Gradually, the cat learns to conquer her fears following her rescue.
Members of Best Friends Felines rescued Callista , a female calico captured by the pound and destined for euthanasia. Initially paralyzed upon her arrival at the shelter, she began to appreciate the cuddles of humans, then gradually gave them her trust.
The cat took a long time to make its place within the body. Volunteers described her as “ scared ” because everything around her made her anxious. She constantly hissed and kicked at anyone who tried to approach her. Besides, his peers were not welcome at his side. She preferred to stay alone.
Callista felt bad psychologically and physically. Her teeth hurt and she was very thin. For days, well-wishers tried to get him to regain weight. With veterinary treatment and the right food, she slowly recovered.
At the same time, a host family volunteered to give him a home. Callista was still having trouble adjusting to indoor life, but was making great progress. She sometimes managed to relax, showing glimpses of her beautiful personality to her relay owners: “ She is a brave, loving and gentle girl once she begins to come out of her shell, ” testified a spokesperson for the association.
Callista surprised everyone
Shelter staff shared the feline’s story and many people came forward to adopt her. Among them, Anneke had the perfect profile. She officially became Callista ‘s owner for life . The latter has adapted surprisingly well to her new home, as if she understood that she was at home now.
She even accepted the other cat in the household, even though she had always shown animosity towards her fellow cats. The furball just needed to be in the right place to open.
