Then, a Guardian Angel stepped in! A set of experienced foster parents agreed to take these two timid cats in and begin the long and tedious process of "taming" Mork and Mindy. They quickly discovered that the key was in the kibble-- Mindy is highly food motivated! After a mere 3 weeks of foster placement, Mindy had made tremendous progress. Her foster mommy says: "Mindy is progressing so well. She's comfortable being held (unless she wants to get down and explore). She's sitting relaxed in our laps at times. She's becoming more comfortable with the dogs, so she'll sit in our lap with the dog on the couch next to us. She's very comfortable loose in the room with us... She likes to explore and play. She likes a scratching post. We think the key to Mindy's progress is patience and food."
Even since that update, Mindy has become more and more of a lap cat. She needs a home of her own now!
Now, these cats desperately need a forever home. There is a chance of regression if she or Mork has to re-enter a shelter environment.
Our adoption process:
It is our goal to match each animal with the most compatible home, based on their personality and temperament. In order to do this we ask that all potential adopters fill out an adoption interview, as well as talk with a staff member about what they are looking for in a new pet. By doing this we can better match adoptee with an adopter. Resulting in forever homes!
