Here are some pictures of
Manu who I have renamed Happy Boy because he is just so happy! The day
after I adopted him we played all afternoon, and after four days he started
sleeping on the bed with me at night.
Adopting him is the best
thing I could've done for myself after my cat of 21 years past away a
few months ago. He has really helped with that empty feeling I had.
As you may know, I went to my new home on Wednesday, September 26, 2012. It was a short car ride to Long Island and then I went for a walk with my new dog friend, Scarlett and my humans....lots of grass and tress to sniff! I get to sleep in bed with everyone and have lots of new toys to play with. So far, so good....
Last August I happened into your shelter with a friend,
thinking I was just going to play with some kittens on a Sunday afternoon. Instead, I ended up adopting a kitten.
You guys had dubbed her “Lupe”, but I named
her Ellie instead. Eleanor Meowsevelt, actually,
because “no one can make you feel inferior without your purr-mission” J. I certainly hadn't meant to get a cat that
day, but when I met her, I knew she and I were perfect for each other. Apparently, you did, too. I am so glad you did.
This beautiful cat had been one of the greatest things that
has ever happened to me. She is the
sweetest, softest, funniest, cuddliest cat I have ever met, and she makes me
laugh every single day. She even plays
fetch (for real, she has a toy mouse I’ll throw and she’ll run and get, then
bring back to me to throw again and again)!
I don’t know how frequently you get emails updating you on the pets that
are adopted from your location, but I had to share with you how much she has
brought to my life. I’m a graduate
student living by myself in Brooklyn, so there are days when I’ll be studying
from morning to night and wont ever leave the house, But Ellie is always with
me, on my lap while I read journal articles, or helping relieve my stress with
the sound of her constant purring. She
keeps me human, she keeps me smiling, and she’s very vocal, so she actually
chirps back at me when I talk to her.
I want you to know how happy she and I both are together. She found a wonderful, loving home, and I
found an adorable, caring companion. We
are a perfect pair, and I look forward to having her in my life for many, many
years to come.
