Wednesday's Waif: Big Hughes

"Hey there! Are you looking for a big cat with a big personality? Well look no further!

They call me Big Hughes for just those reasons. I came to Wayside from another shelter where I was picked up as a stray.

When I came in it was found that my right eye had been damaged early in my life and I had little vision. In order to prevent further problems and pain for me, the good doctors decided it was best to remove it."

"So here I am, a handsome, red tabby one-eyed wonder! While I was recovering I got to stay in a foster home. I had so much fun and got to show off my playful, confident personality.

My favorite thing in the whole world is playing! I am not picky with what I play with, mouse toys, jingly balls, tennis balls...I love them all!

Sometimes when I'm having SO much fun playing, I forget my manners and can nip. I don't mean to be rude, but I still have a lot of kitten ways inside and sometimes they come out. I got along with the other cats in my foster home, but sometimes my playful antics drove them a bit crazy."

Playin' hard requires NAPPIN' hard, too!

"I definitely need someone who can keep up with me! I also love to talk and would love to tell you all about me if you'll come on down to Wayside Waifs! When the day is done and I'm all played out, I love to snuggle and have my belly rubbed.

Could you be my special play mate? If you think so, come and have a conversation with me!

Meows to you,
Big Hughes"

Big Hughes' foster mom said this about him:

"AVOID the belly, he likes it, but it revs him up and he gets "grabby"  ;-)
He will also huff when he's highly stimulated, which happens when he interacts with other cats for the first time.
The way to his heart is play! Play play play all day, string toys, balls, mice, you name it, he will play with it!"  :-)

Big Hughes is a One-eyed LOVER boy and is revved up and ready to go to his forever home. If you're interested, he's waiting for you at Allie's Alma Mater, Wayside Waifs!
