Diana & Ken Steinke
I have had many cats over the years, but Casey was a beautiful calico tabby, born on a cattle ranch, and one of the most unique and wonderful cats I have ever experienced. She developed an inoperable Fibrosarcoma at 11 and by 14 we had made the decision to put her down.
I was so distraught at the loss of her but my husband Ken and I both knew we wanted another cat. I went out looking the very next day. There are so many to rescue, we couldn't see a reason to wait. We also have a rescue cat Hannah and wanted to have a companion back for her as well.
After looking in all the stores that have rescue adoptions on the weekends here, I found Maggie way downtown. The moment our eyes met, I knew. I called my husband to come and see what he thought.
She came to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona in Tucson at 8 months old and pregnant. After being spayed and recovery time, she had just come up for adoption that morning.
Had I not gone out searching, we would have missed getting her. She is a wonderful addition to our home. She is always giving us forehead bumps, and we're pretty sure that's her way of saying "thanks for letting me fill such big paws."
