Hi there, my name is Ollie! I’ll tell you the truth, I’m not sure if I’m ready for a home yet, but if the perfect one comes along I’m ready. I lived outside for most of my life, and didn’t interact with a lot of people. Finally about a year ago I found myself near a place with some nice people. They started leaving out food for me, and eventually I started hanging out near them, and playing when they would bring toys out. I still wouldn’t let them catch me or pick me up though. Then when it started to get cold they brought me here to Cat Care Society. They did some tests, and found out that I have FIV. That means I can’t go back to living outside, like I was used to. I will still have a long full life, but it will have to be inside. I’ve been really nervous since coming here, but I’m slowly starting to warm up. Hopefully one day I’ll be ready for a new home.
We’re hoping this wonderful cat will warm up quickly with the right person paying attention, but it’s going to be a very slow process. Ollie will need a very special human. Someone with experience with scared and feral cats, who has the time and patience to dedicate to working with him. Anyone interested in Ollie will need to visit here at the shelter at least 3 times, possibly more, and show the staff their willingness and patience. One day, Ollie will be an amazing companion kitty for the right person.
