He and Olive were found in an outdoor colony of cats – including a mix of ferals, friendly strays, and indoor/outdoor cats from a hoarding case. He was young enough to begin being socialized and was brought to the Middletown pound. He was still extremely shy and came to the sanctuary for further progress!
Since he’s still been rather shy, our behavior manager is trying a “Fraidy to Friendly” behavior program with him. It’s a short course of intensive behavior work that could really jumpstart his comfort around other people in bigger spaces. If it works we can definitely try it on other shy kittens in the future!
