Alexander was born at the shelter and fostered in a private home. He has SKILLS and really knows how to play and interact with other cats. He's taught my black cat to play more nicely and has helped our tamed calico feral to become less skittish. What we didn't know is that he is probably part ragdoll. He goes totally limp when you pick him up and likes having his tummy combed.
That we have supplied a nice acre to roam on that comes complete with gophers to hunt, stumps to perch on and grass to slink through. And the food's ok, too.
