Yesterday I posted about Truly. Truly's brother is Shiloh. When we rescued him, his leg was badly broken. My WONDERFUL blog readers jumped in and filled my Chip-In to help with Shiloh's surgery.
You'd never know now that he had that bad start physically. He walks, runs, and plays like nothing ever happened. His psychological scars are a little more obvious. Shiloh, his sister Truly, and another little cat (Autumn – her post tomorrow) were all living in a field near a creek in the middle of nowhere. We spent weeks trapping – Shiloh was the last of the three to be rescued. Whereas Truly came around pretty quickly, it took a little longer for Autumn to decide people were OK. Shiloh took the longest of all. He found ALL of his security in Autumn and Truly. After all, they were his only family before we rescued him. When the three moved into the cathouse, Truly and Autumn made great adjustments. Shiloh, however, was shy, shy, shy. He has recently started coming to me for attention which is new and a great improvement. But he is still skiddish at times and more shy than Autumn or his sister Truly. The cute thing is that he LOVES his sister. My hope is that Shiloh could be adopted WITH Truly. They would certainly make a magnificent pair in a wonderful home somewhere. Truly will shower her new human with attention; Shiloh would have the advantage of adjusting to a new home while having his security blanket (Truly) with him. He is a sweet cat – not aggressive in any way. But it is unlikely he will be adopted easily as he is the more introverted type. My guess is that he will have a longer-than-average adjustment period, but that might be reduced if he gets to go with his sister.
Please pass this along. Help me find the perfect home for Shiloh.
