My family and I had gotten a cat from the Connecticut Humane Society over a dozen years ago who turned out to be the best family member anyone could have asked for. When his time came to a close, everyone was so broken hearted we weren't sure we could get another cat.

One fateful weekend before Christmas in 2015, I decided it was time to get another buddy for our other senior cat, who was now alone in the house. There was only one kitten left when I arrived as the Connecticut Humane Society once again, and decided to take a look at him. This little black and white ball of fur was listed as a "failure to thrive," and was on medication. Underweight and the runt of the litter, I knew he was the one.

Today, that little runt is one of the most gentle and sweetest cats I have ever owned, and he and his older brother nap together every day. Thank you for all our furry family members that have given us so much joy.
