Yesterday, we adopted out two house panthers after they spent just one day at The Cat Cafe. I was excited about this, because black cats are the last ones to be adopted due to silly superstitions. Just think, with a black cat, you can wear black clothes because their fur will match.
It’s also difficult to adopt out senior cats. Most people adopt kittens. Only about 10 to 20 percent of all adoptions involve adult cats. And the percentage of senior cats who are adopted is even lower. This is really sad, and it’s one of the reasons why I was excited to get in a senior cat.
Emily is ten, but you’d never know it from the way she acts. And man, is she ever a friendly cat. You know how most cats give you head bonks if they like you? For Emily, that wasn’t good enough. Nope, Emily had to literally jump into you to give you a head bonk. It was adorable, and something you’d expect from a kitten, not a senior cat.
This is what the couple who decided they wanted to take Emily home saw and fell in love with. They had never seen her before, and they just had to take her home. Their only concern was how she would interact with other cats. Fortunately, Emily lived in a home with other cats and she was just fine with them. That was also the case during the day she spent at The Cat Cafe.
Because Emily is a senior cat, her adoption fee was $25. This was something her new pet parents were happy to pay. We filled out the paperwork, put Emily in a travel crate, and she left The Cat Cafe after less than 24 hours to go to her new home.
I’m so glad to have been a part of the adoptions of three cats who are more difficult to adopt out. Even better, I didn’t really get a chance to get attached to the ones who left since they were there for only a day. That made it a purely joyful moment, not a bittersweet one.
