I was never so happy to see people than the morning after I was abandoned at the shelter. Someone tied me to the front porch of the shelter on a freezing cold night; I shivered and shivered all night long. Just when I was ready to give up one of the staff arrived and saved me. I can’t tell you how thankful I was to get inside. They gave me a nice meal and some water but the best thing they gave me was a warm blanket. The wonderful thing is I am allowed to keep it, it is all mine and I sleep with it every night. When you have nothing the small things in life mean so much. Now that I am settled and cared for I hope that one more wish is granted to me and that would be to have a forever family. I had no place to call home and was roaming the streets until some nice people got me to the shelter. It is so nice to be cared for; I get food everyday! I have a nice bed and some toys but the thing I want the most I don’t have and that is a family. I have heard staff say I am a handsome cat; they like my orange and white fur and I am a friendly fellow. My friends here at the shelter meet all my needs but I want more. I want to cuddle and snuggle with my family members. I don’t mind having another cat or dog around, they would be my playmates. So now all I need is for you to find me and take me home, I am trying to wait patiently and hope I get to “go home” this week.
