Houdini started out as a scared injured kitty trying to survive alone in the great outdoors and did attempt an escape act during his rescue but since he was taken in by his wonderful foster family his wounds are healing, and he has blossomed into a confident sassy cat who knows exactly what he wants from his forever home 🏡
Like his namesake, this is one smart kitty and his fosterer is convinced he understands everything she says to him. He is super sweet and friendly but on his own terms – he loves following his fosterer around rubbing off her legs and he also enjoys head bumps and chin scritches but he doesn’t like being handled as much. Although he’s now gotten used to human interaction he still would be best suited to a home with no children and understanding adults who will treat him with the proper care.
It has also recently been discovered that Houdini has diabetes and will require insulin injections twice a day. However, it is easy to administer the injection and Houdini is friendly enough that he doesn’t mind it.
Houdini is VERY food motivated (he has a particular weakness for wet food) and surprise, surprise, he’s even broken into the food supply a few times but with a name like Houdini, a few locks or closed cupboards would be no match for him. But with his diabetes, food control is necessary.
Houdini also likes to play although a smart kitty like him gets bored with easy to capture fluffy toys and cat trees that are no match for an escape artist of his calibre. The elusive laser pointer though keeps him entertained and outwitted.
Most importantly, he will need to be the only animal in his forever home as he is not a fan of other cats or dogs.
Houdini will be happy out in a home with a kind caring human or two who understand his special needs, a couch to sleep on and the occasional head and chin rubs. If you can give him that, he will definitely be retiring from the escape artist business and taking up a new job as magical resident kitty 🐈
