How I got my forever home

Way back in 2002 my human had to put her 12 year old kitty, Ambrosia, to sleep because of a yucky terminal illness.  After a month at work her co-workers said you need another kitty.  In April of 2002, after a long day at work, they took her to PetSmart and she went into a room where there were kitties needing forever homes.  She said Hello to all the kitties and called them by their names.  None of them even looked at her or responded at all.  I was on the top right corner.  She said Hello Ali and I perked right up and meowed.  She put her hand up to pet me and I licked her fingers.  The lady in charge of the room asked would she like to hold me, of course she said yes.  She held me and started scratching me between my ears and I started purring.  At that point I was sprung and was taken home where I am in charge.

My human calls me Pookie, Cuddles, Fur Ball, Short Stuff, Snuggle Bum, Sweetie and my favorite Your Royal Cuteness.

That’s how I got my forever home.

    What a great story Ali! Good thing you “spoke right up” when she called your name!!! I had a similar sneaky thing….my Mom and Dad came into the cat room at the shelter and I was WAY on top in a small cage…..they walked over and I stuck my tiny paw out through the bars and my Dad said “that’s the one!!!!”………..hahahaha

    Hugs, Sammy

    A wonderfur story Ali! My brofur Toby did much the same. Our Dad was “just visiting” a local no cage rescue. Dad sat down and Toby ran up a cat tree and poked him and said “MEOW.” The next week he went back “out of curiosity on that black kitty” and guess who ran up again! Toby! He is a great panfur brofur and I know you are the purrfect kitty fur your Mom too!
    Yay on your forever home Ali
