Sometimes it takes a while to adjust to shelter life.
Imagine you are a cat.
Maybe you haven’t been out of your home for your entire life, except for vet visits. Suddenly your family is gone and you are in a strange new place surrounded by unfamiliar smells, cats, and the sound of dogs barking.
When this ten year old cat came to PAWS, he was very unhappy. The staff gave him the name “Señor Crankypants”.
After a few days, he learned that he was in a safe place with a lot of admirers. He is actually an easy-going playful guy who loves people and other cats.
Señor Crankypants is cranky no more. I hope his good humored personality and funny name will help him get adopted soon.
