One of our cats who is very shy went home and the adopters were concerned she didn’t like them. In her going home bag was Party Mix. We told the adopters to put some out and out came the cat! Eventually she took it out of their hands. Even though the treats were for the cat, it made the adopters feel very special.
Pictured is Tabitha. From her Petfinder profile: “Hello, my name is Tabitha. Let me tell you about myself. If I were a person, I would be a real “girly girl.” I would get manicures, highlight my hair and get massages. I would connect with friends on Facebook and love to go shopping. Well, as you know, I’m not a person. I’m a 6-year-old, sweet, easygoing feline who would do anything to be part of a family again. I have lots of love to give, so please come to meet me. Perhaps you will give me a chance to show you what a wonderful companion I could be. Oh, I almost forgot to mention that I am much prettier than my picture.” Meet Tabitha: https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/33582996/
