Pigletto is a gorgeous boy who is, unfortunately, afraid of his own shadow. We don't think that he will ever be a lap cat but, who knows; given enough time and patience, he might end up that way. He has been in foster care for about a month now and will now let me get close to him but I have yet to be able to touch him. He has the most beautiful coat that reminds me of a fox. He loves to eat so, again, with time and patience (and a bunch of treats), we think he may come around. He is fine around other cats, it is people he is afraid of. Probably should not be in a home with small children that would chase him as that would probably push him further into his shell. He loves to play and will chase that laser light or jump for that feather toy for as long as you want.If you want a 'showpiece' cat, with good prospects, Pigletto is the cat for you.
