Zack came to the RAPS cat sanctuary as a kitten in 2005. He remains a rather shy boy, but he's a nice one.
I met him recently when he was caged for balance problems (a recurring inner ear issue, I believe?) and a cold. At first, I wasn't sure if he was going to let me get close to him. He didn't seem entirely sure himself, so I approached slowly and quietly.
That seemed to be all he needed to feel comfortable enough with me to accept a pet or two. From there, it didn't take long before he was leaning into enjoy some proper head rubs. A nice boy indeed.
