Meet Buster - an adorable little ball of fire. Honestly, he's kind of a work in progress. You see, growing up, he never had enough positive human interaction. So now, in the adoption room, he cowers in the corner. When you do try to pet him, he will let out the loudest hiss to tell you that he is terrified. He's not mean - just under-socialized. So, here he is, this beautiful little kitten who needs somebody special. He will need experienced cat people, teens/adults who know how not to scare him, and he really does scare easily. Even other cats scare him, and would do best with polite cats or alone. Sometimes, he seems to like being pet, but then he ‘freaks' out and slaps your hand. He will need people who will give him TONS of time to adjust. They need to take it extremely slow to gain his trust. We really hope someone will come give this little baby a chance, because this is the best time for him to get socialized, while he's young. It just hurts your heart when you see such a scared little one, but we know that someone, - maybe you - have the knowledge, love and patience to help out our little Buster.
