We received an email that began, "My ex husband is dying and has a cat that is unsocial in respect to letting people touch her and I think has been traumatized." Mary Jane's owner was dying and this 9 year old girl needed somewhere to go. She wasn't welcomed by the local shelter in Hot Springs, Arkansas due to her temperament. Her owner loved her and we were determined to help his passing by guaranteeing him and his family that she would have a loving and understanding place to land when the time came.
The call came in December 2021 and we made the 3 hour drive south to pick her up. It took all of our cat wrangling skills to catch and transport her safely. She was angry, confused and scared. Her whole world had been turned upside down. It's taken her a few weeks to decompress but by offering her lots of hiding spots, it has allowed her to follow our movements while feeling safe.
She's a beautiful girl with big green eyes. We can tell she desperately wants attention but is too scared to understand we mean her no harm. We're confident she will come around with lots of love and kindness (she is already rubbing against our legs!) . Temptation chicken treats are her weakness!
