Furry friends galore

I never grew up with pets. I was simply not allowed to have them. I begged BEGGED for pets growing up to no avail. I came really close one year when I was younger (and they thought I had diabetes). I came so close that year out of pity I think.. Anyways I clearly made it out of that DISASTER. And no dog. So I begged and begged and then I found out I could get a goldfish for my birthday! Got the tank, supplies, everything! But no fish. Oh yeah same with my hermit crabs. I finally threw the tank away a few years ago.

she loves my back rubs with my foot.

So anyways like I have said I have never owned a pet. I have always held a strong love for animals and waited for the day I was an adult and I could get a pet of my own. I got Claire this last year and she has been fun! Very interesting but still fun. She's got some issues but I still love her. And then yesterday I was walking through my apartment complex and I found a little kitty who was cold and wet outside and she was crying! She was tugging at my little heart strings so I had her follow me home, she saw my dog in her kennel and got skittish but quickly got over it when she saw food and water.

The sweet cat only wanted snuggles and love, never hissed or scratched at me and was very kind. No physical signs of abuse and only slightly underweight was an indication to me that she might have a family that is looking for her. I ended up calling animal control to see if she had a home. They came and I was hoping she wasn't a stray. She had a clipped ear which I hadn't noticed which according to them is an indication that she is a stray. But then the field officer decided to scan her for a microchip and realized that she DID have one!

I asked what the standard procedure  was and they said that if she hadn't been claimed by Saturday that I could come and get her. I seriously hope they don't come and get her because she was an angel and I would love to have her sweet spirit in my life! Even if it means I'm that much closer to becoming a crazy cat lady, it's ok. :)

Just look at her cute little face!! 



This adorable cat is a MALE!
I found him on the SLC Animal Shelter Site; I guess they updated it with his picture!
