Happy Endings!!! “I started fostering Sueanne last March for a much needed cage break. She was very shy, and mostly hid for the first week or so of being with us. She wanted to be around people, but wasn’t too sure how to behave in such an open setting.
Over the weeks, Sueanne really started to adjust to being in our home. About a month into fostering Sueanne, a nice family put in an application for a cat whose personality matched Sueanne perfectly! I took her in for a meet and greet, however, she was terrified. Being back at the adoption center was very unsettling for her. She had spent the past ten months in different adoption centers, and must have thought we were putting her back.
The family that came to meet her were understanding, but decided on a different cat instead. I felt awful, and only wanted the best home for Sueanne.

All she wants is a warm bed, and someone to pet her. I’m so happy to have this silly little girl in my
