After Oliver – our elderly house cat - passed away, we found Stretch at the Carson shelter. Because he so closely resembled Oliver, we adopted him with the plan of making him our new house cat. After some recouping from an infection, Stretch turned into a feisty, playful cat that loves to play with strings and have his head and neck scratched. Stetchers turned out not to be the best house cat though – tearing open several of the prescription diet foods in the front lobby one night after hours. To keep this from happening again, we had to start kenneling him during the night and on weekends. Though the staff were sad to see him go, one of our receptionists finally took him home after he began to display signs of stress. Stretch has turned into a happy, loving, and affectionate cat since being in a real home! He loves to sit in windows and chirp at passing birds, sleep underneath the sofa cover, and playfully attack the legs of those that walk past him.
