Husband and wife fell in love with brother and sister
My husband and I have always enjoyed cats. We knew wanted to adopt, but we didn't know when, if we wanted a kitten, a senior, etc. Upon recovering from the last part of the flu, I went on the Connecticut Humane Society website. I went to the cat section and two eyes looked right back at me. Her name was Luna, and she was one of the most beautiful cats I had ever seen. I kept scrolling through the cats and noticed Luna had a brother named Casper. Casper immediately stole my heart. I told my husband and we went to see the kitties a few days later. The second we walked into the room, we were in love. Casper greeted us almost immediately. He cuddled on our laps, played with the strings on my hoodie, and pretty soon I was covered in white fur! Luna took some coaxing, but soon after started purring away as we stroked her. My husband and I looked at each other and we knew this was it. We were able to take our two new furry friends home the very same day!
Note: My husband and I could not get over how clean and efficient the CT Humane Society in Waterford was. The rooms each animal was in were immaculate. Volunteers were there to play with the cats and dogs. All the animals there are extremely well cared for!
