Hal is a four-year-old cat who was found on the street, abandoned in a box. He suffered severe dental problems that caused him extreme pain. At the ASPCA Animal Hospital, Hal had several teeth extracted and all of his fur shaved.
It was a long road to recovery, and it took Hal some time to heal and warm up to his human companions at the ASPCA Adoption Center. Today, Hal is a social and affectionate cat who loves attention. He might feel a bit nervous in his new surroundings, but if you approach him slowly, he’ll soon come out of his shell and will be ready for plenty of lap time.
Hal would do best in an adults-only home with an experienced cat adopter. He doesn’t like to be around dogs, but with the proper introductions, he could cohabitate with a friendly cat.
Hal is available for adoption at the ASPCA Adoption Center. If you are interested in adopting please call our Adoptions department in New York City at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120. To learn more about Hal, please visit his page.
