Happy Tails: Tookie!
This is amazing! Volunteers who remember Tookie from her days at the Refuge know that she was about as feral as a cat can be. Look at her now!
If Tookie had ended up in a public shelter, she would have been labeled "unadoptable" and euthanized. Instead, she found a home with a patient and loving mom who has helped Tookie learn to enjoy life. Yay!
Her new mom writes:
"Ms. Took loves to be brushed. She is still very shy and it is easy to spook her, but when she sees her brush she meows and starts purring. I think we’ve bonded. :)
Even though Tookie only spent 46 days at the Goathouse, I give the Refuge credit for keeping her safe until I could bring her home. The few people still there who might remember her as the extremely cage-aggressive feral bobcat with a padlock on her cage door will truly appreciate how far she has come in accepting life with humans."
