Lynx came to us by way of one of Debbie's feeding sites, a tame and until very recently unneutered male. And, unfortunately, he has leukemia.
Though understandably uncertain of his new surroundings, Lynx shows promise as a very nice boy. He hasn't got to the point of seeking out attention yet, but does allow his human visitors to extend the hand of friendship and even given him a few strokes and chin tickles.
I, for one, can't wait to get to know him better.
Updated October 15, 2011: I sadly never did get a chance to know Lynx better, as we sadly lost him today.
Here's what Debbie posted about him on Facebook this afternoon:
Lynx came to live with us at the shelter a month ago. He was trapped at one of my feeding sites near the railroad tracks. His first vet trip (to be neutered and tested) determined that he had leukemia. He wasn't too sure about us at first, but turned out to be very cuddly and affectionate at the end. He left us having had a warm place to live, lots of food, and knowing he was loved. That is why we do what we do........
