, as long as they’re not too dominating. Although he may play shy at first, with the right amount of love and a few toys, he’ll begin his chatty monologue to help keep you company throughout the day.

Whatever his ancestry, Harvey is definitely a cat with a personality that will make his new forever family happy they’ve given him a forever home.

KCAC Updates

Congratulation to Stripes, our male brown tiger cat and Shadow, a female black domestic shorthair. They were able to find their forever home together last week. We’re so happy for the two of you!

Congrats to BB and Doc, who also were adopted together. We’re sure Doc is arranging the family unit according to how much cuddling time everyone gets.
