Over 10 years old when she entered the shelter, Coral was fearful and wary. After the two years it took to earn her trust, she’s now a lap cat, showing us that with love and time anything is possible!

At a year-old and not socialized when she got to the shelter, at Cat Town Cafe Sunday transformed into a playful lap cat and is now in her new home.

When we first met Buttercup as a tweenie kitten, we were more afraid of her than she was of us. At Cat Town Cafe, she blossomed into a confident lap cat and found a great home.
