Adoption Stories

We receive wonderful stories of TCHS alumni on a regular basis, and we want to offer our sincere thanks to all who take the time to share them with us. We are invested in each and every pet we care for, and we want the best for them!  This is why we do what we do. Why you give, volunteer, adopt, and encourage your friends and neighbors to do the same.

Cheese, now Brie

We all know someone who has fudged a little on their resume – and got the job anyway! (Not us, of course, but you know … people.) This adoption story is about a former “working cat” who promoted herself to housecat in no time!

First a quick PSA: Working cats are those who, for whatever reason, TCHS doesn’t believe would make good indoor-only cats. Some are truly feral and will never want human company. All working cats come spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and are “name your own price.” They are intending to patrol barns, garages, etc.

The cat known as “Cheese” got hired as a working kitty in mid-July 2023; she was renamed “Brie.” Well, Brie decided working outside was not for her, and she learned to make peace with her new feline roommates.

“The Feliway products have been a game-changer, and now our three adopted kitties are living together in harmony.”

Another PSA: TCHS sells Feliway in our Re-Tail Shoppe!

Brie is definitely an example of a working cat who had plenty of social skills; she also goes to show not all working cats are mousers:

“She spent one week in our barn that is full of critters, and she didn’t catch a damn thing. She failed hard.”

At least she won at catching a great family!

“The mathematical probability of a common cat doing exactly as it pleases is the one scientific absolute in the world.” Lynn M. Osband
