This guy is Joe...and indeed, he's a regular Joe...grounded and happy. He showed up at my colony, eager to connect, but frightened. After I was able to pick him up, I brought him home...what a love! Gets along with all the others, strong and healthy, (now) neutered, and ready for his own home.
So what's the amazing story, you ask? This guy was found in the middle of the street, taken on BART to Oakland and back, no carrier, safely, and on to me. The folks had to go to the County Building, and had no option but to take him with them. He would not go into a bag, not sure what they had, but he rode the screamingly noisy BART train there, weathered the admin nightmare, and made it back to their home, kids and all! THAT is a miracle.
When he got here, except for smelling of toxins, he was calm and collected, until he encountered another cat. I was afraid it might take some time for him to adjust (had he never been around other kittens??) He's over that now, and starting to throw his weight around! Love this guy. Named him Gary. He will be ready for a new home very soon!!
