Favorite Toy:
Itty bitty toy mice.

Smoked Turkey Lunchmeat.

He's a great jumper and can clear just about anything. He's also a good herder, like the cat version of a Border Collie. And he's a good teacher. He teaches Ben all kinds of things, like jumping the gate and drinking from the sink.


Arrival Story:
When Albie passed away I didn't think I wanted another cat, but then my husband started bugging me. I went to Petfinder looking for a Turkish Angora and found Ben. But while I was looking I noticed Harvey's picture and just couldn't get him out of my mind. I finally went to my husband a couple days later and brought up the subject of a second cat. As soon as I showed him Harvey's photo, he was in. We drove an hour and a half to get him and have been in love with him since.

Harvey started his life as a neighborhood stray somewhere on the west side of Phoenix. Summer days in Phoenix are often over 110 degrees. One day a lady found Harvey passed out in her driveway and took him to the vet to see if they could save him. The vet told her he was dehydrated and needed a bit more attention before he could be adopted, but they would call her to pick him up in about 2 weeks. When they called her back about 2 weeks later, they discovered that she herself had passed away. That was how Harvey ended up at Uncle Jack's Cats. His first couple months with us we waged war on the ear mites, and they are long gone. He has regained quite a bit of fur above his eyes, but you can still see where it's thinner than the rest.
