We adopted Terrance (name has stayed the same) on July 1st (he was at the shelter for almost a year) and he very quickly made himself at home. He has had no problem sticking up for himself against our other cat and large dog. He plays with them often and has even livened them up a bit, something they sorely needed! He enjoys checking in with everybody by tapping them and giving them a small chirp. So needless to say, he is an incredibly welcome addition to our family, and we are so thrilled we could give him a home!
