This is like one of those miracle cats….what a story…from the rescue to where “Briar”: is today. He has come such a long ways….and he just needs to go a little further. He just doesn’t show well at adoption clinics…but as you can see with me-he is great. Yes…he may hide for a while, but then he will warm right up to you.
5-21-19 Briar – Male – Gray and White – DSH – DOB: March 2014 – 5 years old Briar was trapped with his feral mama and siblings at an abandoned house in Glenville in 2014. We should have immediately separated the two month old kittens from their very feral mama right away, but we didn’t know any better. We kept them in the same room together for another month until the entire family got “fixed”. By then, a lot of mama’s feral had rubbed off on the kittens, even though we handled them every day. From day one Briar was the most afraid of people of all the six kittens, while his mama just hated us! Mama eventually went to a barn and all the other kittens were adopted out while they were still little. For such a big boy Briar is still fearful with new people, but he does so love to be petted! He comes into his foster parents’ bed every morning and begs for skritches.
Briar doesn’t like to be alone, so he would prefer to live with another cat with whom he can snuggle. He loves all other cats and gets along with everyone. He was adopted in late 2018, but even though his new people tried everything, the poor guy hid for weeks and eventually stopped eating, so he was returned to his foster home. At adoption events he crawls into the litter box and gives everyone the stink eye, which does not make a good impression on potential adopters. He’s a sweet guy who just needs a loving home!
His foster parents believe the right furever home is out there for this lovely boy. Is it your home?
