Francois and his brother were abandoned one chilly night, left to sit in their carriers, hoping someone would find them. Luckily someone did, and they were brought to safety at Good Mews. Francois is a senior and to be abandoned like that is just heartbreaking. They were obviously in a home most, if not all, of their lives and they are a little terrified of their new surroundings.
For the first few months at the shelter, they were having a very hard time adjusting. They lived in an office, where it was quiet and away from all of the activity of the shelter. They stayed huddled under the desk most of the time. The volunteers spent a lot of time with them, helping them feel safe. Eventually they overcame their fear and were moved to the main shelter.
Francois took awhile to gain his confidence, but now he is out and about and is OK with people petting him. He loves other cats and is often snuggling with someone. Sadly, his brother passed away and he misses him very much. But Francois has made other friends at the shelter and enjoys hanging out with them. He is a very sweet boy that deserves a loving home. So if you are looking for a quiet, gentle cat, please come by and meet Francois!
