My mom and I wanted to get a cat and when we found Louie on this web site we knew he was the one. We had to go camping for a week so my mom called his foster home and explained to her that we really liked him and thought that he would be the right cat for us. We were so happy that she understood but she said that if someone came and was a good match she could not hold him for us. Luckily we were able to work it out and get him that week to bring him home. After we got back from camping we went and got him and brought him home. He was shy and hid under my bed for 2-3 days and now he will come out and visit when he feels safe. And he sometimes rubs on the toddler.
