Arrival Story: Sofie was our first adoption from Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary, a non-profit rescue organization. My husband and I were shopping at our local Pet Club store on Saturday, October 2nd, 2004, and every Saturday there is a pet adoption fair sponsored by Safe Haven. While we were watching them get set up, I spotted a sweet little kitty face peering from her cage in the very back of the room. Once they were ready to let people in, I went straight to "Lizzie's" cage. Diane, her foster mom and rescuer, told us that Sofie was rescued along with her brother Smitty and sister Midgie on June 29th, 2004, from someone's front yard. The homeowners wouldn't feed them because they wanted them to leave the property. We took turns holding Sofie all wrapped up in a small blanket and decided to adopt her. Diane brought her to our home a few days later. I purchased a pink bed just for her and she stayed there, looking nervous. Milo was the first of our pets to meet Sofie and he immediately started to groom her, which was what she really needed. Milo was like a nurturing father and she loved him the most.
Bio: Sofie was extremely shy towards humans, but with alot of patience, love, and understanding, she has slowly come out of her shell and we don't push her. Her meow is tiny and squeaky and she's petite for her age. Though she's still somewhat shy, she's a sweet little girl who has blossomed into a wonderful little lady and has learned that her mom and dad are good people that love her. Sofie has beautiful electric green eyes, but she's very camera-flash sensitive, so I'm not always able to capture their true beauty.
Mom was sending an IM (instant message) to Darci at work this morning to ask her a question. Mom thanked Darci for the answer and Darci replied, "Have a great day!" and included this image from her list of emoticons on the screen:
