Inspiring & heartwarming stories from Central Alberta's adopted pets.
Cassitty's Adoption Story
On September 27th we lost our sweet Mei Li to Feline Chronic Disease. The house was so empty without her. I looked up cat adoptions available at the Central Alberta Humane Society and found "Zelda". My husband and I had agreed that we would only adopt a cat 2 years old or older since everyone wants kittens and mature cats get overlooked. The day I went in to meet her was unfortunate since there was no comfortable room available and the empty sterile room terrified "Zelda". I did, however, come back on October 3rd to adopt her.
The first thing we did was change her name to Cassitty. And then there was the week of her hiding about 70% of the time (although she always came out for meals). Once she realized my husband and I are on her side, she quickly took over and became the Queen she was born to be.
The absolute funniest (and most endearing) thing about Cassitty is her insistence on playing "fetch" 3 or more times a day, with each session lasting anywhere from 5 minutes to 15 minutes. She chases the thrown object and then brings it back to be dropped by my feet, talking to me the entire time. She is a serious sweetheart and a wonderful companion.
