Turnip is a very pretty, sweet soft boy. He is shy at first but once he trusts you, the inquisitive, well-mannered clever boy he truely is shines! He and his brother Errol had a rough start at life until they came into care with BFF at about 5 months old. Initially, he was very scared of humans but slowly he’s come to trust his foster family and they have been delighted to watch him come out of his shell. He loves a good game of ball and will carry the closest ball over to his foster mum to let her know with his big sweet eyes he would like it very much if she could throw it for him. He will chase after it and bring it back to repeat the activity till he wears himself out and and it’s been a fantastic way to build trust. He also loves playing with his toys or batting a ball around Errol when there is not trusted human to throw it for him. He also loves a good wrestle with his brother and a game of chase. He is very curious about people whilst still being wary but he is very intrigued by mugs and will insist on coming to sit beside you and investigating what is in said mug. He’s started accepting gentle pats on his terms which is incredible progress. Given how far he has progressed it would be fantastic for him to be able to continue his healing journey in his forever home with his forever family. Turnip needs someone who understands cats, that will take the time to invest in helping him overcome his fear and be patient as they slowly build his trust. He would be happiest if he could continue to live with his brother as they are the best of friends. He has already made so much progress in such a short time and he will only to continue to blossom into his true happy self in the right home.
