Freddy had a rough start in life. He was found on the street as a young kitten and then lived in a cage for several years before he was connected with SICAW and brought to the Adoption Center. At the Adoption Center, Freddy learned to enjoy human contact, eagerly hand or head butting volunteers. With his endearing personality and adorable tuxedo looks, he quickly became a volunteer favorite! Freddy enjoyed playing too- but only from the comfort of his enclosure. His time in a cage had made him a bit agoraphobic.
Then, one eventful day… along comes Kara and Anthony. They were ready for adoption and wanted to give an older cat a home. They agonized over their decision; there was also another pair of cats (Lexi & Logan), that needed them. But, ultimately they felt a strong bond with Freddy and, decision made, they scooped him up and took him to his furever home.
Today Freddy is living the life! With his Meowmy’s love and patience, he is slowly learning to come out of the shadows and into the sunshine. He has a safe place where he can hide when he needs to, and loving pet parents who are ready to do what they can to make him feel safe and loved. This is easily one of our favorite adoption success stories. And, as an added bonus, Lexi & Logan were also adopted a week later. Karma?
