You all know that one of the things that we are trying to do here at The Cat Cafe is to find homes for our adoptable cats. And today, that happened! It was definitely a bittersweet moment, especially because the cat who was adopted definitely pulled on everyone’s heartstrings right away.
We are sad that Butterball, who I called the sweetest member of the Fab Five, has left The Cat Cafe but we are very happy that he has a forever home!
When Butterball came to us, the notes said that he was a shy cat. That definitely was not the case at The Cat Cafe. I’m so glad that we had a chance to let him come out of his shell and show his loving personality.
And I know he’s going to a very good home, too. The couple who adopted Butterball first came in to see him early in the week. One of them discovered that their allergies kicked in. Even though they loved Butterball, they decided that they would think things over so that they could be sure it would work.
This couple contacted me today, and were kind enough to understand that with the rush we were dealing with, we weren’t going to be able to handle adoptions until later. So we set up an appointment.
But I got a call after we were closed telling me they wanted to adopt Butterball right away. They were so determined to bring him home that they told me they would pay a premium and that they would help us clean up The Cat Cafe if it meant that Butterball could go home with them.
Of course, I turned down the premium, and the offer of help cleaning. After all, one of the goals at The Cat Cafe is to find homes for adoptable cats, so I had to make it happen.
You don’t have to be as determined as the couple who adopted Butterball to bring one of our adoptable cats home. You just have to be willing to fill out a little paperwork and write a check to the San Diego Humane Society.
Which cat will you be taking home?
