"He's already eating out of my hand": But the animal shelter won't let the cat Marlon go after viewing the apartment

A woman from Friedberg wants to take in the cat Marlon from the animal shelter.

But the animal shelter in Rödgen puts in a veto.

Therefore, the animal placement failed.

Bad Nauheim – A woman from Friedberg wants to get a cat from the animal shelter.

But after an employee inspects the apartment, the mediation is rejected.

That caused a conflict.

If you want an animal from an animal shelter, in most cases you have to prove that you can offer the animal a suitable home.

Therefore, employees of the animal shelters often visit the potential pet owners, look at the apartment and use numerous factors to evaluate whether it is a suitable home for animals, as reported by fnp.de.

In Bad Nauheim, such a mediation process recently led to a conflict - after the animal keeper of the Rödgener animal home decided that the chosen cat would not be adopted.

When is an animal adopted from the animal shelter and when not?

In the case of a hangover, there was a conflict between a woman from Friedberg and the Wetterau animal shelter in Rödgen.

Cat is waiting to be mediated – he has been in the shelter since an apartment was cleared

Ingilt Böhm wrote to the WZ editors about this.

As she reports, she had seen the cat Marlon in the newspaper in the section "We are looking for a new home".

It said: »Marlon, a neutered cat born around 2016, is looking for a home where he can first settle in in peace.

Marlon was secured during an eviction and taken to the shelter.”

Because of the events, he was still very disturbed and withdrew from the employees.

"Since Marlon has apparently not had many good experiences with people so far, the team at the Wetterau animal shelter in Bad Nauheim-Rödgen is looking for an experienced and patient cat home for him." .

Ingilt Böhm writes: »After the death of my beloved cat, I visited the six-year-old tomcat Marlon at the Wetterau animal shelter in Rödgen.« And: »I fell in love with Marlon immediately.

I guess it's mutual, because Marlon comes to me as soon as I call him, he's already eating out of my hand."

Placement of tomcat Marlon fails after a visit to an animal shelter employee

She visited him at the animal shelter five times and was looking forward to being able to take him in soon.

“But after an animal shelter worker visited my home, she refused to let me have Marlon.

The reason given is that everything is so built up for me, I live in a new development area in Friedberg.« Yes, says Böhm: »I've been living with cats for 40 years, and all of them have reached a proud age.

I can provide Marlon with a good, cat-friendly, comfortable home, certainly better than he has at the shelter.”

She understands and thinks it's okay "that you check exactly who you leave an animal to".

But that's precisely why, she says, "I don't understand why they don't want to give me Marlon."

Animal shelter Wetterau: "The conditions on site do not suit this animal."

According to the animal shelter, the non-mediation has nothing to do with Böhm and her home itself.

It's just down to the tomcat selected by Böhm: "The house is suitable for cats," says animal keeper Regina McGee, who was with Böhm for the preliminary inspection.

»But for Marlon, this explicitly shy cat, the area is not suitable.

There are houses everywhere to the left and right.”

It is also a playground where children play.

Marlon the cat, on the other hand, needs a quiet area "with the opportunity to retreat" - such as a forest or a meadow nearby.

With very shy cats, it is important that the environment is quiet.

Marlon is now slowly arriving at the animal shelter, also coming to the employees and accepting treats.

'That also means he's quite comfortable.

He is only in the room with one cat, they also have an outdoor enclosure.

The other cat is very people-oriented, so Marlon can learn something from that.«

Animal placement rejected - decision was made by the animal shelter team

Ultimately, says McGee, the decision for or against a mediation is always one that is made as a team.

In the case of Marlon, a joint decision was made against mediation.

The chairman of the association Tierheim Wetterau (supporting association of the district animal shelter in Rödgen), Heiko Färber, is behind the decision.

He says: “As an animal shelter, we have an obligation to the animals that we adopt.

We comply with this by trying as best we can to place the animals where it makes sense.« The decision is made by trained animal keepers.

With Marlon, it was a matter of consideration: "We saw the conditions on site and said: They don't suit this animal."

For Ingilt Böhm, however, the decision is incomprehensible.

For Marlon, she says, home would have been better than a room at an animal shelter.

After the cancellation, she looked elsewhere.

She recently got a cat from the cat house in Bad Nauheim.

Cases like this aren't the only reason to turn down animal adoption—animal adoption is routinely shut down before Christmas Eve.
