Cat Sanctuary


I met Roland at the same time I met Nadia. While Nadia remained shy throughout the encounter, Roland was skittish and a bit swatty but willing to give me a try.

Roland and Nadia

In his youth, Roland was apparently more than just a bit swatty. Ann describes him as the meanest kitten she ever met. Leslie says he was “an unpredictable teenager who was sometimes nice, but not always.” His behavior earned him the nickname “Juvie” for his juvenile-delinquent-like behavior.

These days his interactions with humans are much more positive. Although a little uncertain about an quick movements by strangers, he enjoys being petted. And, if you’ve got something for him to play with (even a simple stick will do), you’ll have his complete attention.
