Arrival Story:
Out of the blue one day my husband said I could get another cat as an early birthday present. The first few cats we looked at didnt quite fit in with our existing household of pets. Eventually we stumbled upon Earl. He was outgoing, loved to meet new people, and adorable. We adopted him the day we came home with him! The rescue group we got him from gave us his sad back story, which if we had been on the fence about getting him, made us want him even more. Him and a cat friend had been turned in to a kill shelter earlier in the year by a good Samaritan who had found them on the street. Earl had a sever laceration on his back right leg that needed medical attention, and this Samaritan didnt know where else to take them. Well, later Samaritan found out the cats had not been claimed by anyone and were going to be put down, so he came back and adopted both cats. However a few months later, he broke up with his girlfriend, left the cats there, girlfriend got a new boyfriend, and new boyfriend took the two cats back to the same kill shelter. That is when the rescue stepped in and were able to take Earl, but not his buddy unfortunately. A couple months later, we came along and got Earl! They estimate Earl is anywhere between 1-3 years old at the time of our August 2007 adoption, however with his looks, behavior and lack of sleep, we think he is more towards a year old as he acts more kitten like.
