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
