Gretel arrived at her new home in Oakland in February 2015. She was a little timid at first, getting used to her new home and to her new “brothers” Luke the Shepard mix dog and Anderson Cooper the Maine coon! Every week she gets more and more comfortable and now sleeps at night on the bed with the rest of the family! Her meow is more of a cute squeak and she loves to play. She’s a very friendly cat and approaches new visitors confidently and enthusiastically in the hopes of getting a head rub! Thanks to Tammy Rieser and Contra Costa Humane for introducing me to this beautiful and sweet kitty!!
