Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Uhm...hi. My name is Higgins. They call me a "shy boy" here. And I am, to be honest with you. It's not that I mind people, I just haven't been around them much. I came from a hoarding home and the people here helped save me, which was pretty cool. But still scary. I lived with 50-some other cats so this whole environment has been a big change for me. It hasn't been too bad, though, since three of my other friends came with me and the nice people here gave us a whole room to play in. I think I'm ready to go to a home now, but I'm still a little nervous about it. All four of us kitties made a pact that at least two of us would go together when we left, and the shelter people said they'll do it for us. So when I leave, I need to leave with one of my friends: Kramer, Lydia, or Tribbiani. We're looking for someplace quiet to live with a patient owner with lots of love. Do you think you can do that for us?
