Queen Cleopatra

Hello HSNY,

I am the woman who adopted a cat named Gina last Friday. 

I thought you might like an update on how she has adjusted to her new home, and I would appreciate it very much if you would kindly share this message with Bonnie, who handled our adoption.  I would just like to add that I considered this adoption like I would have one with a child, and it was so important that we found a cat that needed a home, and that would integrate nicely with our personalities.

I came in on a Sunday afternoon with my children, and Bonnie spent some time with us during the interview process.  I do not know how she did it, I would imagine that she has honed a gift of matching people and pets….she brought in one cat and one cat only, and she could not have made a better match!! I could not have wished for a better baby girl….she is and will be a HUGE part of our lives, and to this we are indebted to your staff and Bonnie especially.

We have given our cat another name, we call her Cleo, for Cleopatra, because she is our beautiful little queen.

When we took her home, she stayed under the sofas all of one hour and by the end of the evening she had the run of the house!

Her favorite spot is under a big wood table in the dining room, she loves lounging on the rug under there…in the evening she will sit with us on the couch, sprawling out comfortably while the 4 of us two-legged beings squeeze into the remaining space as to not disturb her highness!! LOL

I am including some photos so you can see what I mean…please share them, it means a lot that you see how happy Cleo is in her new home.

She is thriving!  Her coat is shiny and soft, and she hardly is shedding at all!  She seems very happy, she is so sweet and very friendly to all of our friends who stop by to meet our new addition.  All hail Cleopatra! LOL J

Thank you for all you and your staff do, every day, may it come back to you all in many blessings.

With warmest regards,

Cleo’s new family.
