Cat Sanctuary


Meepos was trapped on Mitchell Island in Richmond. When he first arrived at the sanctuary in mid February, it was hard to tell whether he was feral or tame. Before long, though, he stopped leaving any doubt that he was indeed quite tame.

Now he’s gotten comfortable enough with us that he likes nothing more than to wriggle upside-down in his cat bed while getting his tummy rubbed.

I hear he could be a bit nippy at times when he first started allowing pats, but he might have gotten over this. So far I’ve had nothing but hand-holding and kisses from him, and the only claws he’s showed me are from kneading the air as he purrs.
