This week’s Shelter Volunteer spotlight is focused on the new moon and the Chinese new year tomorrow. It’s a time of auspicious new beginnings and I hope some wonderful new homes for shelter cats.
Our foster gal Princess Nou Nou is indulged in a good way (okay, maybe a little spoiled). There is lots of love, communication, play and environmental enrichment. She’s a very quirky but bright Gemini who thrives on variety. She sometimes has a raw breakfast in bed and rotates between several sleeping spots. Having spent seven months caged in a windowless room, it took her a while to understand windows and how to to climb. She now likes sit in a south facing window but won’t climb any higher three feet, so far. She’s a natural Cinderella but she has two sisters who are not so lucky. But luck can change in a twitch of a whisker with something as small a sharing this post or images.
Nou Nou’s other sister Vanna is at least out of cage living in the New Rochelle Humane Society large cage-free room. She’s come a long way and is getting friendlier but will need a quieter home and a patient person. I believe she and Uma can turn around just as nicely in time. None are bonded with each other and can be adopted separately.
The jumbo-sized boy has been named and it’s Buddha as in Buddha belly. The sweetest boy I’ve met in ages at the shelter is on a diet and will need a home where his weight loss will be monitored. Here’s his Petfinder profile
