Cats that just say NO to adoption shows - meet Julie

See also

If you came to an adoption show to meet Julie, you’d see the back of a beautiful calico cat. That’s because Julie hates being at the shows. She will spend the entire time at the show with a pout on her face and her back to the public. If someone stops to talk to Julie, she is likely to turn around and hiss. This is not Julie’s normal behavior. Julie is a very social cat who loves to greet visitors in her foster home.

The adoption shows begin promptly at 11:00 Saturday morning. At 11:20, many of the cages at the show are still empty. On Saturday morning when it’s time to leave for the show, the cats just disappear. Frustrated fosters resort to camouflaging cat carriers Friday night and sneaking around Saturday morning. All efforts to fool the super-smart felines fail.

It’s a shame that people don’t get to see the “real” Julie at an adoption event. Her foster mom says that Julie doesn’t have a shy gene in her body. She gets along well with everyone she meets, human, canine and feline alike. In fact, Julie is often brought along to meet new dogs that are rescued. Julie has no fear of dogs and is therefore the perfect cat to see if a dog is cat friendly.

Besides being outgoing and friendly, Julie is a curious and playful cat. She is very active, and enjoys playing with the other cats in her foster home. She also likes “helping” her foster mom do chores around the house. According to her foster mom, her favorite chores are helping make the bed, folding the laundry, and helping clean dirty dishes in the sink.

Julie was born in June 2012, she is up-to-date on all her vaccinations, is spayed, microchipped and is litterbox trained. For more information about Julie, please visit Almost Home Foundation's website at www.almosthomefoundation.org or email cats@almosthomefoundation.org

You can also visit Julie at one of Almost Home Foundation's adoption shows. Just remember that you are not meeting the “real” Julie at the show.

Almost Home Foundation is an all-volunteer, registered, 501(c)3 charity organization dedicated to rescuing stray and abandoned dogs and cats. For more information, please visit their website at www.almosthomefoundation.org
