Pickles came to RAPS as a feral kitten. According to Leslie, he was “painfully shy” and resisted all her attempts to tame him.
It’s always hard (perhaps impossible) to predict when and even if a young feral will become tame, since it seems to vary so much from cat to cat. For Pickles, it took a while, but “somehow, years later, he decided to let people into his life.”
Now he’s a sweet, affable boy who welcomes petting from his human friends. Look for him in the tearoom or, on a warmer day, sunning himself out in the back yard.
