It’ll make you shed a little tear. This is about a dog but it could be about any creature really. Certainly the same reaction and effect can be seen in the domestic cat. OK the type of behavior that a cat displays when scared will be somewhat different but the reason behind that behavior will be the same and the cure will be the same as well.
As you will see in the video Edie was about to be euthanised at a shelter. Until someone really nice and caring had another idea.
I am sure Elisa sees similar things. And I know Elisa is one of those life saving, caring people.
Scared dogs and cats present difficult behavior to shelter employees. They become difficult to handle and probably fail the loosely applied tests as to whether the cat or dog is adoptable. A fail means death.
Yet, sometimes, most times, all they need is a hug….
