I'm pretty sure he was neutered. At first he just stood there staring at me, which kind of scared me, because his face looks a little, well, evil? But then I nelt down and put my hand to him so he could smell me first, and then I petted his head. He meowed a lot too. But anyways, then I sat down and he kept rubbing up against me and meowing, and I just kept petting him. He rolled over, and it looked like he wanted me to rub his tummy, I tried, but he didnt like it and got back up. I dont think his tail motions were wanting me to get away, because of how he liked to be petted and kept rubbing up against me. But, I cant see how he could like me so much already when I just met him. His tail was straight up, which means their happy I'm pretty sure, and it was vibrating, so that gave me another hint he wasnt going to be mean to me when I would pet him. He just has a mean looking face that looks like he wants to attack you, but hes a sweet boy inside. My cousin had to give up her pit bull yesterday, he was sooo cute and nice!!, because they had to be out of their house today, and they were moving in with us, and we already have 2 dogs, so my mom didnt want another dog in the house, and especially a big dog. My dad wants my cousin to get it down to one cat. One cat to the pound, or a home, and one could stay with us. We all like ray the best, since Shadow hides and never comes out, and will attack anybody but my cousin. But, I think its kinda mean to get rid of Shadow just because he likes to hide, or hes mean. What do you think? I think were probably going to end up keeping both of them though.
