Inspiring & heartwarming stories from Central Alberta's adopted pets.
Indie's Adoption Story
I adopted Indie in February 2023 after unexpectedly having to put my 8 month old kitten down the month before. I wasn't expecting to be ready for another cat so soon, but my sister was volunteering at the shelter during this time and suggested I meet Indie. As soon as I met her, I knew I had to bring her home. In our appointment she was scared by the shelter noises, but continued to come to me for comfort. She had also been in shelter since my kitten was born, so it felt like a sign that she was meant for me. Over the last few months, I have had the absolute joy of watching Indie slowly trust that I will be her forever and come out of her shell as a result. When I brought her home, she mostly slept and didn't come for cuddles much. Now, she has zoomies around the apartment multiple times a day, will cuddle anytime I'm sitting down (including demanding them while I'm trying to work!), sleeps with me all night, and loves to watch the birds that come to our balcony. I'm so thankful to have Indie in my life, and know we were meant to have each other.
