George got here and we could see that he had suffered neglect and then discovered that he had been abused. George was so fearful that we couldn’t touch him for a few weeks until he learned that he could trust us.
We promised him he would never be neglected or abused again. George still has fear of humans and will let you know when it’s not a good time to try to pick him up. He makes his little bat face that says to back up and back off.
His aloofness doesn’t last too long and he’s back looking to be loved.
George is fully vetted now and ready to go to a home of his own. He will only go to a home that understands what he’s had to go through and is willing to give him his space when he wants it. Our little guy is one of a kind and like we promised will never ever be hurt again.
George is around 11 or 12 years old and weighs in at around 6 lbs.
He is located in Freeport NY
