Sweet Pearl was found with her sister, abandoned outside of Bideawee’s Wantagh facility. The older of the two, Pearl probably spent even longer on the streets and without human socialization. Like her sister, she is very frightened of people and spends much of her time hiding. Oddly enough, Pearl allows more handling than her sister does, and we have even been able to pet and medicate her. She is also responding well to the staff and volunteers’ patient efforts to help her come out of her shell. In fact, Pearl is now a volunteer favorite, and will gently eat treats from their hands. It’s amazing what a little love and patience can do, and your sponsorship of kitties like Pearl and her sister Georgi Girl make these beautiful transitions possible.
