Heart-warming stories of adopted pets and the people who love them.
My Knight in shinning armor
I lost my cat Powder at the age of 21 the beginning of this year, I swore to myself that I would never get another cat, it hurt too much to have him leave me. For weeks I would look out the window under his tree where he was buried and cry. Then a few days ago a friend of mine posted something on my Facebook page, it was a link to "Chocolate Bunny" (Now aptly named Sir Bedivere,) His story was that he had a really rough time until someone brought him into the shelter, he was almost starved to death and had a huge gash on his face, He looked like he had been through so much and my heart went out to him. I sent an email to the shelter immediately asking if he was still available and that I would be in Friday after work to meet him.
When I got there the girls were so happy that I had come in to see him, I could tell that he had touched the lives of all those that had cared for him. After meeting him and seeing his personality and after all that he had went through, he was still a gentle and loving cat, I knew I had to take him home. The adoption process was so wonderful and it pleased my heart to see a lot of people adopting. That night when we got home, he prowled around a bit and found a dark spot to hide, I let him stay to himself, and he eventually came to me and got up on my desk and laid while I did some work on my computer, he was purring and seemed very content. At bed time he followed me and we both got into bed, he stayed at the foot until I called him to let him know it was okay, then he made his way to my chest and laid down, he licked my cheek and I cried and hugged him. I cried because I knew he was happy and that small gesture of his kindness and affection was his way of saying, "Thank you." He does not know this, or maybe he does, but he in turn rescued me as much as I did him. He is truly my knight in shinning armor. Thank you Sir Bedivere.
