   Leave a treat for Chano

Scaredy Cat, Tripod

Quick Bio:
-mixed breed-three legger-part feral
-cat rescue

Quiet, People I know and trust

Loud noises, Strangers, New puppy in house

Favorite Toy:
Those little glittery balls and anything with feathers

On the sunny bedroom window ledge where I can watch birdies.

Favorite Food:
Any food is good, I kind of like the special food Bubba gets...but don't tell his mom!

I move very fast and jump very well for a cat with 3 legs.


Arrival Story:
(Chano got a little shy and said I could tell his story;) Chano came into the veterinary clinic I work at as a feral kitten someone found by a dumpster. One of his front legs was infected and hanging weird. The veterinarian found it would be best to amputate his leg. I found out about him the day after his surgery. I spoke with the local animal shelter and said I was willing to foster him. My family took him in and worked on getting him used to people. It took him a long time to trust any of us. He bonded very closely to my sister Janet. After a family discussion, we decided it would be too rough on him to have to learn to trust a new family and he found his forever home with us. He still hides out most of the time, but has slowly gotten used to our routines. The rest of us are starting to see him come out more and more, but if anyone comes over or stays the night....he pretty much stays hidden. It is a special treat for our guests to be able to get a glimpse of him.

Chano is now trying to figure out how to play. We had another cat named Dibbs who we were hoping would teach Chano how to play, but we lost Dibbs this past January. Bubba is not much into teaching a young thing how to play, but they have had little meowing sessions and sniffed noses. Bubba, however, will come running and protect Chano if Porter starts to investigate where Chano may be hiding. Everybody will back down to Bubba when he is in his "In-Charge" mode.
