When adoptions go wrong, it can be difficult for us to piece together exactly what happened. Poor Pickles was adopted from Tabby’s Place a few years back. We don’t know why, but her adopters gave her away to another family. What happened with the second family is anyone’s guess, but we do know that Pickles was found as a stray by a third family. Out of the goodness of their hearts, the third family took Pickles to a vet, and through her microchip, the vet was able to establish that she was a Tabby’s Place cat, so she was returned to us. I’m going to go off track here for a moment, to remind everyone that Tabby’s Place has an open-ended return policy. If you adopt any cat from us, you can always return that cat if the adoption is not working out; it doesn’t matter whether the feline has been with you for ten days or ten years, and it doesn’t matter if you have the best of reasons or no reason at all.
But back to Pickles. Despite her misadventures with people, she’s a thoroughly easy-going, very sweet girl, on the large side for a female, When you first see her, you immediately think “brown tabby”—but look more closely; there’s orange in that coat, too, so she’s really a torbie. We believe Pickles was born in the spring of 2007, and she’s healthy as far as we can tell. We also think she’s had quite enough of the outdoor life, so she MUST LIVE INDOORS ONLY.
We know that Miss Pickles would do well in a wide variety of homes; all she needs is a chance with someone who will love her the way she deserves to be loved. Could that be you?
