Since arriving at TALGV in 2017 as a terrified stray, I’ve evolved from a don’t-even-look-at-me kind of guy to one who enjoys soft words, petting, and brushing. I’m still shy (I’ll never be the “meeter and greeter” type), but I have a peaceable soul, get along with other cats (especially my friend, Burt, who are what, in the neighborhood, you’d call “bros”). I often help make new cats feel more comfortable in their new circumstances, and when others hiss at me, I just turn and walk away. I’m so hoping there’s a patient cat person out there who’ll help me (and maybe Burt too?) remember what it’s like to be loved in a real home.
