From the Foster:
This adorable white and orange kitty is Calvin and if you've got an available lap to snuggle in, he's your man!
When he first arrived he was terrified of everything and hid in the bathroom cabinet or behind the toilet. But after a few weeks, and bribing him with tuna, he started to come out of his shell and is now a very happy cat.
He absolutely LOVES to cuddle and be on your lap or laying next to you. He's not needy though - he's more than happy to just be around you even if you aren't giving him attention or petting him. He has silky soft fur and is happy to curl up like a little baby in your arms and even likes his stomach pet! If he's not in your lap, he's probably sunning himself at one of the windows or checking out what the birds are doing.
He plays really well with my resident cat. He follows her around at times and she teaches him how to play with toys. We had a dog stay with us for a few days and Calvin was scared at first but soon adjusted. I think he would love and get along really well with any friendly resident pets as long as he was given some time to get used to them. He's patient and not too in your face so I think he would also do well with pets that need other animals to respect their space.
He's had no problems adjusting to the litter box and shares it well with my resident cat. He's fairly quiet and I really only hear him meow when I'm getting his dinner ready.
He is still occasionally fearful around new or loud things, but the more things he experiences, the more his confidence grows. Adjusting from a scary life as a stray to life in my home took him a few weeks but now he adjusts to scary things typically within a few hours (like the dog visiting). Though I think really young children (toddlers especially) may be a little too loud and quick moving for him so he would probably prefer a home with no really young kids.
