In the summer of 2016 a handsome tuxedo stray was picked up near Steveston Highway. With no tattoo and no chip, he was held at the Shelter for possible claiming, and ultimately for adoption. But wonderful as the work is at the Shelter, it’s a high-stress place for some of the more highly-strung inhabitants – and Romeo was one of them. Too much action, too many noises – he took it out on the cats around him when he was allowed out, and ended up having to be moved from one room to another to avoid other alpha cats, Finally he began expressing his feelings in pee, and reluctantly the Shelter staff had to accept that he was unlikely to be adopted, and he was brought to the Sanctuary.
