7. Elliot Ness or Ellie is the perfect name for a feral kitty!

I am sorry I am not able to foster. First off, I am not longer agile enough to deal with small kitties. That is why this time we adopted grown cats, even with their problems. Second, once a cat is in my household, I would not be able to give it up even if it was going to a good home.

Of course the third reason we adopted adult cats is that they are harder for the Humane Society to adopt out. Maya had been in their cat cafe for ten months. She was not spooky but does not like petting from strangers. She would just ignore the people and go and hide in the litter box room most of the time.

I don't think they realized how traumatized Sabra was - she had been found as a kitten in a wheel well, fostered until she was well and old enough to adopt. Someone adopted her, kept her a month or so, then dumped her at the door of the cat cafe without even talking to the staff. During that adoption she was not treated well, judging by how she acts now.

Since she had been in the cat cafe before, they put her back after she cleared her checkup. She hid all the time and was not happy to be in a room where people were there all day, wanting to pet the kitties. The personnel at the cat cafe were very happy she was going to a nice, quiet home and that we were willing to take on a cat we might see on the rare occasion.

I need to call them and let them know how great Sabra is doing!
