When you get to know some of the cats at the sanctuary, it’s hard to understand why they aren’t living in some nice home. With others, as nice as they may be, the sanctuary might be the best place for them.
From Leslie (originally published in The Love Blog in July 2009):
“Andy has a long history with RAPS. Before the sanctuary was built, Andy and his brother, Amos, had been fostered as kittens and then adopted to homes that didn’t prove permanent. The boys were among the earliest residents of the sanctuary 10 years ago, and Andy became our first notorious sprayer. That is why he is still living with us at the age of 13, even though he is a friendly lap cat.”
Andy’s allotted text on the gallery page is too short to be able to mention both of his special traits, so it just focuses on the more sociable one:
“Can I sit on your lap? Can I, can I?”
Andy is very fond of lap time. Here are a few pictures of him doing what he likes best (OK, one of the things):
