Big Boy was abandoned in an apartment carport complex on SW Canyon Road near Beaverton. A sweet elderly woman fed him and several others there for several years until she was told my new management that she had to stop or risk being evicted. She couldn't stand the thought of her furry companions going hungry, so she called around looking for help and OCO came out with the gear to trap them up.
When Big Boy arrived at OCO, he behaved like feral. He did not talk to us, even though he is a Siamese, a huge snowshoe Siamese. And he took to the rafters immediately. He spent all of his time up there and wouldn't even come down to use the litter box. Instead he simply hung his rear over the side of a beam and let everything drop. We had to be careful we didn't wander around underneath whatever beam he happened to be hanging out on. Then, one day, while standing in front of the supply cabinet suiting up to start cleaning, Keni felt someone rub against her legs. When she looked down she saw it was Big Boy! And he allowed her to reach out and pet him!!!
Since that first touch, Big Boy has been friendly with most everyone. And, he loves the other cats, especially Ruby, a rolly-poly little fat Russian Blue girl. They sit together and take turns giving each other baths!
Update: ADOPTED from Felines First Rescue!
