We very unexpectedly lost our cat Frosty to a heart disease in March and decided that a life without a cat is not a good one. After viewing some pictures and information on different cats on the SAFE Haven site, we decided to adopt two and went to the shelter. It turned out that night was not an adoption night so we had to come back the next day. When we came back, one of the volunteers recognized us and told us that she noticed the day before our son playing and being interested in one of the cats that was just being ready to be adopted. Her name was CC and when we asked our son if this is the one, he said yes. I guess, it was “love at first sight.” After we brought her home, CC turned out to be a perfect cat for our family. She is very affectionate and a “purring machine.”
From the start we wanted two cats, we decided to bring CC a friend but we were worried that an older cat might overwhelm her, since she has such a sweet and loving personality. So, we decided on a kitten. Again, we went to SAFE Haven and came back home with Bethel (now Cleo, short for Cleopatra). We were still worried how the two will get along but, after initial hissing and checking each other out, we think they are friends already. When I think of Cleo, I think of Tigger from “Winnie the Pooh” and “Well, I gotta go now! I got a lot of bouncing to do! Hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!” We know we found our BEST friends!
