Fast forward to today, and Finn has made good progress in coming out of his shell, realizing that people aren’t all bad after all! Once you pass the sniff test, Finn actually really enjoys being pet and brushed. No worries, the sniff test is quite simple – Finn will slowly approach the hand you offer, get a good whiff of it, and when you pass the test he will lean into your hand so the petting may commence! You can see him visibly relax as you pet him and then the purring starts! Finn is still hesitant about being picked up, but once in your arms where he can hear the soothing beat of your heart, he relaxes and the purring begins once again! Finn will let you hold and rock him like a baby. If you sit on the couch, he’ll let you hold him against your chest and when he tires of that position, Finn will snuggle up beside you on the couch! Finn is a vocal guy, happy to share his thoughts with you and hoping you’ll return the favor.
We knew Finn was feeling more comfortable with us when we saw evidence that he was secretly playing when no one else was around! Now that he’s playing out in the open, we’ve discovered Finn loves toys he can pounce on, especially stuffed mice toys that have tails he can chew! He also likes sparkle balls and balls with bells inside of them that he can roll around to his heart’s content! Finn also seems to enjoy the companionship of other friendly felines.
Although Finn is still shy, he has made amazing progress in the time we’ve had him. This handsome, sweet, lovable little guy needs a family that will continue to build his confidence and trust, giving him all the love they have to help him reach his full kitty potential! Watching him blossom has been an amazing journey, one that we invite you to take part in!
