One day, a couple met a shelter cat who did nothing but hiss. Seemed the cat didn’t to be touched. However, one man took a chance on the little skittish kitten. After a few loving caresses, everything changed.
David shared the story with the people at Love Meow: “We saw him on the Humane society website. He looked kinda cute so we wanted to see him.
When we got in there, the 3-4 other people/couples were a little nervous of him because he hisses and growled. Not gonna lie, the lady and I were both like. Oh boy, a very social little guy.
I just decided to go for broke and picked the little gray guy up (physically see if he’d let me do that). He started purring after a couple pets so we brought him into an isolation room. He purred and got belly rubs from myself and my girlfriend.
He was noticeably skittish and didn’t want to play but definitely enjoyed the belly rubs. My girlfriend said, I really like him, and she’d be willing to try him out and give him a good home, about that time was when we got the photo op. He climbed up and left a boat load of his gray furs in my beard.”
“I think I was adopted,” David said.
“We brought him home next day and yeah… now he watched the Wild hockey games on my lap, and has been a really great cat, his orneriness is evident every single day with his hissing, but he is entirely bark and no bite.
10/10 would adopt Albus again.”
Sometimes all it takes is a few loving caresses.
