Scared And Sweet Adopted Kitten Discovering New Home (Viral Imgur Thread)

It's never easy to bring a new kitten home. All you want is for the kitten to be happy and cozy and understand that you mean it no harm. Sometimes, it takes a while for the kitten to discover and get used to its new home. But eventually, they see the loving adoptive parents that we are and give us a chance

Such is the story of Melfi, MickDuncher's adoptive kitten. For a whole week, she hid in the bedroom and didn't leave, scared of her new environment full of new humans and animals. But now, she's a happy girl, and we're happier for it.

Shelters Report Not Having Any Animals Left To Adopt

It may be the best thing to come out of 2020! The animal shelters in the Washington area are experiencing a rare and unique occurrence... the amount of dogs available for adoption is increasingly limited! Thanks to the mess of 2020 and everyone pretty much forced to stay at home for a majority of the year, people turned to adoption as a source of comfort and meaning. 

Cindy Sharpley, founder, and director of Last Chance Animal Rescue, a nonprofit animal shelter in Waldorf, had this to say about the rare phenomenon, "We thought people would stop adopting because they would need to conserve their money, but that hasn't happened. It's been just the opposite. They're going like hotcakes. We can hardly keep them in stock."

Another animal shelter, Lucky Dog Animal Rescue in Arlington said it's expecting to end 2020 by helping around 3,385 pets find their forever home! The year prior, they were about to help about 1,800 find homes. Shelter Animals Count, which runs a database and is able to track all the shelter and rescue activities reported that 26,000 more pet adoptions in 2020 than the year before. This number comes from about 500 rescue organizations across the country.

There has been such a demand for animals, that shelters across the country simply do not have enough animals to keep up with this increasing demand.

Mirah Horowitz, executive director of Lucky Dog, had to make some changes to keep up with the demand, and that meant moving the operation online! Horowitz told Washington Post, "Anyone who felt like, 'I can't adopt an animal because I'm at work all day' is now finding they're at home. People want a pet for companionship and to give kids a sense of responsibility and a playmate."

Here are a few people who adopted during these uncertain times and their new forever soulmates:

Making friends is never easy, especially when you're an introvert, but even more especially when you're an introverted cat who is scared of many, many things. Still, Zoom the cat is the official proof that even if it's not easy, everyone can make friends.

At first, this youtuber tried to get the cat to settle and calm down, to get used to its new environment, but after a while of that not working, he decided to let Zoom go. Only lo and behold, Zoom returned to Walter's backyard, probably for food but maybe also because he knew he'd be taken care of and loved there. Not only that, but after a little while, Zoom has made a friend, and now they can be two little mischief makers together.
