I Wish I Were a Snot Ball Shooter
Join Date: Feb 2003
I had a feral rescue for 11 years, my ma has had one for 14 years. Mine was rescued at about 8 weeks old and she was incredibly shy with strangers, very nervous and jumpy ... but she adored my dogs - especially Dutchy. She never really took to my hubby in the 6 years of her life that he lived here. Friends of mine always joked that they didn't really believe I had a cat.
My ma's was brought in at about 7 months old, and he's the shyest, jumpiest cat I've ever known of. Only my mom and dad and the vet have ever really "seen" him - because he hides from everyone and everything.
So, chances are you won't get a very social kitty out of the deal - but my Lizzie was a love-bug to me and loved to sleep under the covers next to me.
