Arrival Story: Henry came out of the woods behind the animal hospital where I worked. He was only 5 weeks old and very timid. Before I could trap him an animal (racoon or opossum) took a bite out of his tail. He has a little knot on the tip of his tail now. It took a week to trap him, but once he was in my home he got along well with my other cats.
Bio: Henry is still very timid. I don't think he will change. He hides from strangers and he hides from me if he thinks I'm going to cut his nails, clean his ears, or brush him. He has to feel really safe before he will let me pet him and picking him up is out of the question. When I am able to corner him to do his nails, etc., he might growl but he has never bitten or scratched me.
