Hemsworth is a young, good-natured kitty who loves lap cuddles with head-scratches and is totally fine being independent as well! If you are an independent person looking for a cat who will play with you, give you love, but also be fine on his own, then Hemsworth if your guy!
Hemsworth might look angry or bored, but he is only wearing a mask to fool you! He loves exploring, jumping over barriers and prowling his pad. Hemsworth likes to have multiple water sources and has a quirk of really liking freshly poured water from a Brita pitcher. He LOVES to play and is able to play by himself with a ball. He also loves it when you throw balls (the chase!) or using a string/feather toy. We're working on sewing him a small cape to fulfill his flying super-hero destiny!
He is un-phased by our foster's resident cat – like most leading men, he plays it cool and doesn’t seem very interested in interacting with other cats apart from an occasional double-kiss on the cheek in greeting (it's very European). Sometimes the resident cat scares him a little with rough play which may be suppressing some personality points. There is room for Hemsworth’s personality to come out further in his own environment. Yet like most adventurers, he's good with an occasional cat chase (no stunt double required).
Like the A-list celebrity he is, Hemsworth appreciates humans who can respect his space. Much like his namesake, you can't simply rush up to him like an avid fan and try to pet him. So rude. And no autographs, please.
And like most leading men, he does LOVE a good head scratch from his inner circle of people. During a head-scratch, Hemsworth will close his eyes in bliss and flatten his ears in contentment. After a few moments of petting, he will melt in your hand or flop down next to you. He will take infinite pets, but at his pace. He’s been known to stand on his hind paws your reach your hand, and on occasion will walk around you and rub himself on your legs with affection. You should be so lucky.
Hemsworth also doesn't mind being picked up! He's open to lap cuddles too as long as he’s getting head pets at the same time.
Half the time, you will find Hemsworth sleeping in a comfy spot. The other half of the time, he likes to be in your general vicinity while relaxing, grooming himself, or napping. At night, he will hang around sleep outside your door or in a cat bed in the bedroom and won’t bother you at all.
In case it's been a while since you've had a young man in the family, remember they love food. Open the frig and get ready to stock the cupboards, our boy Hemsworth likes to eat! He comes running at the sound of food, paws at the door where the food is stored, and always seems hungry for more food. Hemsworth is often interested in Human food and will eat out of your hand when offered --or even investigate your plates and bowls himself! #boysgottoeat
To burn off all of those calories, Hemsworth eagerly chases around string toys or anything attached to the end of a string. He loves to play with and chew on crinkly toys as well. Hemsworth will never say no to a good kitty kicking toy session.
