This is the story of Pearl


Pearl, a white short hair cat, was between 1 and 2 years old in April 2010. Pearl was surrendered to BCHS by her owner because she did not do well with other pets they brought into the house. With BCHS volunteers and visitors, Pearl was sociable, playful and very affectionate, loving to be petted and have her tummy rubbed. Several potential adoptors applied for Pearl and finally a match was made.

Following is an email received from the family who adopted Pearl:


Pearl wanted me to let you know that all is well here. I just completed and mailed the survey, but I wanted to share some of Pearl's photos. She is such a good girl and fits right into our family.

She had an ear infection early on, so that meant a trip to the vet right away. The vet said other than the ear, which was treated with some antibiotic ear gel, she is in great shape.

In the first and third photos she is looking out onto the deck where there is a bird feeder. We call it cat TV: the Bird Channel. In the second photo she is sitting with my husband. She rarely leaves any room that he is in, and they have become great buddies. He moved my ottoman over by the window so she can easily lay there to watch her favorite channel. It isn't where it belongs, but if it is for Pearl it is ok.

Thank you, again, for letting Pearl come to live with us. She is a jewel and we love her so.
