Kampbell Started Life Outside
Kampbell came to the Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARL) as a kitten from a rural area outside of Boston. He had a feeder, but had never been inside and wasn’t comfortable with human interactions.
Kampbell’s Four Months at ARL
An initial vet examination showed wounds of unknown origin (WUO) around his neck, so he went through a state-mandated four month quarantine in the shelter. Initially, he spent most of his time in a crate and avoided human touch, but we* quickly discovered that once you did start petting him, he went “from hissy to kissy” in moments. He became a staff and volunteer favorite during his quarantine, and also got along with every cat we housed with him! With his sweet, affectionate personality and his particular talent for getting along with other cats, we knew he would thrive in a cat cafe environment, so adopting him was a no-brainer!
Additional Facts about Kampbell
- Kampbell is about 14 months old and has the high energy and endless curiosity you would expect from an adolescent cat!
- In addition to keeping himself impeccably clean, he loves grooming other cats and humans (including unsuspecting feet, noses and foreheads/hair).
- His favorite toy is a stuffed yellow bird. You can often find him racing around with it in his mouth, and he will also drop it at your feet when he wants to chase after it (the higher/farther it’s thrown, the better!).
- Kampbell loves high places and always tries to claim the tallest perch available, where he will nap for hours.
