Former feral Hissy Fit Jones is still, at heart, a homeless cat.
Though he’s been an inside only cat since about 4 months old (he’ll be 9 years come next spring), he never fully acclimated to the domestic lifestyle as did Little Girl who was also born to a feral mama.
Don’t get me wrong. He does love affection- on his terms. Those terms usually involve me lying down and his rooting some other cat out of the way so he can lie on top of me and let me scratch his head and neck. Oh, and his chin. He loves to have his chin scratched.
But if I try to show a bit of affection to Mr. Hiss in the daytime, this is what I’ll see.
Oh, my dear sweet Hissy Fit Jones. If only you’d trust me.
