Colour: DSH Orange & White Tabby
Born Approx: April 22, 2022
Gender: Neutered Male (microchipped)
A curious home owner (who happens to be a PAW foster-provider) asked her neighbours why they were boarding up around the bottom of their backyard shed. The answer was that they were “tired of mother cats giving birth under it”. With all the nailing and hammering, apparently the most recent mother cat had bolted, along with all her kittens but one. That one (Peanut) was rescued almost immediately (and quickly adopted). A few weeks later, the remaining three kittens were trapped but sadly their orange mom was never captured. The three remaining kittens are the ‘Nuts’: Hazel, Cashew and Brazil. Hazel and Cashew have been adopted.
With orange tabby fur that almost shimmers, Brazil is a reserved young mancat. He’s shy, it’s true, but with patience and time, he WILL come around. It may start at meal-time, when he will twist that long, lean body of his around your legs. That’s may be when you can first pet him; that will be the beginning of trust. Play-time is another opportunity to show Brazil that you are his friend. In his foster-home, he was initially afraid of the toys, but he watched other cats having fun, and learned that it was all right to take a chance. He enjoys long strokes down his back and likes face-rubs. At times, he is so happy about being petted that he drools – a sign that a cat is experiencing a little bit of Heaven. We know he is seeking people to whom he can give his trust. It’s happened in his foster-home, and it will happen again.
With most cats, Brazil is a comfortable and comforting brother-type. In his foster-home, he curls up with a much older cat, and snuggles with a kitten. He even tolerates youngsters playing with that long tail of his. With many felines, he’s an easy-going, accepting fellow.
While we think Brazil will get along with an active, playful resident cat, he’d love to be adopted with one of his pals from the foster-home, especially Miss Chiff who sees him as an older sibling.
Yes, Brazil may take a bit to win over, but with a patient and loving human, a feline chum for games and cuddling, a couple of snug spots to snooze in and from which to watch the birds, and, of course, plenty of good food, this strong and lithe fellow will think himself blessed indeed.
