This handsome devil is Romeo. About two years ago my dad and I found him on a rainy day in a Cracker Barrel parking lot, hiding under a bush. He was tiny, but there were no other cats in sight and no houses in the area. We found out later that he was just old enough to be away from his mother, his eyes had barely changed. He bit my father in the thumb, and then promptly went to sleep in my sweater. We already had three cats, and we weren't really looking for another one, but after finding out the local no-kill shelter was full, we took him home (although we kept him quarantined from the other pets). He was scared, and dad thought he might be feral, but I went in the room and mimicked a cat "slow-blink," and he immediately went from trying to hide from me to climbing in my lap. He got a clean bill of health from the vet, and after less than a day of trying to find him a home, we decided to keep him.
Now he's got three cat-siblings and his own little bed above the kitchen door, though he still hasn't mastered sleeping on laps.
