Parker is the sweetest cat one can ever met. Parker was found as a stray outside. When he first arrived at his foster home he was terrified and did not know how to trust humans. He probably did not have a very happy and good life prior to coming under TCR's care. All of his initial behaviours show signs of psychological abuse. However, he has left all those bad days behind and is ready for a new beginning in his life.
Within three days of his arrival at his foster home, Parker transitioned from a growling and hissing cat into a super affectionate and love bug. He loves to sleep with his foster mom and enjoys grooming humans (especially their eye brows!). Since Parker is a bit overweight he does not like to be picked up, and he is still in the process of learning how to trust humans. He does care for his humans well -
sometimes he thinks that his human is danger of running water and will try to save you. He is also so caring towards his foster feline sister. He always grooms her and makes sure his little sister is well taken care of.
Parker has a lot of potential to be a super cuddly cat. This little love bug loves to wake up his humans at night with some purrs. Parker needs to learn that not all humans are bad and he can trust them. He needs a very special, patient, and loving family. He deserves a second chance in this life. Please, don't judge this boy by what happened in his past. Any cat can turn into a cuddly love bug but it takes a very special family to love a cat like Parker.
His foster family shares: "Parker is the most special cat I have ever fostered. He has gone through a lot in his past life and needs a very special family who is willing to patiently wait for him to warm up to them. I am pretty sure he will turn into a lap cat given he is in a very loving and special home. Parker's family should be willing to setup a small room for him until he adjusts to his new environment. He would love to be in a home with other pets given he is introduced slowly.". Adopt Parker today!
