On May 20, 2016, beloved Paxton resident Billy O'Connor passed away. He was young and it was sudden and he had some animals. From my understanding the dogs got rehomed, but he had a garage cat, a wild garage cat. I was asked by a friend who was feeding the cat if she could trap it would I have a place to turn it loose because it was wild. Sure, we feed several cats out of our garage, he would be fine and he might just more on.
After feeding this cat and barely seeing him poke his head out of his hiding places, he was trapped. He was neutered, vaccinated and turned loose in our yard.
He disappeared for about a week, then we started to hear meowing in the bushes. He is back, supposed we should name him, we will name him Connor in honor of Billy. He would come every night and meow at us to feed him, then he would dart into the bush and hide where he wanted his food delivered, which we did. Eventually we could pet him in the bush while he ate, then we made him come out to eat, then we could pet him, then we could pick him up, then he started to use the cat door and come into our house, and now...well...the following picture shows where he is today.
Connor needs a home, and a furever family. He gets along with other cats and isn't bothered by our dog. Quick movements do still startle him so I don't think he should go to a family with small children. He is neutered, fully vaccinated, and uses the litter box like he has been an indoor cat his whole life.
If you would like to give Connor a home, please contact us, he is ready to go. Like most cats, he isn't fond of change so he will take a little while to come around, but with the transformation he has made with us we know he will be a great cat for someone.
