Princess Trinity

There was once a beautiful princess who spent many hours enjoying Maine fields and woods, making friends with all the animals she encountered. The princess had skin of alabaster and hair of ebony, and her name was Trinity. She was loved by all who knew her, except for her evil stepsister who was very jealous of the princess’s beauty and all her friends. Her evil stepsister dabbled in sorcery, and one day she turned Princess Trinity into a cat. Trinity was just as beautiful as a cat…black and white and small enough to hold in your hands. The stepsister soon realized that even as a cat, the princess was still going to be popular and beloved. This would not do, so the stepsister cast one more spell – a curse that meant the princess could not go home to her castle again, and would not have any more animal friends. Princess Trinity would be alone in the world and would despise the friendly creatures she once cared for so much. The stepsister wasn’t completely heartless, she left Trinity’s love for humans intact. She also cast a charm on an unknown stranger who, if Trinity could find them, would welcome Trinity into their home. So, finding a family again would be possible but not easy; Trinity would need to find that one charmed stranger who would be willing to take her in and love her as a cat. While wandering the streets looking for the family of her destiny, well-meaning people brought her to Responsible Pet Care. No one knew she was actually a princess in a cat’s body. The curse had taken full effect, and Trinity loathed the cats, dogs, and other creatures she had once felt such affection for. Since April 2022, she has spent her days alone at the shelter, except for the nice humans who work there and the people who come to visit the cats. So far none of them have been the family of her destiny, the ones who are meant to see past the curse and love her for all time. Trinity has her whole life ahead of her; as a cat she is less than 2 years old. We want to help Trinity find the people who are destined to give her a
home again. We know it’s an adult home without other pets. Is it you who is meant to give this fairy tale a happy ending for Trinity? Please come to the shelter or call us at 207-743-8679. Trinity is searching for you.
