This is Jupiter, one of my kitties.  We got him and his brother Neptune from Operation Kindness, a rescue shelter.  When we first saw them, they were at the the back of their cage, eyes wide, hissing at us.  When we adopted them we put them in a room separate from the other kitties, and they immediately ran under the bed.  They hid under the bed for weeks. Neptune was the first one to venture out when we were in the room and after a few weeks, he would let us pet him. He is so loving and happy to see us. Jupiter took several more weeks before he would even show himself; he still had his collar on so we could hear the jingle, jingle under the bed. He will now let us pet him most days, but we still can't pick him up - it's been 4 years. But he is happy, so all is good!
