My name is Danny and I’m looking for a home. I have a place I’m crashing right now, and I really like the two-legger that feeds me, but there’s this other cat that is a bit of a bully. I end up hiding until the danger is gone. Same when the two-legger brings over other two-leggers. I’ve started to have a peek at them, but they’re all big and scary looking, so no thanks. Under the bed is safe. I’ve been here for a year and I’m kind of comfy, but I’m mostly looking for a bully-free zone. I probably won’t trust you for a week at least, but if you feed me, I’ll probably let you rub my belly. Don’t try carrying me, though. That’s not cool. I mean, we all like some affection, but I’m not a toy. So, to sum it up, I’m slow to trust others, but once I do, I’m quite affectionate and I’m still young enough to like to play. Give me a little corner of your toast and it’s game on! I would prefer a fairly quiet home, though. This cat does not like surprises.
One of the best times in fostering is when you get a shy cat or dog, and they eventually start to like you. Sometimes it takes a day, sometimes it takes months, but it is so rewarding. With Danny, I can pet him (and he loves it), but no one else can yet (and it’s been awhile). If you adopt Danny, you will get to experience this transformation for yourself. He’d do best in a very quiet home that doesn’t have too many hiding spots. At first, he’ll stay under the bed, but if you keep bringing him food, he’ll venture closer and closer, and you’ll eventually have a loving, but awkward friend. He’s awkward in that he’s not sure what he’s supposed to do when being petted. He bumped noses with a calm, older dog the other day, but cats tend to not like him much, through no fault of his own. As soon as they hiss, he hides. He does have a lot of love to give to someone calm and patient, though. Are you that person?
Danny likes to be mysterious. Possibly because even Danny doesn’t quite understand Danny, it’s hard to tell. Only Danny knows about his history, and he’s not telling. He started foster life awhile ago, and he found a nice desk to hide behind, and had no real intention of leaving (other than for food and bathroom breaks). After a time, his normally smarter foster parent decided that maybe other cats would help him out of his shell. Instead, Danny ended up living in the crawlspace. Again, he’d come out to use the bathroom and to eat. New foster dog comes along and eventually discovers there is this other foster cat that lives in the crawlspace, and really wanted to play with him. Unfortunately, Danny thought this was pretty terrifying, and retreated further. Then the resident cats got tired of this and would occasionally try to get in his face to ask what the problem was. Again, Danny didn’t like this. After a few aborted rescue missions, Danny was
finally nabbed by the foster parent in dramatic fashion. Now Danny is safe in his own bedroom, and has taken to visiting the foster person if they bring him food. Sometimes, foster parent will pet him, and he doesn’t really know what to do, but he knows it feels oddly good. Danny would probably be better in a home without many animals, and maybe somewhere with places to hide, but not places where he can hide too well. He is coming around, but he’d like a new start!
