|Capilano and Katie|
Capilano came to the sanctuary approximately two years ago with a group if #5 road cats. He initially was placed in another part of the sanctuary but refused to come out from behind his towel curtain and hissed ferociously anytime anyone came near. It seems as though he was having a miserable time. Evidently, hissing and hiding don't burn many calories as Capilano put a lot of weight on during this time. Eventually he was moved to the back pens where he begun to come out of his shell and interact with his pen-mates.
Although he still isn't much interested in people he does look quite content with his cat buddies. It is interesting to see how a change in environment can change a cat's manner. From ferocious hissing to tolerating a photo-op, I have to wonder how well we think we know cats sometimes and how different they might be in the right circumstances.
