The boys have been living in one of our open community rooms for awhile now. Hix is still wary but progress has been made. He now allows himself to be patted without flinching or running away. Sometimes it takes a really long time for these former outdoor cats to overcome the effects of their early upbringing.
Perhaps he is starting to think more highly of humans, now. Maybe he has been watching how the friendly cats get all the attention. Maybe he wants some attention too. He is still not fond of being handled, but he will tolerate short periods of patting. Hix may be ready for a home with patient adults who can complete the socialization process.
His brother HAMILTON is a solid gray guy with thick fur. He is even warier than Hix. He hangs out usually on the highest shelves of the room, watching….. And camera-shy too, apparently.
These fellows can be adopted separately or together. Come and ask to see them in “A” room.
