Great things come in fives-did you know that? A high five, the five senses, the five elements...and me. I am Cinco: four pieces wonderful, one piece special. I am a terrific, friendly boy who arrived here in 2011 as a tiny kitten. We figured out early on that my eyelids needed some surgery and took care of that. I do look a little sleepy all the time but can see just fine. And although I am perfectly healthy, I have always seemed to be the kitty who catches a cold first-if someone comes in who has been around a sick feline, I am like the canary in a coal mine...sneeze! Sneeze! So I might be like the kid who needs the extra pediatrician visit from time to time...or to be in a home that is very careful with me. You know who you are-the thoughtful people out there who wash their hands after greeting someone else's paws before they give scritches to their brood at home. The great people here think I will really thrive when I simply find a lower traffic home of my own. You can see in my picture that I am a great big lunk of love-we just want to be clear that my new home should be someone who knows to treat me like the special guy I am. Other cats are fine...I have spent almost my entire life around others and do well as member of a pack. My preference, however, does seem to be attention from people and I am the current lovable greeter who meets most everyone at the door. So come on by and meet me-you won't believe I am still here. I may be Cinco, but am ready to be Uno in your heart!     You can find me at Pet Finder!

The Happy Tail of Tyler

This is the Happy Tail of Tyler. Some Happy Tails are a long time coming, and although Tyler had a very good life for a long time, now he has the really great life he has always deserved. Here is how it happened. .. A long time ago-in cat years, forever, but really about 10 years...actually, a long time not matter how you look at it. So, a long time ago, a great cat arrived at the Humane Society of South Brevard. Like so many, he was someone's family member at one time, then found himself here wondering what in the world happened to the world he used to know. He had a sweet, round tabby face and would look deep into your eyes...and bump! Tyler loved to give head bumps. And he loved affection and attention from people. But he was confused about being abandoned, and a little sharp side of his personality came out. Every once in a while, he would lightly nip a finger that was petting him. And sometimes, Tyler would forget where the litter box was. Now, at the Cat House there are many, many litter boxes. You can't stand anywhere in the house and not see one, even if you are at cat level. So we knew Tyler was making a statement. Why did my family give me up? But overall, Tyler was very happy here and tolerated the many cats and kittens who would come and go. He became a lifer; an old timer, recognized and loved by the volunteers. When Tyler started to lose weight, we thought for sure he wasn't long for this side of the rainbow bridge. Long time supervolunteer Marianne decided she would take Tyler and give him his very own home for his final days. Then, it was his final weeks. Well, we're well into the next year with Mr. Tyler, and he is finding the litter box every day, eating like a champ...and never ever biting the hand that feeds him. He is the happiest cat ever. The moral of this story is very clear, and very important: there is no such thing as a bad cat (or dog for that matter). There are only great cats that find themselves in sad situations. Even though Tyler was loved and roamed free inside the Humane Society of South Brevard, all he ever wanted was all any of us wants; he wanted a home of his own.
