Arrival Story:
I had wanted to adopt a cat to add to our family, but my husband wanted to wait until we moved into our new house (months away). We were renting then. It was during the winter and it was a rainy day. I went to get my mail, and all of a sudden, Hobie stepped out from behind a garbage can and came right up to me and starting meowing. There was someone else there, but she came to me! I hung out with her awhile, and all she wanted was to rest her paws on my knee and be petted. I figured she belonged to someone, but she was just exploring. I told her to go home, but she followed me up 3 flights of stairs to my apt. and walked right in as if she owned the place. I asked my husband if we could keep her. He said no, she belongs to someone. But, if she is still outside by the following week, then we'll keep her. Well, I let her go. I didn't see her for exactly 5 days. It had been raining all week and I was wondering about her. I figured she went home. Then one day, I happened to look down from the railing of the 3rd floor, and there she was, curled up in the courtyard below. I ran downstairs, and brought her back to my apt. She didn't have the same energy as before, and was much thinner. It appeared she had been outside in the rain and had not eaten all that time. I called my husband, told him about the situation, and he said, "Well I guess you'll have to go to the pet store and get some necessities". I left for about 45 minutes, not sure what to expect when I returned. Poor girl was asleep on our bed. We decided to keep her, but we did the right thing and reported her found to the Humane Society. Within the 30 day claim period, we got a call from someone who believed we had his cat. I was in tears! Turns out, he lost his cat when he moved out of our apartment complex with his family. The cat had got out, and they didn't find her, so they left without her. He said he had already adopted 2 other cats, and would we please give Hobie a good home. You bet! I was sad that they didn't do more to find her, but was glad that it worked out in our favor, and they had obviously loved her and took good care of her...she is a wonderful, vocal, affectionate lap kitty, and very sweet. We always tell people she adopted us!
