This time, the 'rescue lady' Janet that Mom and Dad work with (she is head of the rescue Mommy and Daddy now work with) called Mommy and Daddy yesterday. She told them that they have a volunteer who was 'fostering to adopt' a kitten she found. She had 2, but found a home for one. The other, she had been keeping, and was going to adopt, but it appears the little guy is giving her cats problems. She does not think he's 'suitable' for adoption because she believes he's 'anti-social'. She told Janet that he stalks her other cats, and she has to stay awake all night with him.
Now, he was bought to an adoption event once, and apparently tore up everything in his cage, not playing, but in a very destructive way.
Well, Mommy dug into the story. Apparently, he and his sister got a touch of rightworm, and this lady KEPT THEM IN A CAGE IN HER BASEMENT FOR 3 MONTHS!!!
Well, Mommy was furious. She said to Janet "Well, of course he's afraid and crazy in a cage. He must have been out of his mind with boredom. And then his sister, his only security, is adopted out without him? No security. And then, when he's trying to establish a normal order with her other cats, she thinks he's 'crazy'? I don't think he's the one thats crazy.
Daddy wisely agreed.
This lady was trying to find a 'Sanctuary' to send him to. Janet told her she couldn't do that, and that Mommy and Daddy were goint to take Calvin for a bit. The lady got very upset. She told Janet 'You don't know what he's doing to my life....he needs to be away from other cats."
Mommy was like 'Well, what he might need is to have other cats to be around, other boy cats to learn how to be with others...not carried around like an infant and scolded when he does cat things like climb to the top of the cat tree and chase others around.
And so, a little cat named Calvin will come to us on Friday. We don't know anything about him, except he's 6 months old. We do know he'll fit right in here.
and he'll have plenty of fur company.

Great job! Spot on Assessment! What in the world do people think? Ah well.
As the woman who gave him a try has other kitties and, most importantly, did not just put him out on the street we will not judge. Very few are as smart as you and your family. Meow
