Happily Homed: Birdie (Coffee)

We have an #adoptionupdate from Claire, who adopted Coffee (now Birdie) in early January of this year.

Claire originally came to CCS to look at a different cat in Birdie’s room. She didn’t want a ‘nervous’ cat, but Birdie would not stop staring, and Claire decided she wanted to be a good home for her to come out of her shell.

Birdie has adjusted well, though she is still scared of loud noises, sudden movements and new people. However, her confidence grows each day. As the only pet, she has really opened up and isn’t afraid to get into mischief. Her favorites include stealing socks and attempting to climb photos on the walls!

She did great at her first vet visit and got a clean bill of health, too. She loves to eat any food, but is picky about treats. Her favorite toys are the mouse on a string and her pom pom balls. She started playing fetch (without being taught), and now plays fetch each night before bed. She loves cuddling, and will often demand that Claire lays on her back so that she can sleep on her chest tucked in her arm.

Claire says: “Birdie is a great cat, and as someone who didn’t want a ‘nervous’ cat at first, she’s really changed my mind about cats that may be shy in the shelter. I made a Tik Tok about adopting Birdie and giving nervous shelter cats a chance and it got almost 90k views, so she’s famous too! I’m so happy to have Birdie, she’s helped me in more ways than I’ve helped her, and I can’t wait to see what adventures we have together in the future.”
