My son adopted Reggie as an older kitten from a shelter in Sacramento. They've lived together for about a year. However my son's job transferred to Michigan and he had to relocate quickly so now I have Reggie. I can't keep him long term though.
Reggie is on the scared cat side a bit and will be out of site under something at first. But given some time he will come out and eventually be around and sit in your lap etc. It takes time but he gets there. He's adorable, but shy.
