A year or two ago, I was at the end of my rope with the cat we had taken into our home. He was an “option” we decided to keep for our niece who moved far away. We’ve always had pets and thought this would be a “no brainer”. Hah. He was a very different personality cat than we had ever had. It was initially awful, and then simply got worse. He went from hiding in the laundry room sink all day to staying upstairs and using our bed for a litter box more than once. Not a good idea; everyone was at their wit’s end. We realized he was stressed, but it was just so far out of our comfort zone to have a pet in such distress that we called MEOW to schedule a “re-location”. Instead, you helped with some ideas and plans for trying to make it work. Patience, second (and third) litter boxes, and other information helped us to keep our vision of a complete family with happy pets in the forefront.
At this holiday time, I simply want to tell you “thank you”. Today, Squeakers is a steadfast member of our family and now will stand with the dog for the Christmas photo, sleep with us or near the dog, uses only one litter box, and appears comfortable and strong in his place in this second home. While we didn’t get our cat from you, your services kept our house cat from having yet another transition in his life. For that, we are grateful. Many thanks, and happy holidays, Jody and Gregg Gustafson
