Another one who arrived already named. 😦 He was part of the last big group from Quebec. He’s right at the beginning of this video:
He’s had a rough time: over-crowded shelter, long truck ride, overnight at the Feral Recovery Centre, time at a clinic, and into a store where he was VERY unhappy. I’m not surprised and that’s why he came to me. He’s been here over a week and I rarely see him out from under the desk.
He’s eating and using the litter box just fine. And I can lure him out from under the desk with treats now. But he still runs and hides first if I go in the room. Thank goodness he doesn’t have to have any meds! He howls quite a bit — especially at night — and sometimes scratches as if he’s trying to get out of the room. But when I leave the door open (if I’m here to supervise) he never comes out. The others all rush in and kind of freak him out — Kabaka and the kittens growl at him.
Fudge desperately wants to make friends with the other cats and NONE of them are cooperating. I think the girls would get there but I’m nervous about letting him out at night (when he’d be more likely to explore). Murphy’s being such a jerk to Kabaka that I don’t want to stress everyone any further. Better he wait and be more keen to get out than to come out and get scared by a bully.
