Champas the cat arrived at the Animal Welfare League (NSW, Australia) back in December 2015. He was really timid, hiding in the shelter’s corners and shadows, avoiding the slightest interaction with anyone.
Since Champas’ coming, many fellow animals were adopted, but his chance remained thin. The staff over at Animal Welfare League decided to boost his adoption chances by making him socialize more, so Champas was assigned as a feline receptionist, greeting people from the front desk.
His life took a different turn. As Champas meet more and more people, he realized not all of them are bad. The kitty became friendlier to shelter’s visitors and started purring for their attention. That was when everyone knew Champas was ready for his forever home.
The campaign was a big success. 436 days after his arrival, Champas got adopted by his new hooman, Nathan. “To everyone who is wondering what happened to Champas the long term resident of Kemps Creek – he came home with me today, and after biting my hand, went straight to sleep,” Nathan said via Animals Welfare League.
