Thurgood is a cat's cat. He loves to be with his feline buddies. Human buddies? He needs a little convincing on that score and who can blame him? Born a feral cat, he came to us after one of his siblings was killed and his sister injured by a dog roaming onto the property where they lived. As far as Thurgood knows, he'll be safe if he can run. And so he keeps a safe distance.
But he is such a sweet boy! For a cat-savvy person who is patient and kind, Thurgood may one day be a nice friend, and maybe even a lap cat. In his foster home, Thurgood's learned to trust familiar faces, and his foster mom sees his soft side. But most other people only see the shy guy. So you have to give him the time he needs to trust, and you will be rewarded with the sweetest friend. Can you help him open his heart just a little further?
