Meet Sylvester!

Sylvester is in a foster home working on trusting people. This is what his foster home has to say about him:

Beginning of foster:
Sylvester was untrusting and frightened of everyone when he first arrived.  He allowed only a little petting before swatting.  We gave him his own room and he stayed in that room for the first several weeks before meeting our two 14 year old cats.  I spent a lot of time in that room with him, playing and sleeping.  He liked to cuddle but only for a few minutes and on his own terms.  He liked to have company for sure.
 
After several weeks:
Sylvester is allowed the freedom of the house although we make sure he is supervised when our cats are present.  He showed us that he could roll over when asked to FLIP-FLOP.  He met our other cats Maggie and Snuggles.  With Snuggles, who is very laid back and dominant, he is fine.  With Maggie, who is submissive and hisses at him, he is not tolerant.  He trusts me completely now but still can give a swat if he becomes scared.  This happened recently when family was visiting with their teenage children and their dog.  The dog chased Sylvester and he spent most of their week-long visit hiding under the bed in his room.  After they left and the house was quiet again he was ok. 
 
Favourite pastimes:
Sylvester's favourite toy is a laser.  He doesn't try to go outside but loves to sit on the railing in our screened sunporch and watch the world outside.  Sometimes he likes to be in his own space.  He is comfortable sitting beside me on the couch, on the desk when I'm working on the computer, under my feet when I'm working in the kitchen, following me everywhere.  He tolerates petting to a certain extent and also brushing.
 
Summary:
Sylvester is a very handsome boy who will do best in a quiet adult home with his own space and possibly another quiet cat.  He will need a patient owner who will allow him enough time to become trusting.
