Description
Tux\'s story began last winter. We knew there was a cat somewhere on the property, we could see the little paw prints in the snow and the food left out was always eaten. Finally one day we actually saw him, or we at least assumed a him. The temperature was dropping and the weather went into a deep freeze, no sight of the cat for over 3 days, food untouched, we feared the worst. But then he was back! We were so relieved but knew we had to take steps to catch him and bring him into a warm place before he froze to death So we trapped him and he was terrified to say the least it broke our hearts. Here we are trying to help him and he doesn\'t understand, and is so scared. We finally got him set up in a quiet area, he was feral, but the hope was that he would soon learn to trust. Our first big step was him taking treats from me, that took a while but I knew we were heading in the right direction. Fast forward months later and now he is a totally different cat, he loves to be petted and looks for attention, he purrs so loud! He is happy and content and ready to find his forever home.

Tux would ideally but good with a quiet household, with either older children or adult home. Some experience with feral cats would be an asset, and clear understanding of cat body language, to his credit he is a good mouser!! But more important Tux has come such a long way from his life on the street to the warmth of a safe and secure place to live. Lets take him to the next step and help him find that purrrfect home he so deserves. Tux is about 2 years of age, neutered and vaccinated and of course mirochipped.
