A soulful boy who wears his big heart on his sleeve!
We knew that Squash was special, sensitive soul from the first moment we set eyes on him. A Good Samaritan spotted the tiny tabby quivering under a roadside bush, scooped him up and brought him to the local emergency vet hospital. Squash was so tiny he fit in his benefactor’s hands, where he sat, still as a mouse, taking in his new surroundings through his big gold eyes. No longer tiny, Squash is still gazing at the world through those golden eyes. As a baby, Squash happily allowed himself to be passed around from person to person, but he's become more and more cautious about strangers as he's grown. So even though we don't know of a single bad or scary thing that has happened to him (other than trips to the v-e-t for shots and neutering), he's turned into a shy guy who holds back except with his foster mom and a small circle of trusted friends. (When his scaredy-cat defenses have been worn down--treats and gentle handling help--he will still agree to be cradled like a baby, and has the most endearing habit of patting your cheek with his paw.) But please don’t think this little guy is all Mr. Milquetoast. When in the company of trusted humans and felines, Squash lets loose and plays like a krazy kat. He is used to other cats of all ages, the presence of dogs, and has exceptional little-brother potential for your cat-loving cat. He took the March 13, 2013 adoption of his favorite foster sisters Cherry & Plum in stride, but we can tell he misses them. Squash is hoping for a special someone with the patience to wait for him to let down his guard.
