[Tweet “NYC area #AdorableAdoptables #cats rare Snowshoe at new Rochelle Humane Society @catwisdom101 @petxprt”]
Shelter adoptions rise and fall but there are always happy surprises. Chili, Armstrong, Pretty, Honeybee, Brandi, Alvin and Rightie may not mean anything to you but it means a fresh start for each of these recently adopted cats at New Rochelle Humane Society.
It’s no surprise when young, gorgeous cats get adopted but it’s a special thrill when the less adoptables find homes. Honeybee, Armstrong are from the hoarder group. Pretty, the more than pretty, large tabby who roamed the back room always made a beeline for me. I’d give her a pat but I needed to work with the hoarder cats in cages. Miss Sociable would insist: Look at me. I’m a big girl but I need a home too!
The cat adoption that made my heart soar to the moon was Rightie. He arrived as a young cat in 2008, six long years ago. He’s nine now and may he enjoy at another nine years of life in his happy, forever home.
Hoarding cats can be super #adorableAdoptables
Since a couple of the back room cats were adopted, I wanted to see how the remaining cats reacted, specifically Pa, the old hoarder boy and formerly bonded with Babe. I think he missed Honeybee but happy to hang with the guys like Ivan. He’s progressed nicely and sat in my lap, a first. For anyone concerned about adopting a hoarder cat, don’t be. They are all fully vetted and while some may take longer to adjust to their new home, most will like purr in gratitude.
You’d never think this gorgeous rare breed Snowshoe was rescued from a hoarder, but Kenai was. He’s made slow but steady progress over two months and finally felt ready to leave his cage voluntarily. He has a gentle, quiet spirit and ready to blossom fully in a foster or forever home. He’s our weekly feature. Please share his adoption graphic.
There are so many incredible Tuxies available I’m reposting this Tuxie adoption PSA. Check out some other others New Rochelle Humane Society but there are others not listed so ask! Some are from hoarding situation but most aren’t.
