Heart-warming stories of adopted pets and the people who love them.
I volunteered at the Humane Society from March-September. While there I met a blind cat named Jodi. She was placed in an up-and-down kennel and staff thought she would do better in a side-by-side. She was a large cat so we put her in a 3-room suit. My 12-year-old sister put her litter box in the far right and the food, water and bed in the far left. I was very concerned about her finding her way, so I used her food dish to walk her through all three rooms. I planned on adopting her when I returned from a camping trip with my fiancée. I was heartbroken when I got back and found out she was gone. Due to personal circumstances I had to quit volunteering.
I was just looking on their site on a whim and I saw Jodi! I knew I had to have her. I went straight there and adopted her. While I waited I was loving on her and she took her paw and put it on my arm and pulled it into her chest. She still does this and holds my hand close to her. I am her 3rd home in 6 months. She is an amazing girl. She is still finding her way around the house, but she walks around purring non-stop. She plays and has decided her favorite place is outside. I bought her a doggy door and can watch her from the warmth of my house as she explores my back yard. She cuddles me and is very talkative. They say if you let something go and it comes back to you it was meant to be. We were meant to be. <3
