Fig is the prince of our household. He is the only one that is allowed to eat from everyone’s food bowls. His brothers let him get away with everything and he knows it. He loves giving kisses to humans, especially on noses. He is extremely gentle with humans, too.
In 2018, I was having a particularly rough time. There was a shelter near my work so right when I got off I went over there to spend time socializing kittens. As I was leaving I glanced over to a corner and saw him. Once we made eye contact something drew me to him. He had been there a month.
He had little sores on his hind legs, coccidia, a URI with conjunctivitis, ear mites, and was covered with fleas. I couldn’t leave him there. It was a rough couple of months trying to get him healthy. He was 100% worth it. At 9:24 PM he runs under our bed every day because he knows we’ll shut the bedroom door and he wants to cuddle one last time without sharing the humans with his brothers.
Bean is very shy, especially with new humans, but still sometimes he thinks even his cat dad is suddenly spooky. He is quiet but loves to play and jump around with his brothers. He always seeks Feesol out for a bath because he loves being doted on, and Feesol is happy to oblige. He is so incredibly sweet and gentle.
I follow some rescue groups on social media. I saw a post by Animal Rescue Carolina about a young stray tuxedo cat they caught that had to have one eye removed due to a severe illness. As soon as I saw his picture I knew I had to meet him. At the adoption event he was shy and wasn’t eager to meet me when I stuck my finger in his cage.
I was worried he would have a hard time finding a home, and I was in tears at the thought of leaving him there because he was obviously scared. So I took him home. Sometimes when Bean gets excited he’ll stand on his hind legs until I put my hands out for him to rest his paws on. Then he’ll lift himself up and headbutt my chin while purring.
