Well, I couldn’t do it…I couldn’t go that long without getting a new pet. Really, my husband and son were a little more ready to jump in to animal ownership again. My husband wanted another dog, my son was a little indifferent but was leaning more toward a cat.
Last Saturday the local Humane Society had a huge adoption event at the state fairgrounds. Apparently they have this event twice a year. I’d never heard of it until we saw a commercial for it on T.V. We ended up getting there about an hour after they opened and literally most of the dog crates were empty already. Of course they had more coming in but I was really surprised to see how many people walking out already with a new pet. All of the animals had been spayed/neutered, chipped and fully vetted for the year, and the adoption fee was reduced to $30. They had about twelve different Veterinary places there and were advertising over 750+ animals that needed to be adopted.
We started in the cat area and my son fell in love with this little guy right away.
This is Maverick…he’s such a sweet kitty. He’s about ten months old, missing the tip of one of his ears and has had some sort of eye infection that has left one of his eyes looking a little cloudy, other than that he’s healthy. He’s long and lanky, loves laying on the couch pillows while we’re watching T.V., being held, and having his neck and chin rubbed. I’ve never seen such a docile happy kitty.
If you’re in the market for a new pet, I would hope that you would try your local Humane Society. It’s a great place to find an animal that just wants to be loved.
So happy for the new addition to our family~Bam
