Although they are now in their loving forever home, Uno and Tres had a bumpy beginning. These darling litter mates originally came to CAT as kittens and were quickly adopted together. But after about 5 months in a home, they came back to CAT because they weren’t socializing well with the people who had adopted them. After that experience, it was clear that these two kittens would need some extra time to get comfortable around people.
CAT’s volunteer crew at the Tualatin Petco Adoption Center was up for the challenge! For the next 8 to 9 months, a number of volunteers spent time helping Uno and Tres feel safe with people. They were shown love and kindness from a group of people who took extra care to encourage the kittens to not just trust people, but to seek human attention too. Thanks to this special effort, both cats gained more confidence around people. When adopter Kerri decided to give these two their second chance in a home, volunteers came in to say a fond farewell to two cats who had won their hearts.
Uno and Tres have come a long way since their adoption by Kerri last year. She says, “They purr all the time and love to run through the house at warp speed… They both have silly habits that make me laugh.” And the best news? “I love them dearly.”
Stories like this are made possible through the hard work and loving care of CAT’s staff, volunteers, and the families who adopt from us.
