Still trying to find someone to take Timmy...
We have a truce now, and he'll come out and let me pet him... but he's got this strange thing with feet. I can't figure that one out... I walk in the room and he attacks my feet (no teeth, just batting, but the cat has a strong punch!:)), but when I sit down, he'll come out and let me pet him. Hrm.

He's still growling and hissing a lot, but him getting up and wandering, and eating and drinking makes me happy. Of course, I had to laugh when I first got him to eat... some wet cat food goop on my finger, and he was licking it off while growling softly... "nomnomnomnomnom..." It was hilarious:)

I'm gonna have to get a picture of him, but he's a cute little black cat (of course, generally the hardest to find a home for) with a gorgeous set of gold eyes. I think with some love and patience, he'll come out of his shell...

I also think that he needs to be an only cat... I haven't put him around mine yet, but he's still a little ornery...

I'm looking at finding a shelter to take him, but that's tough for me. I'd much rather find him a home...

Current Mood: hopeful hopeful

I think he's playing with your feet. I have a cat that does the same thing, like my feet are toys. If he's not biting then I wouldn't worry. I'd try to find him a home first and if you can't find one, then look at the shelter as an option. Good luck. Hugs.

I've got several people looking... I just don't want Mikasi to get pissed off, you know? Fortuantely, he's in the computer room, so I'm really the only one who sees him.

As for the feet... I'd think it was playing too if it weren't for the hissing and growling:) Or maybe that's just how he is. He chased me out of the room last night... went to go in, and he was standing there yelling at me and going for the feet. LOL I done been dominated:)

Oh yeah, I completely understand. That’s funny that he chased you out of the room. Good luck.

*crosses fingers* If things go well with the apt search, Joe and I may have a place by the end of May that'll be cat friendly.

Let me know... I've got someone who may want to meet him and possibly take him... would you be oaky with that or did you have your heart set on him?

He's a good kitty, but needs some major lovin'... he doesn't ever want me to leave when I have to go out of the computer room:)

Joe and I would definitely love to have him, but if someone's gonna be able to take him sooner than we would, that's ok.
