'Single White Male' Cat Living at Shelter Over 400 Days Is Hired as Receptionist, Then Finally Adopted
Shy guy Champas was sitting in the shelter for over a year until the staff gave him a job
Champas is handsome with big, soulful eyes and a striking white coat, but he is also a bit shy at first.
This last trait was keeping him from getting noticed by potential adopters. While other cats would strut out to meet families coming through Animal Welfare League NSW, Champas stayed to the back of his cage, avoiding attention, reports Metro.
But the Australian shelter knew the feline, who had been at the rescue since December 2015, had a personality that anyone could love. Hoping to show it off, the staff decided to give the shy guy a job working at the front desk of the shelter as a receptionist.
At his post, Champas was able to greet everyone coming into the shelter, while still getting his own space. To become more available to all the cat moms and dads out there, the kitty started posing with signs describing all his winning attributes.
This little grass roots kitty campaign worked! Soon after moving into the office, Champas found a forever home with a man named Nathan.
