HISTORY: HORUS HOUDINI (so named because he's quite the escape artist) was brought to the Santa Fe Animal Shelter and transferred to us when he was found to be FELV+. Since he is likely to be a carrier of the virus, HORUS HOUDINI needs an indoor home with no other cats, an FELV+ cat, or a healthy adult who has been vaccinated against the virus. FELV suppresses the immune system and is specific to felines; it cannot be transmitted to other animal species or to humans.
TEMPERAMENT: HORUS HOUDINI is a very sweet, calm and sociable lap cat who loves people; he will sit and receive affection as long as it's on offer. He is fine around young children and even lets them pet and stroke him; he also seems to get along well with gentle dogs. HORUS would be fine as an only cat, although he does (mostly) get along with other cats. If he feels crowded by too many other cats, he gets jealous and will sometimes bully the smaller cats. As noted above, HORUS HOUDINI got his name because he loves to bolt for any outside door as soon as it is opened, and he is quite clever at escaping. He loves to go outside on supervised outings however, and is getting used to wearing a harness and leash for this purpose. HORUS HOUDINI is a handsome boy with a short coat and buff tabby markings with large white areas, and striking light green eyes with brown 'eyeliner.'
