Arrival Story: We thought that it would be a good thing to give another cat a forever home for the holidays. I was thinking that a female between 6 months and 1.5 years would be ideal to fit in with my 1.5 year old active males. We looked around at some of the shelter cats housed in the local PetSmarts, but they mostly were too young, too old, or couldn't get along with other cats or children. We decided to visit an actual SPCA shelter. After looking around on PetFinder, we decided on one that listed several cats that sounded like aa good fit and drove up. I don't think that I've ever seen so many cats housed in one place. You almost couldn't walk between all of them. In the last room, where the cats were kept in a colony setting, we found the perfect little girl, but were told that someone was currently filling out the papers to adopt her. I asked about the orange one with the thick tail and they told me he was about 6 months old and his name was Einstein. He came over and tried to climb up my leg. We all took turns holding him and he seemed very happy with us, purring away. We filled out the adoption paperwork and had to wait until the next day for them to check up on us with our vet. When we went back the next day to pick him up, the "cat" woman, who hadn't been there on the previous day, told us that we might not want to adopt him because we already had 2 males and there had been ringworm in the shelter. We went to look at the other cats again, but Einstein came running up to us when he saw us just as if he knew why we were there. How could we not take him home? So home he came on December 7th, 2009 and he became our Chaucer.
