Twister is a healthy orange tabby whose name comes from his interesting physical condition: This creamsicle’s back legs turn inward at their joints and therefore, Twister cannot use his back feet. Nevertheless, he can walk and use the litter box on his own; he simply does not have the same house-panther mobility as his pal, Gogi, who was Twister’s buddy back at the rescue in Lebanon. Perhaps this is why Twister is a bit shy. Nonetheless, he is an absolute sweetheart and being around his buddy helps his confidence.
In the few months since his arrival, Twister has begun to come out of his shell. Having previously lived on the streets, he was likely an easy target for other cats and unkind humans. He seeks out cozy places to sleep and hide, such as hideaway beds or litter pans with high sides. He is still nervous around people and other cats due to his history, but he is slowly showing that there is a very affectionate and sweet cat underneath his nervous exterior. Once you gain his trust, he loves to curl up in laps and will purr up a storm. Twister is also a very vocal cat and loves to chirp at people, especially if they have food or treats. This little boy is a food fiend! When our volunteers carry trays of wet food during feeding times, he is known to chase them down across the room, all the while yelling at them to give him some food!
