A few days ago (Sunday, October 8th to be exact) I went to the humane society in search of a feline friend to help me transition to a new home. Living alone had me sad at night.
As my mom and I waited to be helped by one of the many friendly staff members, we looked around. My mom found herself over and over returning to Thumbelina's cage. She was this gorgeous black cat with white paws. The look on her face said "don't mess with me," but when they opened her cage so I could interact with her, I immediately knew she was the one.
Bringing her home, she was of course very scared, but before I even had her for 24 hours, she had opened up drastically. She started meowing and purring and seeking out attention.
Before long, she had the run of the house and quickly claimed her rightful title as "princess." It didn't take her long at all to put her trust in me and find her spot next to me in bed at night.
Adopting Thumbelina is was the absolute best decision I ever made and she has made nights here so much easier.
