Parker requires a gentle hand and a quiet demeanor. He was born in approximately 2014 and was brought to Best Friends with multiple puncture wounds from an unknown source. He is healing physically. He seems to understand that he is safe now, and if you approach him quietly and calmly, he adores attention. He enjoys chin and cheek rubs and will even purr and give you his belly when he gets comfortable. He's timid with other cats and mostly keeps to himself. Parker is a survivor, and he's becoming stronger for it. He will do well in a quiet home where he can continue learning to trust.
