We were packing up after an adoption show at PetCo when we noticed a shopping cart with a cat carrier in it. When we opened the carrier, we found a tiny orange cat curled up in a back corner. She was literally frozen with fear. A store employee said the shopping cart and carrier had been there since the night before. Peaches was too traumatized to go to our shelter, so she went to a foster home instead. The foster home soon became her forever home. Years later, she's still very shy but happy.
