Happy One Year Adoption, Oreo!


One year ago I made the decision to adopt a cat that was hanging around the local university. It was bloody cold this time last year (like 50+ degrees colder; that’s not an exaggeration) and my heart just hurt so badly at the thought of this sweet kitty being outside in the bitter weather. I brought her to the vet and had her checked out to make sure she didn’t have any communicable diseases to bring back home to Buddy cat. She passed with flying colors and she came home. Things were tough at first, to the point where I considered trying to find her a new home.

But I’m glad I listened to God’s voice in this. He kept telling me to be patient, to give her a chance. And I did. And she’s now acclimated so nicely (though there are still some moments between her and Buddy) and has really taken to being an indoor kitty. And why shouldn’t she? This is her life now:

A couch is much better than sleeping outside

So is sleeping on my bed....  ;)

I often wonder if she remembers her life before coming to live with me and Buddy. Does she sleep in the nice warm house and think “Gee, this is a hell of a lot better than sleeping on the cold ground.” When she goes to her food bowl and it’s always full does she think to herself, “Damn, this is better than having to scrounge for scraps or go hungry.”

I like to think she loves me and loves being here. Either way, I’m glad she’s my sweet girl now and will live the rest of her kitty life all nice and warm and well-fed and healthy!
