On the tenth day of Catmas, our true loves gave to thee … Quinn
From time to time, we are approached by other rescues regarding a cat that requires additional work or for some reason isn’t thriving within their organization. In spring 2019, we received such a call about a cat who wasn’t responding well.
Arriving at the shelter to complete the transfer we found Quinn curled up into a ball in the back corner of the crate. He was more than not responding. Quinn had completely shut down and was unresponsive. This young male deserved a chance of leaving behind a world filled with fear and terror to live as a grateful happy fellow.
In the early days at his foster home, Quinn was extremely timid and fearful of his new surroundings. But given the time and space to get comfortable on his own timetable, Quinn slowly gained his bearings and came to accept he was in a safe place. The safer he felt, the more his confidence grew and the more interactive he has become. Quinn has a puppy-esque quality about him in that he wants to fit in or belong. This may contribute to Quinn’s ability to get along with cat-friendly dogs and self-assured cats. A doting teenager or parent would do well for his confidence too.
We’re astounded by how this playful with a bit of cheek fellow has blossomed into being his own self. In a nurturing home he will continue to be a lively member of the family.
Quinn has a lot of playing to catch up on. He put triple red circles around “toys” on his Christmas wish list. Anything mouse like, squeaky or flopping fish would be perfect. A tall cat stand would be most excellent too so he can watch over his kingdom from above.
