He is adorable. I don’t know much about fostering, are you allowed to decide you want him to be yours – or is that a nono?

Wow, shouldn’t have read that at work because now I’m all teary eyed! What a fighter! I am so thankful kitty parents like you are able to help out like this. I wouldn’t be able to give him back, but that’s why SO won’t let me be a foster momma. He said we’re at our cat max right now (2 in our apt). What a sweetie pie! And, seriously, I can’t believe anyone would do that to an animal. πŸ™

FOSTER FAILURE!!!  lol!  Our foster cat has a very husky meow…she doesn’t make a lot of noise, except at feeding time.

Your poor boy…I can’t believe people can be so cruel!  Just goes to show that not everyone who adopts/tries to adopt from shelters have the best intentions.

So keep him! I would.

Did the shelter ever find out if the people who adopted him as a kitten were the ones who abused him? Or did he perhaps get lost or rehomed somewhere along the line? I just can’t imagine someone adopting an animal solely to abuse them, but I know it does happen πŸ™

I’m crying at work.  Should have listened to the warning.

He sounds like the sweetest little baby.  Are you allowed to keep him?  You should definitly keep him.  He deserves to be loved for a lifetime after everything he went through.  poor baby.

I want to find the people who did this and work on them with a hammer! Seriously, who does something like that?! This makes me so angry! Yell

I’m glad he is with you now! And that he hasn’t lost trust in humans altogether!  I hope you can keep him.

What a sweet kitty!

I’m pretty sure one of our adopted kitties was mistreated — she flinches every time a hand is raised near her (for petting only, of course) and was really shy and scared when we first brought her home. It’s been so nice seeing her come out of her shell and she’s really a loving kitty now.

Oh, that breaks my heart. I don’t know how people can be so cruel, it’s just sick. You can see how amazing animals are, though, that he’s still able to love after all he’s been through. I have an adorable little orange cat that I adopted from a rescue organization. He’s been through some tough times, too, he has some scar tissue on one of his eyes and I’m not really sure how much he can see out of it, but he is the most playful, loving little guy ever! He will sit on anyone’s lap. It’s awesome how resilient these little kitties are. I say keep him if you can! It sounds like you are providing him with a wonderful home and he deserves so much good after all he’s been through.

Animal abuse breaks my heart. My aunt just adopted a cat who she is pretty sure was abused. The shelter people practically begged her to take him because he’d been returned 3 TIMES! Can you believe that? She’s had cats all her life though and she is very patient. He’s been with her for about 9 months and is getting much better, but she thinks something happened to him having to do with doors. He cowers away when she opens a door and it takes him a long time to enter a room through the doorway. More often than not he stays in an open area, like the hallway. He didn’t do anything but hide for 6 months but now he’ll sit near her on the couch if she doesn’t seek him out. I think it’s amazing that she took him in considering how skittish he is, I love to see animals who had a bad start get a second chance!
