Blog the Change for Animals (#BtC4A) is a chance for bloggers to write about an animal related cause. I want to write about adopting more than one cat from the shelter.
It breaks my heart when families get torn apart ( people and animal). When I went to adopt Sammy, I did not know he had a sister. As soon as I saw he had a sibling, there was no way I was leaving her behind. I had only brought $70 for his adoption fee and I was already tempting fate adopting him without asking my husband’s input on the matter.
I didn’t ask because I knew he would say no, we already had 13 cats at the time. In matters concerning cats, I find it easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. I ended up paying Sammy’s fee, but leaving him there for the weekend because I did not want Joanie (Meghan, at the time) to be without him. I was also told they had another sibling that had already been adopted which haunts me still. I can’t believe shelters will separate families of cats and that people are willing to adopt just one. They were already 4 years old at the time and were obviously bonded.
If you are thinking of adopting a cat, how about adopting a bonded pair? I am sure you will not regret it.
We are also joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.
I thought there was a hop for Blog the Change, but I can’t find the information right now so I will add it as soon as I find it.
