Ash

When feral mom Grace and her kittens arrived at the sanctuary, Ash was the scardiest cat among his scaredy cat siblings.

Leslie recalls the day they were vaccinated, when Ash was so frightened that he ran around behind where she knelt and climbed into her jacket to hide. In his mad flight, Ash didn't realize that Leslie, who he thought he was getting away from, was actually in the jacket with him.

Although Ash still has the odd brief "Eek!" moment if caught off guard by someone he doesn't know very well, he gets over it quickly. No more hiding in jackets for this boy. He's truly come a long way in the past year and a half. 

Ash has decided he quite likes people and very much enjoys being stroked. In fact, he seems to have gone from being the most timid of his siblings to being one of the most outgoing.
