Find a pet to adopt
I am already spayed and up to date with shots.
I was 8 weeks old when late at night my former care taker dropped me off at the local county park. Scared and lonely I found a hiding place and stayed their until I saw a bunch of cats beginning to gather under a light where a man was feeding. After he walked away I ran up and began to eat tiny morsels that were left by the other feral cats. Not until after several weeks of hiding from large dogs and coyotes did I began to trust the man that was bringing food every day. I started out slowly by approaching him closer and closer until one day I decided to give him my trust by rubbing on his leg. He seemed to like that and encouraged me to do it often. Eventually I was sitting on his lap and allowing him to give me hugs and kisses on the head. He then contacted St. Francis and they decided that I am so sweet that they want me to go into a forever home instead of living on the streets. I would like that too. I am communicating with my foster that I would like a home that likes black kittens that play, purr and want to be where they are. If that is you, then I am all yours.
