Here we've got another cautious cat on our hands. I've persuaded him to approach me and sniff my hand, but not much more than that. He rejected all of my attempts at petting and and scratching. He is a bit of a rugged animal, I believe his reluctance to human contact might have something to do with the fact that part of his tail has gone missing. There is a hard nub of bone at the end of his tail, indicating that it was not a clean cut . . . very traumatic to imagine.
Doesn't he resemble a miniature panther?
