Hunter came to Black Cat Rescue from another area shelter where he was too shy to meet adopters. The shelter staff saw that despite his stress and nerves, he was leaning into pets and definitely affectionate, but the cage lifestyle just wasn’t for him! When the shelter contacted Black Cat Rescue to see if we could take him on, we jumped at the chance.

Hunter wasn't cut out for the cage lifestyle and came to BCR to stay in a foster home until he was adopted.

Hunter arrived in his foster home with Kristen and Andrew and won them over almost immediately! As predicted, he is super affectionate and gentle with head bumps for everyone and little kisses all over his foster family. Hunter also proved to be very playful, very vocal, and he gets along great with other cats– basically the perfect companion!

When Keely read Hunter’s adoption profile, she was interested in him immediately. Keely scheuled a visit with Hunter in his foster home where he was shy at first. Luckily for Hunter, Keely was very understanding of his hesitation. His notes from the previous shelter discussed his stress and shyness, when we showed Keely the notes her reaction was perfect, “Oh! My little baby! He’s nervous! He has all the time in the world to relax and get accustomed to here [Keely’s home].” We knew right then that Keely and Hunter might just be destined for each other.

Hunter and Keely are a match made in heaven! This handsome boy loves to sleep in Keely's bed and she wakes up with his head on her shoulder each morning.

When Keely took Hunter home, he was nervous at first, but warmed up quicker than we could have anticipated! It has proved to be a match made in heaven. Keely has kept us updated on Hunter’s transition and there have been tons of silly little stories about how well he’s doing. Just as Kristen had mentioned, he follows Keely around and chats up a storm with her, letting her know  his opinions on pretty much everything and just generally acting as her shadow. When Hunter isn’t preaching his kitty wisdom to anyone who will listen, he’s holding onto Keely’s arm to give it kisses, exploring every single nook and cranny of Keely’s home, or keeping Keely’s shoulders warm through the night. It’s a perfect match!

Congratulations to Hunter and Keely! We are so thrilled for you and we wish you  many many years of happiness and kitty kisses!
