Re: Cats--progress note

Seamus is the youngest stray I've ever taken in.  He was about 5 months old
when he wandered in.  He doesn't care to be held, is usually off by
himself - often outdoors, more so than the others, even in the dead of
winter.  If I sit still on a cold evening I'll have the other 4 cats laying
on me at one time or another, but never Seamus.  Once in a great while he'll
hop into bed with me and lay so I can rub his tummy, pits, and chin, but if
I stop, he's off.

My take is that he was a kitten born to an outside cat, never held, and
adopted out.  Didn't understand people and escaped.  He even runs from me
when I come into a room, like I'm a cat-murderer.  He can be fun and sweet
in his own way though.  They are all special in their own way.
