This patient little fellow has been living in Animal Welfare
League for over a year. That’s more than 400 days, and it’s
certainly 400 days too long to live without a family, so the
shelter’s staff came up with a brilliant adoption campaign
Champas the cat arrived at the Animal Welfare League (NSW,
Australia) back in December 2015. He was super shy, hiding in
the shelter’s corners and shadows, avoiding the slightest
interaction with anyone.
Since then, many animals were adopted, but people kept
passing Champas. The staff over at Animal Welfare League
decided to boost his adoption chances by making him socialize
more, so they assigned Champas as a feline receptionist,
working at the front desk.
This marked the beginning of a new era. Meeting more and more
people, Champas realized not all of them are bad. The kitty
grew to love shelter’s visitors and started purring for their
attention. Everyone knew, Champas was ready for a forever
home. The shelter came up with an adoption campaign for the
kitty, and 436 days after his arrival, Champas went home with
his new dad, 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.
