The Story of an Abandoned Cat
Hi ya'll, my name is Kitty. That's probably not my given name, but no one here knows who I am. Here's why.
I once had a nice home with good people taking care of me. One day, my peeps put me in the car. I just thought we were going to the vet - which I dread, but something we did occasionally. Next thing I know, we're driving down a road I've never seen, lots of trees. My peeps open the car door and put me out! I'm thinking, "Are you kidding me, what's going on here?" Then, they drive off. My peeps drove off leaving me on the side of the road - no one even looked back at me. Do my peeps not love me? Did I do something wrong? If I did something wrong, I'm very sorry. I can do better. Please don't leave me here.
Hours passed. No one came for me. I was really scared, alone and hungry. I watched a lady walking a big dog down the street. Maybe there are some people nearby that could help me. I began walking around a neighborhood that was close by. I saw a lady in her yard. She looked nice. Maybe she would call my peeps for me and give me something to eat. I took a chance and walked in her direction. She called to me, "hey Kitty Kitty." That was music to my ears, so I went to her.
Well, it turns out she is a very nice lady who has a special place in her heart for animals. She gave me some food and water. She put a little house in her backyard for me. She checked around the neighborhood to see if anyone knew me. Of course, no one knows me here - I'm from somewhere else but I don't know how to get back there. The nice lady called around to the local animal shelters to see if someone could give me a home. The shelters are all full and have no room for an abandoned little kitty.
So, here I am. Now, there are two nice ladies feeding me and looking out for me. I am very grateful. But, they have their own animals and cannot keep me here. I need a new home. If you could find a place in your home for me or if you know someone who would like a good kitty, please come get me. I am sweet and like being around people. I promise to be a good kitty and will love you for the rest of my days. Please help me.
THIS STORY HAS A HAPPY ENDING!
Gulf Shores Critter Care made it our mission to find this kitty a new home. Through the power of Facebook, Kitty was re-homed after a call-out to the community. Thanks to a wonderful lady from Magnolia Springs, Alabama, with a big heart for animals, Kitty was given a forever home. We sincerely thank all the animal rescue heroes involved in this case. And, Kitty thanks you too.
