Not fond of the dogs
She was quickly climbing up the ladder to my top bunk bed!
After losing our white cat Oliver on December tenth,and our Bengal boy Taz on the ninteenth I knew the only thing that would make me feel better would be opening up our home to an older shelter cat for Christmas. But with it being such a busy time,and stuff,my mom and I decided to wait and go to the pound in the spring or summer. Well,on the twenty-first of December,I was with my mom at Petsmart buying Christmas presents for our remaining pets,when my mom told me to come over by the Petsmart Charities adoption area. I had always kinda stayed clear of that area cause it broke my heart to see so many cats that needed a home and I couldn't take them all,but now I saw what my mom was looking at. More like "who" my mom was looking at. In a big glass and wire cage,laying on a cat bed,was a beautiful white cat. I looked at the tag on her cage,which said,"Dotti,eight year old female,spayed,white with lime green eyes". I knew right then that I wanted her. There were some adorable kittens up for adoption next to Dotti's cage,and most of the Petsmart shoppers were looking at the kittens and just walking past Dotti's cage. But I sure wasn't! My mom said we should think about it,so we left,but were back twenty minutes later to check on her. We asked a Petsmart worker if we could look at her,but she said since the adoption had to go through another shelter,we had to wait and come back on Sunday,when they did the adoptions. "Sunday's Christmas." I said. "I can't even look at her?" But they wouldn't let us pet her or anything. Our dog,Flanagan,had been getting a bath at the same time,and a few hours later we were there to pick her up. We were a few minutes early,so I wanted to go check on Dotti. There were people from the shelter which held the adoptions by the cage,and they let us come in a little room and take her out of the cage. One of them turned out to be Oliver,a friend from Catster who lives in our town,'s mom! My mom filled out the paperwork,while I played with Dotti,and Oliver's mom Teresa helped us adopt her. Since we got her at Christmas,and she was my Christmas present,we named her Noelle,that's pronounced Noel,like the song. She is so very sweet and it's like Oliver led us straight to her.
They said before she was brought to Petsmart she had been dumped at a pet food supply store. She was then brought to a foster home,then to Petsmart,where we got her. :))))
