6-7-14 – Dennis (still!) needs a home!

Jump to comments

Our sweet Dennis STILL needs his forever home.

He sure wishes his people would hurry up. He’s waiting!

What can I tell you about Dennis that I haven’t already? He’s the sweetest boy, but he’s very skittish if you walk toward him. However, if you sit down (or, as he prefers, lay down on the bed), he’s right there for love and petting.

Enjoys a good chin scratching.


LOVES a good belly rub, and when he’s comfortable with you, he’ll flop down next to you and present the belly immediately.

Gets along well with other cats, though kittens freaked him out at first because they’re so tiny and terrifying.

Then he had to make this face, because they annoyed him.

Then they REALLY annoyed him.

There’s not an alpha bone in Dennis’s body, though, so he adjusted quickly.

He’s had to discipline those kittens a few times, but he’s gentle about it. Little ones have to learn how to act right, you know.

He is just the most beautiful brown tabby with thick, silky fur and gorgeous green eyes.

Dennis is about 8 months old now (I think – I don’t remember what his date of birth is, but I can certainly find out for you if you want to know!), and from what I can tell, he’s going to be a small cat. He is a sweet little lovebug whose interests include snack time, belly rubs, nap time (with cuddles), and wildly running around with a toy in his mouth. He’s fond of feather teasers – not a huge jumper, but he’s got some decent springs in his knees – and really likes batting around mylar balls.

He’s a reserved kitty, but when he decides you’re okay, he is an absolute little love.

You can read a detailed description of Dennis here, and read more about him here, and here.

Dennis is located in the Huntsville, Alabama area, and although Challenger’s House will do long-distance adoptions, the adopter is required to come here to get him. I believe he’d be okay on a long car ride (in a crate), and might be okay in an airport situation if tranquilizers were used to calm him down.

If you have any questions about Dennis, please email me – mizrobyn (at) gmail.com He’s been here with us for four months now, so we know him pretty well. If you are interested in adopting him, you can contact Susan at Challenger’s House by phone – 256-420-5995 – or by email: challengershouse (at) mchsi.com
