Nero: January 25, 2020 – The golden-eyed wildman.

“(Nero) “No-Socks” is a very dignified boy. He also loves to play and hunt toys, but he is not above letting his brother do all of the hard work. He does not seem to like the name he came to me with and I’ve been calling him bud or buddy. I’ve tried “Fester” out on him and he responded to that a few times.”

Nero (top) and his brother Chester (bottom, adopted): January 12, 2020. They are recharging for their next adventure.

“He likes being petted and getting attention, but he is more likely to snuggle up next to your legs than climb in your lap when he is settling down for a nap. His personality is very interesting, almost like he has a dry sense of humor. He makes me laugh. For a while, I wondered if he was simply tolerating Chester as he was the only other kitty in the room, but the more I spend time with them I see that he really likes hanging out with him and will also seek him out for snuggles or wrestling.
His full description can be found at: Tails from the Foster Kittens...”
