Mancat Monday - a Dilemma
Mom has a big dilemma in our shelter - Albert the white deaf cat is picking on poor Woody, a sweet tabby boy. Woody is very submissive and hides or runs from Al. Al does not know how to socialize with us other cats - he was probably taken from his mom and siblings too soon. We don't know anything about his early weeks. He seems to pick out the most timid ones and stalks them like prey!!! Things have heated up a bit between him and Woody.
Anyway Woody is hiding under or behind a chair all the time. Mom makes sure he gets love and food but what kind of life is this? He does love his brothers Norm and Sam and likes to be with them and Snowball. We can bring him inside the house but the cats in there don't know Woody and he may hide under something in the house too -and Mom won't be able to find him!!!! What to do???
On the other hand, Woody may like being in the house - he has never been in one before and may make friends with the other kitties and have a fun time. We have to ponder this - any suggestions or ideas are welcome.
