on Feb 27th.
After her screaming,I had time for self- reflection. I figured out that I had been pushing her into my expectation and my pace. My goal of helping her was quick adjustment and got adopted soon. I wished that she play with other cats and volunteers well. But it didn’t happened to her easily. Therefore, I’ve accepted the fact that it could be a long run to help her adjustment and changed my goal to make her relax first.
For getting information on helping cat’s relaxation, I googled but it’s hard to find a way for a cat in SPCA. I thought many things and made three principle.
1. Listen to her and respect her opinion.
2. Go slow and give her a enough time.
3. Be patient and don’t push her.
First of all, releasing her anger and nervous is important. I remember the fact that music is effective for it. Therefore, I used one of my favorite musics that is especially effective to release my anger before.

Of course, she was really upset to me and growled at me when I visited her again on 27th. However, I did tried to make her relax. I sat in front her cage, open her cage, and just played this music through my IPhone. She stayed at the back of her cage but it’s fine.
