Heart-warming stories of adopted pets and the people who love them.
Meant To Be
Nathan Scott Phillips (Formerly Aaron Purr)
I remember looking at cats for months. I had a very specific kitty in mind: a young grey kitten that would be OK with other animals. I wanted to name him Nathan Scott Phillips. You see, one of the reasons that my mom and I wanted a cat was to give our old 7-year-old collie a friend. He would sit at home all day alone, and we constantly felt bad for doing so. So then started the searching. I looked and looked for months, and felt hopeless after 2 months of checking shelters every day. I almost gave up after finding 3 different cats and then coming back the next day to find them adopted. Then one day, I stumbled upon this little fella. From the moment I saw him, I knew he was the one! His name was Aaron Purr and was exactly what I wanted, and I knew this was a sign. You see, at the time I had recently become OBSESSED with Hamilton, and knew that I had to have this kitten. Since then, we have adopted this young furball, and he's 100% found his forever home. I was worried that he wouldn't get along with Marley, but the two are now best friends! They even share water bowls! As for Marley, he's never been better. There's some sort of playfulness inside of him that has come out ever since and brought out a whole new side of him! I don't know what life would have been like without our little Nathan!
