Around this time in 2008 I was asked to foster a kitten named Akita. Oddly this was also the same time George Henry started coming around.
Anyway flash forward to about a year ago. I had seen Akita at the same animal shelter (no kill). I had asked about him and they said he would be a permanent resident. Apparently he was adopted out but it didn't work out. He hid and they brought him back. I kept thinking about him.
I put in an application to adopt him a week or two ago. A lady from ARF called me back and asked me if I was sure because Akita is "weird." I told her I had fostered him with a bad eye infection and he was ok here.
Last Saturday I went to pick him up to foster him for 2 weeks. So far so good. Poor Miley is dying to get close to him but he doesn't trust her yet. Miley just wants to play and Akita doesn't trust her yet. The great thing about him is that he's use to being around multiple cats so he is very friendly with the other cats here. They are not always feeling his love but no fights. Just some unhappy looks, flat ears and very confused faces.
He looks like a mess because he had matted fur on his sides so I took scissors to the mats and cut them out. He could care less. Hope to have some pics up on a day or two.
