Half 12: Shadowing
Someday, Tinkerbelle and I received an e-mail from our native Pet Companions workplace asking if we’d thoughts being shadowed. We mentioned we might benefit from the alternative.
Being shadowed means having somebody come together with us on visits to observe what we do. Normally it’s somebody who aspires to have a remedy cat of their very own, or somebody new to Pet Companions who desires to see how we go about our displays. This time it was completely different. The beautiful woman that greeted us on the door was getting her diploma as a Cat Behaviorist, and a part of her project was to exit on actual calls and get to know what our remedy cats had been like.
Marci and I went on a number of visits to the assisted dwelling facility. She requested numerous questions, received to know Tinkerbelle, and even helped me carry Tinkerbelle from room to room. She loved the residents and appreciated the interactions that they had with Tink. I loved her enthusiastic firm and insights into cat habits. Tinkerbelle loved her pets. It was all win-win.
Marci went on to turn out to be one of many foremost cat behaviorists within the Portland Oregon space. We’re nonetheless good pals regardless that Tink has retired.
Tink served for 4 years as a registered Pet Companion Remedy Cat, visiting assisted dwelling amenities and hospice sufferers. Tink is now retired and dwelling the quiet life. Try her Fb web page at: https://www.fb.com/TinkerbelleTheTherapyCat/
