Hugo was born in Chicago in the summer of 1995. He was rescued by a dear friend who runs a no-kill shelter. He was in a camper truck inside a garage during a record heat spell where the temperatures were in the low 100s and the heat index was in the 120s. Sadly, many of his relatives didn't make it. But Hugo thrived at the shelter. We met when I was taking some pictures for the shelter web page. He sort of velcroed himself to me and soon came home. He is a least part Norwegian Forest Cat and full of love. Even at 14 he still runs around like a nut with the laser mouse. He is a great big brother to several others also from my friend's shelter.
