Australia – A young cat named PJ thought she was getting her happily-ever-after home when she was adopted from the Australian Animal Protection Society (AAPS).
But the joy of a new home was short-lived for the beautiful calico. It turns out that her new family was not committed to their new pet and decided to take her back to the shelter facility just 24 hours later with the intent to “swap” her out for a kitten.
Adding insult to injury, PJ had waited nearly 100 days to find a home…her new family had promised to be patient with her, and allow her time to settle in and adjust, but they were not as committed as they said they would be.
So now PJ is once again in a cage at the shelter…waiting for someone who will take a chance on her and let her settle in and blossom.
You can find PJ’s adoption profile at this link.
NOTE* we did not approve the adoption of a kitten* We wish we knew what is going through the minds of people who commit to adopting animals just to change their minds the next day. Sadly it happens much more commonly than you would think 😞 #animalshelter #adoptdontshop #sheltercat #catrescue #rescuecat #catadoption #animalrescue #melbourne #australia #adoptionisthebestoption

The shelter said, “we did not approve the adoption of a kitten* We wish we knew what is going through the minds of people who commit to adopting animals just to change their minds the next day.
