Staff at an animal shelter in North Carolina thought it would be difficult to find a new home for one of their residents. Still, a hilarious and unusual ad they create can make the job a breeze.
Perdita is a 4-year-old domestic shorthair cat and became a shelter resident after her owner passed away. It was clear from the start that he was difficult to manage. The first thing that doctors recommend in such cases is a medical diagnosis because cats often act because of some health problem or pain.
It turns out that he is perfectly healthy, and the reasons for his misbehavior lie elsewhere.
Finding a home was a top priority for him. Still, the crew decided not to sugarcoat things, but to make the ad as honest and straightforward as possible. We don’t know if they even meant to make it so funny.
Shelter staff posted the ad on Facebook.
An update soon followed.
People liked the ad even though it wasn’t very flattering, so the shelter soon posted an update that they were taking over 50 applications to find a suitable home for the grumpy cat. Perdita seems to either like or dislike attention. You can’t really say no to this cat.
People are convinced Perdita will find a good home
The ad amused most commenters, but some took a more serious approach, analyzing the situation the cat found itself in. He lost a man who cared for him all his life, lost his home where he lived quietly alone. Now he is in a completely new environment for him, surrounded by many animals that are quiet and calm. This is probably not the true personality that we are seeing. And it’s a common problem in shelters, especially for animals that have lived alone with a single owner. They may not conform to the shelter; They seem antisocial, and sometimes hostile. This prevents them from adapting, so they become even more isolated, and the vicious cycle continues.
Some people shared their stories of how they adopted such animals. After a short period, he turned out to be a very good companion, lively, and friendly. It is possible that the same is the case with Perdita.
