By Bridget Raley, loving adopter
“We brought TJ home two years ago. He was a shy two-year-old who had been in the cattery for about five months. Our purpose in adopting him was rather selfish at first. We were going through some rough work-related stress, and I thought we needed some “pet therapy.” We did changed his life, but he sure changed ours as well. I hadn’t lived with a pet since I was a child, and my family had never owned a pet. We worked hard to learn what he needed to make him feel safe with us. We fussed over him when he got sick, took him on trips with us, and bought him toys to play with- we learned that he prefers a string tied to a rubber band. He sleeps on our feet, waits for us by the door when we go out, chats with us about our day, reminds us to give him his treats, and purrs at the sound of our voices. He is the joy of our lives.”
We are so happy that TJ has found his forever home!
