This is Brazil, one of the ‘Nut’ kittens – though they are no longer kittens, being just over a year old. They were born outside and brought into the rescue-group to which I belong. His two brothers (Peanut and Cashew) and sister (Hazel) have been adopted, but Brazil has regressed somewhat in his socialisation. He will be coming to stay with me; I hope to welcome him tomorrow.
Brazil will of course remain in the library for a while until he comes to know me a bit, after which he will meet the resident beasts. He will pose rather more of a challenge than Percival and Dabney did, but I am confident that he will come around and eventually be ready for adoption.
(And on that subject, Percy’s adoption was finalised on Friday. Dabney is taking longer to be accepted by his feline roommate, but we are receiving constant updates on his progress and progress is indeed being made. The family who have him are doing everything right, have taken it slow, and Dabs and the other cat are starting to play. There is little doubt that he has found his home.)
