Sandy and Pebble arrived at the sanctuary in March as feral kittens. RAPS worked to tame them, and now they will allow pats from visitors to their cage.
The pair still hasn’t quite got the hang of this whole comfortable-with-humans thing, and turns to hissing and hiding when the cage door is opened.
But there’s a note on the door saying not to be fooled by the hissing. And indeed it turns out that these kitties don’t mean it (much). Sandy stops hissing when touched and will tolerate pats, and Pebble’s hisses immediately turn to purrs and show off dances.
Note – the two were never really comfortable with human contact, and were released into pen 4 with the other ferals. Let’s see how they make out!
