SAFE 5/12/16 A volunteer writes: You will find Twister watching you. I opened his door, he was a little aloft at first. I petted his head, which he enjoyed the attention, and that is when he started to show what a wonderful cat he really is. He loved my head rubs, rolling on his side wanting more. Petting his body he looked at me with his sweet green eyes. He is a gentle guy for being big guy. He previously lived with children and another cat. He is an over all nice guy to have around.
