Checkers Found Her Forever Home!

Checkers was taken to her new home last Saturday, January 10.  A few days later, her new mother called me and said that she was very shy and she didn't know if it was going to work out.  I explained that transitions take awhile and some cats take longer than others.  I urged her to give it another couple of days.

Thankfully, she took my advice.  Yesterday, she called me and said that Checkers was much better and they love her and want to keep her. Checkers sits on their laps and sleeps with them.  She is getting along well with their other "resident" cat.  They are going to finalize her adoption this week.

Checkers was trapped outside and I tamed her.  I didn't believe that she was fully tamed when she was adopted but I told the prospective adoptive parents that and they still wanted to try it.  I told them that basically, they would have to tame her the rest of the way.  I think it worked our well that they had to tame her the rest of the way because feral cats bond very strongly to one or two humans.  This way, they helped tame her and she will bond to them, too.
