Bert puts his whole body into being loved on! Petting him is a very active engagement, he's purring, squirming around, smashing his head into my hand while also trying to make sure his tummy gets rubbed all at the same time.
He's got so much personality! I could just sit and love on him for hours.
Seeing him adore the attention, I can't help but think of him living on the street and going without human touch. I'm so grateful to have rescued him and given him another chance at the good life. I still get the sense from him that he's super-grateful at this second chance.
Once more I've had to let him go back to his new home and once more, my heart is ouchy. This guy really took a bit piece of my heart in the year I got to foster him. Be well my Bert!!
