Arrival Story:
I adopted Katy from the SPCA. She was transfered from another shelter because she had been there for several months. They thought a change of scenery might suit her and perhaps get her adopted. However, she didn't adjust to the noisier, busier shelter and began to shut down. She would sit in her cage and stare at the back wall. Eventually, she started to hiss at anyone who wanted to take her out of the cage. I began spending quite a bit of time with her and got her to come out of her shell for me but she still didn't like anyone else. There was a very slim chance that someone would see through her defenses and adopt her. I guess I eventually realized that we couldn't live without each other so I finally took her home.

It took Katy 5 months to come out of her hiding place in my house. Now she walks around like she owns the place. I think she is happy. She never stops purring.
