I adopted Hugh last fall after my roommate and her cat moved out. Kenway (another AWS alum) was lonely so I hoped to get him a new friend. While Hugh was shy and skittish, I knew in my heart they would be friends. After several months of integration, they are finally playing and resting together! Hugh is a very affectionate young man who loves nibbling fingers and curling on me. While he snores and drools, nobody seems to mind. (It’s those jingle balls in the middle of the night that we mind! Haha) I am so thankful for the volunteer at AWS who had to strongly coerce Hugh to leave his bed, and I know Hugh is appreciative as well!
