Volunteer Role: Foster
What do you like best about Miles' personality? Every time I enter the room, Miles greets me with chirps and head bumps, requesting pets. He always comes back for more pets and doesn't seem to get enough. It's funny to imagine that this is the same cat that once was so incredibly shy when I first introduced him to my home that he hid under the sink for a day and a half before eating and drinking. Miles is very friendly to those that he trusts and loves to play by himself and with us through fishing poles.
What first drew you to your pick? The way he required my patience to open up. For the first few days, I gave him space and sat with him, at a distance, playing quiet music for cats and speaking softly. He surprised me one night by meowing and wanting me to pet him and our relationship has only gotten stronger since.
Is there something special about the way your pick looks? I love the way he wears his tuxedo.
What is his coolest/silliest/most unique trait? Two things: he loves showing off his belly (either by rolling around or getting belly rubs) AND persistently kneading the air.
Anything else that makes your pick particularly awesome? There's never a lonely moment with Miles. He's happy with watching TV shows with me or actively engaging with toys.
