Happy National Cat Day!!
How could I let this day pass and not write a post about my little Holly. I adopted Holly about 3 weeks after I was out of college and living alone in my first apartment 2 hours from home. Ever since then, she has been my little buddy and best friend. Yes, she can be psychotic at times, and runs around for no reason at about 3:00 in the morning, but she is such a special little cat.
The day I adopted her, I went to a woman’s house in Swampscott because she was fostering a new litter of kittens on behalf of Friend’s of Marblehead’s Abandoned Animal Shelter. ( A no-kill non-profit animal shelter). When I reached the room there was two twin beds, where the kittens were all curled up on one of the beds. I sat down on the other one, and instantly, Holly jumped from the bed with the kittens on it, and jumped up into my lap. The woman came in and said, “She’s the friendly one of the litter, and the friendliest kitten I have seen in the 4 years I have been fostering kittens.”
I just knew this was my cat. I didn’t pick her, she chose me, and I am thankful every day for her decision.
