-- the SPCA shelter in McKinney. Someone else had just been looking at him and was planning to come back later... but he made it clear he was going home with us, and now I don't know what we would ever have done without him. Sassy Lane
-- the shelter where I volunteer. We were looking for a companion for Dylan, and we were just leaving the kitten room when what we thought was a pillow stood up and stretched!
She was all sleepy and snuggly... instant love. Clyde Lee
-- the shelter where I volunteer. I would get hung up on him during my rounds in the kitten room... hold him like a baby for hours, sing to him, exchange nosekisses with him... until finally one day, somebody said, "When are you taking your cat home, anyway?" Abby Helen
-- the shelter where I volunteer. She was a feral who started out as a foster, but never became adoptable, so she's our girl now, and we love her dearly... partly because she's Clydie's mom!Pearl Noelle
-- the SPCA shelter in The Colony, via a PetSmart adoption event. We weren't looking for a kitty, though I did intend to get Clyde a companion someday... but we stopped to pick up some cat food and there she was. My mom said, "This is your kitty
. If you don't adopt her, I will, because she's the one
." So I took a leap of faith... and oh boy, was Mom right! St. John Dundee
-- the shelter where I volunteer. Someone threw him out of a car when he was six weeks old, a trucker rescued him, he ended up at the shelter, and we took him as a foster... supposedly for just two weeks. But we were goners from day one!
