Acquired: Rescue / shelter organization

Whisky is a feral rescue who I acquired when he was about 10 weeks old from the family who found them in the woods during a hike. I adore him and he is a great companion, but when stressed he likes to bite on my hand. He is extremely independent and we found out this summer only likes to socialize with me. My parents were here for a visit and he ignored them to the point of being rude, but he would jump in my lap and snuggle up while purring his heart out. He is a very vocal cat, which makes me think he has some Siamese or Abyssinian in him. During the month of October I do keep a keen eye on him, because black cats are known to disappear. Whisky is also a good hunter and keeps the rodent population down. On the whole I recommend adopting a rescue cat, but get them when they are young so you can ensure they are socialized with humans.
