Regular

abandoned cat update: he’s comfortable enough to come down from the backyard wall (very briefly though) and he actually rolled over and exposed his belly!!! amazing! he still won’t let me touch him…he gets very close like he wants to be pet but he rubs his head on the ground, loses his balance and gets scared immediately. I brought a cardboard box from work for him to climb into and i’m hoping it’ll calm him down a bit
