Update October 16: I know that a shy cat like me isn’t for everyone, but I’m really hoping that someone out there is up for the challenge! I still have a hard time in certain situations and likely my early life as a feral cat will always be a part of who I am. I sometimes get startled if I’m approached to be petted or picked up, but I love to cuddle on my own terms! I hop into bed for cuddles every night and I love to snuggle with my foster mom on the couch. When I approach you to cuddle (which I do often!) I let my guard down completely and I’m happy to be picked up. I even enjoy a tummy rub!  I’m a gentle and sweet boy who just needs a bit of patience. I’d probably do best in a quiet home with another confident cat to play with. I’m very popular with all the other cats who have come and gone while I’ve been in my foster home. My foster mom loves me, but she wants me to find a home of my own where I can settle in for good.

Update Feb 25: I just wanted to let everyone know that I’m getting much better and you almost wouldn’t know I was ever feral! I never turn down pets from my foster mom now, and when she approaches me I’m not scared at all, I even lift up my head to rub on her hands! I don’t even mind being carried around! I’m enjoying living with the other cats, I really love every cat I meet so would love to have a cat buddy (and if you don’t have one I have a brother, Spice, who I’d love to be adopted with!). I’m very happy to have been rescued by the nice people who found me and to get the chance to live my life as an inside cat in a nice warm home! How could I not learn to love people after they’ve all been so kind to me!

Hello, my name is Boots! I was rescued along with my brother from a feral cat colony and we are now staying with the same foster family. I have come a long way thanks to a lot of patience from my foster mom, but I still need some work. I am slow to trust and need to be given my space, but if I am in the right mood I might just let you pet me. I love a good ear scratch when I am eating my supper and will sometimes play with a feather wand. I get along very well with the other cat in the house and she is helping me learn to trust my foster parents, she seems to love them so maybe I could too- it might be nice if I got to go to a home with another cat. If you have patience and lots of love to give please consider giving me a forever home, I may take some work but I promise it will be worth it!
