Hi! Duante, 4 Paws’ media relations coordinator, here, along with our development director, Kelly. We have a visitor this afternoon in the media relations office—it’s Chloe, one of the cats who lives in our office.
Chloe is no freeloader, however; she and her sister, Coconut, earn their stay as part of our staff! They’re brought in during the training process for dogs that are being sent to homes that also have pet cats. This means that if you have a feline family member, when you receive your 4 Paws service dog, it will not chase or bully, but will know how to live in harmony with your cat!
Chloe is a youthful, easygoing ten years old, very friendly, and by far the most talkative cat you’ll ever meet. She rarely comes down to this end of the facility to say hello, but today she surprised us.
After poking around for a bit, scratching her furry little face on the corners of my laptops, and curiously examining the computer mouse for any similarities to the real-life version, she determined that the press release I was working on needed some tweaking. She helped herself to the keyboard and pranced around on it for a few minutes, sniffed at the screen, nodded in approval, tossed her tail into the air, and sashayed back down the hall.
We are, as she frequently reminds us, honored by her presence.
