Hi! My name is Hildy, but the wonderful ladies at the Contra Costa Humane Society knew me as Sophie. I came to them in August, after trying out two other homes. I can be a little temperamental sometimes, and I was starting to think maybe I would never find my forever home. That was okay, though. The women at the Humane Society got to know me, took wonderful care of me and grew to love me.

In March, I finally found my person and my forever home. The woman who adopted had been thinking about adopting a cat for months and visited several adoption fairs and reviewed thousands of pet profiles online. She says that when she saw my picture and read my profile, she just knew that I was her cat. We met at the Humane Society office, where she was warned that sometimes I bite and I might not adjust well to living wit her roommate’s dog. While she was getting the scoop, I crawled into her pet carrier and never came out. I wasn’t going to let her get away!

It’s April now, and I have been in my new home for a month! Life couldn’t be better! I love to watch the squirrel’s and birds play outside the windows, or relax in my cat tunnel. I’m a big fan of Real Housewives and Dancing with the Stars, and although she knows she shouldn’t, my person sometimes shares her favorite goldfish crackers with me. I love to play in the sink and help out with laundry. I still bite sometimes, but it is usually when I’m feeling playful or affectionate, and I get along just fine with the dog. I love my person so much, and I know she loves me!

I’m so grateful to the wonderful staff and volunteers at the Humane Society for never giving up on, and for trusting my person to take me into her home. They made me feel loved and safe until I could find my forever home!
