I absolutely love adoption stories where the pet parent – or for that matter, the cat – simply knows that they’ve found their match. No matter how many “I just knew he/she was the one” stories I hear, they never get old. They’re all special in their own ways.
So, I thought it would be a great time to post this “I just knew” adoption story, especially since it was just Valentine’s Day. I hope you enjoy it, and if you’d like to, please send in your story!
“I have the most amazing cat ever, and she has cerebellar hypoplasia.
I was getting cat food for my cat at a pet store that was having a cat adoption day. All of the cats were in crates expect for one. She was just laying in the middle of the store looking around. I was automatically curious.
I went up to the adoption rep and asked about the cat. She giggled at me and told me to go pet the cat. As soon as I was done petting her she started “walking” after me. She was flopping and falling all over.
The people around stared at this poor cat. I could hear the cruel things they were all saying about this sweet and beautiful black cat. I went up to the agency rep and asked her what the odds were of this cat being adopted. The rep explained to me that this 8-month-old cat was born in the agency, and no one had ever taken a second look at her until me. At that moment I knew I had to take this special cat home.
My amazing cat is named Von, and we have been together for more than a year with my other cat, Jade. At times I don’t know who’s happier that Von is with us. It’s definitely a toss-up between me, Jade, and Von.”
