Juniper is a very relaxed little roly poly — and that was even true when he was abandoned. We found him waiting patiently at a feeding area for feral cats that we were in the process of trapping to have neutered. When the trap was placed on the ground Juniper calmly walked in and sat down, happy to be headed home, this time forever.
Juniper is one of the very lucky extremely few. Most cats left to fend for themselves very quickly die from accident or starvation. Many succumb to exposure and disease. And there are those who die horribly as victims of sick and criminal people.
