When we adopted Salvador, we wanted him to have a fresh start, so we gave him the new name Kona. He was extremely shy and skittish and would cower under the bed or the couch at first. It took a few weeks before either of us was able to touch him at all.
It has taken awhile, but he’s now the most wonderful companion – comes up to us for pets, loves tummy rubs, and has even allowed a couple of kisses on the top of his head. He improves and becomes more comfortable every day. We’re sure it won’t be long before he’s sleeping on the bed with us and our other cat, Parker.
We shudder to imagine what he went through on the streets his first two years and we’re so happy that MEOW was able to save him. He’s a wonderful addition to our family.
