We found Henson under the trash compactor at our apartment complex when he was barely two weeks old. We had to feed him with a syringe and help him use the bathroom because he was so young but he grew super fast and turned into a giant cat with such a pleasant, social personality. Before him I had never met a cat who seemed to bop to his own beat quite like Henson or met one who liked to crawl under the blankets to take a nap right beside you.
He was raised with another cat and two dogs and has always loved their companionship. Though larger and physically stronger than our other cat he never wanted to be the dominant cat, he mainly just wanted to eat, sleep and cuddle. Sometimes, he would imitate our dogs behavior and chase his tail or even play fetch with his favorite toys.
Unfortunately, after we had to put down our other pets due to old age, he feel into a bout of depression. As sad as it was to see, it was also sweet to see how much he loved his fellow furry friends. Thankfully, after enough time he was able to pull through and while he does seem a touch "older" he's still the sociable, lovable cat we fell in love with to start.
You can't go wrong with a street cat in my opinion. They're lovable and
don't have the prissy personality you can sometimes find in other breeds. If you're considering one, do it!
