The “Let Me Purrsuade You” program was designed for those felines whose true purrsonalities often don’t show in the shelter environment, but emerge once they are in a loving home. Shelter environments can be stressful for cats that are timid, older, anxious, not fond of other animals or set in their ways. In a shelter environment, such cats will often shut down or act out.
The MCSPCA understands that it can be difficult for an adopter to make a connection with a cat who won’t come out of his/her hidey bed or says hello to his/her potential new family by hissing and swatting at them. The LMPY program gives the kitty candidate a chance to bond with their new potential forever family at his/her own pace and in the comfort of a loving home.
Through the LMPY program, the adopter gets to take the cat home on a 2-month “trial” basis. The MCSPCA maintains “ownership” of the kitty in order to provide close ongoing support. At any point during those 2 months, the LMPY parent can decide to make the adoption official. If the LMPY parent chooses not to adopt, we have still gained valuable experience about how that cat was in a home. It’s a win-win either way!!
