Arrival Story: Oreo used to be a stray cat with kittens before arriving at the shelter Friends for Life. After being such a good mother she had been chilling at the shelter before me and my family came along. Looking for a cat, since I had been asking for about 2 years, we had originally thought of getting a kitten, but to be honest I wanted an older cat. So we had already made some choices, not including Oreo, but it didn't go as expected so me and my family sat in one of the cat rooms for awhile. Then Oreo came walking up to me and started biting my shoe lace. I wasn't very sure but I took this as a good thing and choose her. My mom wasn't so excited but it didn't take long before my she was cooing at Oreo. Now Oreo is living here with my family attacking anything string like and my curtains but I wouldn't give her up because she can be quite loving when she wants to and that makes me even more happy than I usually am.
