Who rescued who?
Recently divorced and moving into a new place, I found myself living alone for the first time in my life.
At first, I wasn't sure I wanted to bring a cat into this madness even though I knew eventually I wanted one, but I found myself on the road, headed towards the CT Humane Society in Westport on October 8th, 2017.
My mom had seen Thumbelina's picture on the website and even at the shelter, kept gravitating back towards her cage saying "I wanna know her story and what she's like."
The second one of the many helpful staff opened her cage, I knew she had to come home with me. I held my hand out for her and she immediately started rubbing against it over and over.
Fast forward 24 hours and she became queen of the house. It didn't take her long to claim her spot in my bed and even seek out my attention any time she wanted it. She will follow me around while meowing and purring up a storm.
She quickly wiggled her way into my life and heart. Adopting Thumbelina was by far the best decision I had made in quite some time.
