Prior to JP’s stretch in animal control, where his new person Esther found him, this feline waif had already been through two homes. This good lady wanted to learn how she could give her new kitty the love he needed. He just wouldn’t let her touch him. Esther knew that being touched appropriately as a child would have brought her comfort and security. In some ways it can actually be easier to overcome our human challenges while caring for a wounded nonhuman.
