    Product - Carlos Maza @gaywonk Last week I adopted a very scared, anxious cat. Today he's sitting on my lap distracting me from editing. Meet Albert: 5:30 PM - Sep 10, 2021 - Twitter for iPhone 445 Retweets 40 Quote Tweets 15.3K Likes

    All we can ever hope for is our cats eventually getting used to us and and becoming this affectionate. Having a cat show you this much love is an honor and something to cherish. We are so happy for you and Albert and wish all new cat owners the same fate.

    Furniture - holographic mom @tansysoftee Replying to @gaywonk ahh! this give me hope for my foster cat. he's such a sweetie but has lived the entire past week in hiding

    While we are at it, we would like to thank all of you for adopting all of these nervous little guys, especially those of you who got warnings about their behavior beforehand. Not everyone would have adopted cats with behavioral issues, and we know that it's not easy to take care of them. So, thank you, truly, from the bottom of our hearts.

    Cat - roxyw CY @roxyw Replying to @gaywonk This is Primrose who I rehomed from my cousin where she was not living her best life. She was really anxious, distrustful. Now she's a love bug (and has always behaved well in my loving home). It's so rewarding! I can tell you are a good one, based on all those lovely plants too!
