One of the most dedicated volunteers at The Great Kitty Rescue got to know Bramble better than anyone.
Dacia first met Bramble when she was assigned to Room 10, a room of “feral” cats. Dacia and the other caregivers soon found out that these cats were not feral at all; they were just traumatized and terrified after all they had been through.
Even Bramble whose cage sported a sign saying he was mean and untouchable.
I have seen first hand when a caregiver quickly labels a cat as “mean” or “vicious”. Yes, many of the most scared cats can come across as cats you cannot work with. But to label the, set a negative tone and turn your back on them is unforgivable.
Dacia ignored the sign and took a chance on Bramble with very positive results. In her own words, “This cat is NOT feral. He purred. He is scared and traumatized and it has been a long time since someone has been kind to this cat.”
Read Bramble’s and Dacia’s entire story and see how a little love and kindness can bring out the best in a cat, even a “Mean” one.
