I have heard volunteers and staff here say that one of the most rewarding parts of caring for us is when a terrified, even violent, kitty transforms through love and patience into the sweet soul that they were always destined to be but for the circumstances that life had thrown at them. I recently heard that I’m Exhibit A for such a metamorphosis. In my orientation condo I greeted well wishers with icy stares and hisses, and the prospect of reaching into the condo to pet me was not one that anyone really relished. However over weeks I got many slow reassuring blinks, lots of soothing and loving words, and especially delicious treats. My caregivers could see in my eyes that there was a gentle fellow deep within and they were right. I’m now out and about and just thriving. I’m described as a teddy bear in a cat suit. With my big wide face, white scalloped front feet, peaceful eyes, and black bull’s eye markings and striped necklace under a white bib it’s impossible to resist me. I’m still a bit shy but approach me quietly and you’ll find one of the most affectionate and appreciative cats you’ve ever met. I am kindness personified. I adore having fingernails run down my back from the top of my head to my tail and I arch my back and gaze adoringly up at my benefactor. It’s complete bliss or “kitty overload” as I call it. True to my namesake I’m one Super Cat. Please come visit and I think you’ll be glad that you did.
