Recently, a family came in looking for a black cat to adopt. That in and of itself is great! One of the volunteers took a tower out of walk-in #5, with shy Rio perched on top. She told Rio to give it a try (Rio usually did not come out to say hello to adopters, therefore making her adoption chances slim). But that day she proudly perched on top of her tower.
The woman came over and began petting her. And petting her….and petting her. They bonded instantly! Rio’s siblings and mom had all been adopted a while ago and she was the last one left. Even her “roommate,” a black kitty with hip issues, got adopted recently. It was her time and she found the perfect family.
We are so happy for Rio!
