Archie is in the same situation. He was originally returned, because his previous owner (for many years) moved out of the country and could no longer care for him. He, too, is neutered and vaccinated, but he doesn’t do well in a household with other cats. He was adopted by a single woman, who did not know much about cats, and couldn’t handle his “meowing” in the mornings. Clearly, this person has no previous experience with a cat or else she would know that this is quite normal behavior. Placing a small bowl of food out for him in the mornings would probably have remedied the situation. Alas, she opted to give him back to us, which we encourage all our adoption parents to do if things are not working out.
As many people know, the adult cats are always the hardest ones to place for adoption. So many who are looking to own a pet seem to be drawn to the small, cute, cuddly kittens and understandably so. Over the past couple of months we have noticed these two growing more and more depressed. They are both the type of cats who WANT and NEED a loving place to call home. They are both extremely affectionate, and although we give them as much love and attention as we can, it simply does not compare to the constant warmth and kindness they could have if they were taken into someone’s family. Please share their story with your friends and family. Please contact Advanced Animal Care of Mt. Pleasant for more details on our adoption process.
