Adopted as a not too social kitten, Penguin and his sister Parsnip lived in a furnished barn alongside their families home. When the family needed to downsize and move they weren’t able to bring Penguin and Parsnip along. The new homeowners tried to care for them initially, but discovered their caretaker was allergic and no longer able to. They had a temporary stay at a boarding facility before joining the Sanctuary in January.
Still quite wary of human hands, we have been working with Penguin to accept treats from a spoon and get pets during feedings. He has been making slow progress in this area and still getting used to interacting with people. He has also been enjoying the catio more often.
