Velvet- She came from our local humane society
Jasmine - A very reputable no-kill cat rescue i used to volunteer for. (one of the best rescues in our area! i volunteered there for years and fostered! Jasmine was a foster cat that never went back
Isabella- She came from the same rescue as Jasmine- she was dumped by her horrid breeder after she had been abused, at a VERY high kill shelter. The owner of Mewtopia saw her and took her in. I brought her home to foster her and bring her out of her shell- and i knew my home was the only one for her!
Kojak- my niece and her friends found him and his littermates one day after school when they walked past a couple of mean kids that were trying to hurt them. Her and her friends grabbed them and ran home with them and called me. I let the shelter where i work know what was going on and they became shelter kitties- but i fostered them as they were newborns
Kojak was the runt, and the sickly one of the bunch- he stayed with me long after his littermates were neutered and found homes. By the time it was time for me to take him to be placed for adoption i was SOOOOOOO attached- i started bawling right then and there- Colin saw how much i loved Kojak and said we could keep him
All of my cats are rescues/shelter animals. I definitely acknowledge that there are certainly wonderful, very good breeders out there. But for me, i personally refuse to buy an animal from a breeder when there are countless animals (both purebreed and moggies) in shelters across the country that die each day due to overpopulation. I work at a shelter, i swear i'd take them all home with me if i could lol.
