After being a dog lover all my life and the loss of my last adopted best friend dog Magee from a local no-kill shelter who had spent the first 7 estimated years of his life in the shelter and then another great quality remaining 7 years shared together with him a kitty showed up after a storm about a year later. I trapped this abandoned kitty using our city's volunteer trap and release program and took her to the local Animal Hospital. They found out that she must have been an indoor spayed friendly. She was vetted and in great health and now chipped. But the great folks at the Animal Hospital did not think she would be adoptable and released her back to me. I decided to welcome her into the house as a forever friend and give her every chance that she could acclimate to being an indoor again. Now after 2 years of having her inside and with her own bedroom sleeping on or under the bed she is living the dream more and more every day. I believe she is a gift to me and I to her. She loves to look out the front window and the the back patio door. and play with her toys. Although she still will not allow me to get too close to actually have contact with her yet it is very obvious to me that she is so happy. I have allowed her to go outside a few times for a short time and she comes back in quickly knowing this is her safe haven and her forever home.
