Don’t you just love those stories about how when an animal needs a home, it gets one?
Oh my gosh! Me, too.
A few months ago, my parents were shopping. Dad wanted to go into a sporting goods store that was right next to a pet store.
What’s a girl to do?
My “heart of gold” mom who looooooooves cats, marched herself right in to the pet store!
There was an extremely nervous female cat hiding in a crate. Like so nervous, that no one could see her face. Mom was curious, so she asked about her.
Turns out, after 8 years, the previous owners gave her to a shelter. The poor thing’s life had to have been flipped sideways. She had such a hard time adapting, the shelter took her to the pet store.
The pet store workers tried to talk mom into getting a friendly, yellow tabby, but mom went with her heart and chose the cat that nobody wanted.
After a few weeks, that once “scared in the pet store” cat, warmed up.
Now, it’s almost like she’s right where she was meant to be, with mom and dad.
