Scaredy cat to love bug... an adorable adoption story
Shiloh the kitty looked like she had a rough past... but this human had her believing again.
When this human found her at the shelter, she immediately felt a connection, even though Shiloh waz absolutely terrified of her surroundings.
“She spent most of the first month with me hiding under the bed and running anytime I got close to her,” said reddit user yokj6. “This little girl is the biggest scaredy cat ever. She flinches away from lovins and runs and hides if you even sneeze. Her tail has been broken, but she’s a survivor.”
Her broken tail and her fear of humans made some think she might haz had an abusive past.
The morning after adoption: “She looks tired, and continues to flinch away when I try to pet her, although she is leaning into the lovins and purring after a few seconds.”
But three months later, Shiloh finally turned it around.
“As I was going through all the pictures I’ve taken of her… I cried a little bit just thinking about how absolutely terrified of me she used to be, and how huge of a change there has been in her. I’m so happy I took a chance and adopted her.”
“Now, she greets me at the door and cuddles on my lap while I watch Netflix.”
She even loves her big brother!
She now iz the biggest love bug, and just loves her new family.
Love, and a little patience, can go a long long way.
Good for you, Shiloh. Enjoy your new family! Hazah!
