One evening I found myself scrolling through The Toronto Humane Society (THS) website at pictures of treasures available for adoption. I noticed a black long hair had been in the shelter for nearly 2 years-being a black cat, and having a heart murmur was preventing her from having a "fur"ever home. When I went to the shelter I couldn't find her and was told she had a cough and was on medication. She was ready for adoption that evening. She was taken from a home where she was neglected and abused. So,she was hiding in the back of her cage behind her litter box, trembling. I filled out the paperwork, conducted my security interview, changed her name and introduced "Princess Tabitha" to her new life of Pet Spa's, holistic food, and Louis Vuitton collars. 6 years later she is now deaf, and has arthritis in her back legs.She loves being carried around, and uses her custom stairs to get up on the couch whenever she likes.She snuggles with me when I have a migraine,and purrrs me to sleep.
A couple years after adopting Princess Tabitha, I found another 4 year old treasure that had been abandoned at the front door of the THS, with all four claws removed and a note attached explaining what a "horrible bad cat" he was.The note stated they were..."hitting him out of frustration".I adopted this angel, and named him Cougar-for being so courageous. He's the smartest most loving cat ever. Friends and family joke that he's a "momma's boy" because he follows me everywhere and never lets me out of his sight. He's now 7 years old and loves to bird watch from the den window. He's Princess Tabitha's best friend,and they are my little angels! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You Toronto Humane Society!
