Changing Lives One Cat at a Time

Posted by Furkids | Wednesday, April 24th

The small black cat crouched in fear at the back of the intake cage, hissing and growling, swiping at any hand that came close. Her ears were pinned back and her eyes were wide as she puffed herself up to seem larger and more fearsome. What adopter could possibly want to take her home?

Jump ahead just seven weeks: the same cat rests calmly in her bed watching people bustling about. She sniffs at hands that are extended to her and lifts her head to receive petting. She rolls over and fearlessly exposes her belly. She gently nibbles a treat from the fingers of a visitor, purring softly.

What brought about this remarkable true transformation? The Purrkids program! Purrkids volunteers work one-on-one with shy, scared, timid, aggressive, and under-socialized cats to help them become more adoptable. Purrkids volunteers change these kitties lives in profound and lasting ways. The work can be difficult and results can be slow, but it's incredibly rewarding to watch a frightened cat learn...
