None, he is as sweet as can be.

He's not picky
I was working in a tiny little guard shack where I was watching the parking lot of the Post Office I worked in. It was a mail sorting plant with hundreds of employees, and cars were being stolen from the parking lot, so they put this little guard shack out over looking the parking lot, and one night, about 3am, I was sitting in the guard shack when I started hearing a "meow."
I got out and looked around and I couldn't see a cat anywhere, so I went back in to sit down and heard the meowing again, so I got out and looked but no cat. This happened a couple of more times, until finally I decided to look under the guard shack which was sitting on bricks, and there he was! There was this kitten, hunched up in the back, crying.
I tried to get him out but I couldn't reach that far, so I decided to go inside the plant, where there was a 24 hour cafeteria, and get some food to try to get him to come out from under the guard shack.
I bought a hotdog and broke it into small pieces and made a line with the pieces of hotdog starting from under the guard shack heading out to open space. He took the bait and started eating his way out. When he got to where I could reach him, I tried to grab him but I startled him and he turned around a bit my hand and I let go and back under the guard shack he went!
So I went and bought another hotdog and repeated the last process, and again he took the bait, only this time I waited until he was completely out from under the guard shacked, and I grabbed him!
I brought him into the guard shack and he hung out with me. He was as sweet as could be, sitting on my shoulder as if we were old friends.
When the next shift got off (they had to walk past me to get to their cars) I held him and tried to give him away to one of my co-workers leaving for the day....I already had a cat and wasn't looking for another...which was the same excuse everyone else used! No takers!
So, knowing I couldn't just leave him there, when it was time for me to go home I decided to take him with me, and we've been best buds ever since!
Hobo died in his sleep, by my side, on August 7, 2010. He will be missed dearly. He was truly my best friend in the world.
Sweetest Cat On Earth!
