Review for Cats R Us Inc, Gambrills, MD, USA
Last year, after losing my last old timer cat of 20+ years, I was privileged to adopt a special needs cat from Cats R Us. He had been rescued from a hoarding situation and had spent most of his life in a cage before coming to Cats R Us. The volunteer who fostered him worked hard at calming his fears and socializing him. He was a tough case. Poor guy was as terrified as a feral cat, but they didn't give up. His first adoption failed as he was so scared he hid from his people . Cats R Us was willing to keep him as special needs if a home couldn't be found for him. I am sure he would have been euthanized in a kill shelter. I got lucky and the foster mom agreed to let me try on a probationary basis. Soon after I was allowed to adopt him. Deborah kept in touch with advice and encouragement. It has taken time and work, but he has turned into an affectionate, talkative kitty whose favorite activity is belly rubs. If he doesn't think he's getting enough attention or belly rubs, he lets me know!! He has gone from the Cowardly Lion to the Courageous Lion. THANK YOU Cats R Us and Deborah for giving us both a chance to become family.
