How Tink Found Her Furever
May 2021-June 2021
In May of this year, Tink was brought into the NYACC after being found in Brooklyn. Her face was bruised and it was reported that she’d fallen off a roof. Our founder, Patricia, fostered Tink from May 20th to June 25th. This is their story.
When Tink came, she was four weeks old and only 14 ounces. Initially, she was very scared, quiet and withdrawn. After a few days, she began to trust Patricia and became clingy. But after about three weeks of foster care, her personality began to show. She became curious, active and smart.
After 8 weeks in foster, we shared Tink’s photo on The Half Percent Project’s social media, as well as Patricia’s personal accounts and someone messaged that their son was interested in adopting Tink. When Tink met Justin, her new dad, it was love at first sight. He had experience with senior pets and loved animals.
When he came to pick her up, it was bittersweet because Tink had become part of Patricia’s family. But while it was sad to see her go, we know Tink’s story has a happy ending and we at the Half Percent Project are glad to have been part of it! Tink is now Noémie and is living a good life in her furever home.
