ADOPT 2012 CONTEST
My Mom had handed over to heaven her baby FurAngelDaniel earlier in the year. In the process of giving him up she grieved terribly and didn't think she could ever allow another furkid to touch her as he did. Well little did she know that my skin sister Amy had other ideas. Her and her family were looking for Mom the perfect comfort and friend when toward the end of the year they found me in the adoption program at Petsmart.
They gave Mom a call nervously and were determined that if Mom would not come look at me they would take me themselves even though they were not really looking for themselves. Well after much hesitation and risking others who were getting upset at Amy for holding me and carrying me around the store while Mom made her decision.. Mom said okay...she would come and look at me but no guarantees cuz she only wanted Daniel.
Mom and Dad hurried out to Petsmart and when Mom saw me she began to cry cuz she fell instantly in love with me. :D From that moment on it was a whirlwind of signing adoption papers, buying a collar (which I proceeded to chew up.) and a matching leash. Finally I came home to meet my sisfur Sweet Caroline and ALL THE KITTIES OMD!! (all animals Mom has effur had except Daniel were and are rescues/adoptions).. I have NEVER SEEN A CAT in my life and Eddy and Timmy were scared to death of me and slapped me around even though they outweighed me by 10 pounds at the time. Mom took great care to keep them away from me after seeing the reaction and now we are civil to each other although not best buds like Caroline and me are.
I am Mommas baby.. she loves me dearly and would tell everyone that rescue/adotption is one of the greatest way to go. The story goes that I was found by the rescue group on "death row" at the Dog Pound here in Stockton, and that I was taken and fostered along with much grooming to get me in shape for my new home. I am a good boy.. and so happy to live with my Mom and Dad who adore me.
