Sox is an older guy, about 6 or 7 years old. When he was found, his face was swollen and bloody, and he had some broken teeth. He was so ill, that at first we thought he had been poisoned. He is healthy now, but whatever happened to him has made him very, very timid and shy. He does take a long time to warm up to people.
If you are willing to be patient and gentle with him, and gain his trust, he will reward you by being an affectionate cat who is talkative when you talk to him, loves to be combed, will lay on his back to have his belly rubbed, and follow you around like a puppy.
He gets along with other cats, but he is extremely submissive and should be around older cats. He is afraid of dogs.
