EBONY – A1106016
Safe - 3-23-2017 Brooklyn
SAFE 3/23/17 These housemates are a little wary around new people and in the shelter environment, so we want to get them into loving homes where they can explore and adjust at their own pace as soon as we can! Though these young kitties seem initially unsure, after some gentle petting they have been opening up some and leaning in for gentle cheek and head rubs! They would all be happiest in experienced kitty homes that understand they need a little patience and time warming up on their own.

Hiding under bogus paper. Eyes widen when I uncovered him. Body curled up, sniffs hand and accepts touch. Seems to appreciate attention, closes eyes and leans in when rubbed on cheek. Didn’t mind being pet along his body. Wasn’t able to coax forward, gave him some tuna and treats. Offered him a kuranda bed.
