My Journey Into Rescue — Can I Go See The Cats In Petco?

“Mother, can we go see the cats in Petco? Simply to take a look at them?”- Me at 8 years outdated.

In fact, we got here dwelling with two kittens. Life with two cats is the way it was imagined to be. I had misplaced the final member of my childhood kitty duo just a few months prior, and issues simply weren’t the identical. I believe we had been all lacking life with out the morning meows for meals and pets, the comedy of nightly zoomies, and the satisfaction of being the chosen lap whereas watching “Survivor” on Friday evening with the household (and had forgotten the periodic “items” of useless mice and rats in the lounge).

Naturally, the very first thing I did as an grownup as soon as I used to be now not dwelling in a tiny NYC shoe field was deliver dwelling a cat, Eloise. I shortly realized Eloise wanted a good friend and got here throughout this image of a tiny kitty wanting on the digicam with the cutest little scowl on the Fortunate Canine web site. 48 hours later I used to be within the car parking zone of Dogma Bakery taking Benny (“Magic”) dwelling! Whereas I didn’t comprehend it then, quick ahead somewhat greater than a yr and I might have helped somewhat over 250 different cats make their method dwelling from that little car parking zone in Arlington.

Working with Fortunate Canine has been such a rewarding expertise in so some ways. I had the chance to go to our primary shelter associate in Florence, SC twice now and it was actually wonderful to see the work being performed to save lots of so many cats and canines. Whereas it may be unhappy and overwhelming to see so many animals in want, matching cats who had been simply in a small crate the week earlier than to a loving house is the perfect feeling.

There’s something actually particular about cat folks. Whether or not it’s a member of our wonderful cat staff who spends hours every week facilitating adoptions, or our devoted fosters who present the help wanted to transition from shelter to eternally dwelling, or a volunteer in South Carolina making a mama cat snug and fed as she cares for her infants, all the ecosystem round cat rescue is a singular and particular place.
