Two cats were appropriate, so I chose Bambi because she had been there for six months. I was actually even worried that Bambi would be put to sleep or get really sick if no one offered her a home. She was super scared of people, skinny, and definitely not eating enough. She had been in a hoarding situation, so she actually was very nice to other cats.
In my home, she was--and still is--very sweet to my other cats (licking them, not being aggressive, not demanding her own space, etc.). While she's still scared of people, she's not scared of me. She has a really nice, deep purr and is very happy to be alive in a peaceful, quiet home with lots of good cat food.
I really love to support animal rescue sites, in addition to adopting animals that are in need of a forever home.
