If there was ever a kitty who needed a happy ending it would be this guy! He was left in a box outside the shelter, covered in fleas, and then we discovered very serious bite wounds that were badly infected. After a month of meds and TLC he's doing well physically but still working through some emotional scars. He will still occasionally flinch when you raise your hand to pet him, and he seems very fearful of the other cats and in a constant defensive mode, but is making progress. We discovered he LOVES getting brushed and it's fun to watch him enjoy that so much. He would probably do best as an only cat or in a home where the other cat(s) are very passive. He's a hard luck guy who deserves a great home!
