I have been taking care of this little guy for 10 months outside and was able to catch him and get him to a doctor. In the four days that he was in our home, he was personable, ate with my other cats, used the litter box, and slept. He has allowed me to touch him and pet him gently on his neck, head, belly and back. He needs a lot of patience since he is very fearful initially. It is clear to me that he was once in a home and definitely wanted to be in ours. I cannot keep him but will not give up on him. He is currently with a foster mom in St. Paul, but I am the direct contact in finding him his home. He has all of his shots, is in good health and is neutered. He will warm up to you in time, but he needs a lot of time. Bucket loads of time. He is very fearful until you earn his trust. He likes neck, head, belly and back rubs. He really needs to find his 'person.'
