Hi everyone. We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
We are also joining Lola’s hop for #Remember Me Thursday. A day to spread the word about pet adoption.
I am thankful for all my cats, most showed up in my yard, but Sammy and Joanie were adopted from a shelter. Back in May of 2010, I already had 13 cats as well as my niece and her cat living with us. She ended up fostering a cat that I wanted to adopt, he looked a lot like Sammy. She knew my hubby didn’t want anymore cats so she found a home for the other cat. I was so upset that I looked on Petfinder for a doppleganger. That is when I spotted Sammy at a local shelter. I filled out the paperwork and got approved despite letting them know I already had 13 cats.
When I went to get Sammy, I discovered he was with his sister, Megan( I changed her name to Joanie-my mom’s name). The shelter worked said they didn’t have to be adopted together and that their other sibling was already adopted. This broke my heart as they were already 4 years old. There was no way I was separating these two. I didn’t have the $70 for her so I left the money there for Sammy and said I would come back on Monday. I didn’t want to take Sammy away from his sister. That was the best decision I ever made. My hubby was mad at me, but he got over it. He loves them both.
I can’t imagine my life without these two. They will be 15 on the 30th which scares me because I know our time together is getting short.
If your pet was adopted please share your story. You can help a shelter of your choice win much needed funds and supplies. To learn more, click here.
