  • Story

    Turtle is a lovely boy who is happiest when he is socializing with the other cats in the home, and he has made great progress in his trusting of people! He is very easygoing and wants nothing more than a warm place to curl up, some fun toys to play with, his favorite wet food and treats once in a while! He has moments where he is very playful, showing that there is still some frisky kitten in there somewhere, despite his size! He will curl up to sleep with any of the cats that will let him, but the majority of the time can be found curled up with Lotus. These two came in together and I believe he makes her feel safe, like a big brother!

    Turtle came to me pretty shut down with no desire to have any interaction with people at all. He has come such a long way and will occasionally flop over for pets and scratches now if you catch him at the right time! He does tend to get mats in his beautiful long hair, but he has finally started to enjoy being brushed and letting me work on getting them out for him, however he will let you know when he has had enough by ever so politely just sneaking away! He is alright with my small dogs, they don’t seem to phase him at all. Turtle has the kindest soul which you can see through his beautiful soft eyes and with time and patience in his new home will show you the kind hearted boy that he is!
