BUDDY UPDATE 2/15/17: Buddy has been in a foster home now for 10 days. He is doing great, and is really ready for a home of his own. He loves hanging out with his foster mom, spent 45 minutes on her lap the other night and wasn't happy when she made him get up. He hangs out with and gets along with her other kitties. Keep reading if you want his background:

This striking boy has a sad story. He and his sister were left alone in an apartment. A neighbor eventually realized that the people had left and the cats were still there, so the cats ended up at the animal shelter the day after Thanksgiving. Buddy's sister took this all in stride and was readily adopted. Buddy hasn't made the transition as easily. He was SO scared that for the first 8 weeks we thought he was feral. No one could touch him, he would hiss and swat when anyone got near his kennel. In late January, he finally started to calm down just a little, and would let you look at him without swatting and hissing, and even occassionally sniff a finger. His current foster decided to see how he did in a home when she went to visit him in the shelter, and after he sniffed her fingers and accepted her pets, he started giving kisses. He loved being petted, and rubbed against her hand for more. A couple weeks later he went into her home as a foster. He is coming around. He needs a home where someone WITH A LOT OF PATIENCE will just give him a small room (so he can't hide) for as long as it will take for him to get acclimated (it was only a week in his current foster home,) then gradually let him in other parts of the home. He is neutered, has had his FVRCP and rabies vaccinations, and just needs to find that special, super-patient person. Might that be you?
