Richard is slowly coming out of his shell and becoming more brave.
Richard is really coming out of his shell and getting more comfortable. At first, he stayed in the spare bedroom at the foster home, checking things out cautiously. The foster family was gentle and hand-fed him to make sure he associated them with good things. Now, he comes out during meals and even enjoys some post-meal petting, purring away happily.
After meeting the other cats in the house, Richard is getting more confident and exploring more. He’s still a bit cautious about sudden movements, so it’s best to take things slow and be patient with him. He really wants to play and tries to get the other cats involved, but they’re not quite ready for it.
As he gets used to being outside his original room, he’s showing some interest in human food, probably because of his time as a stray. The foster family is helping him learn not to jump on kitchen surfaces during meals. Despite these small adjustments, Richard is a sweet and affectionate cat. Once he finishes settling in, he’s going to make a wonderful companion.
