Arrival Story: I went to the pet store to buy fish food. They had adoptable animals there and I had to look of course, no plans to adopt at the time though. Izzy was the only adult cat (3 years old). Her previous people had given her up because of allergies. As I passed the cage she reached her paw out and snagged my shirt with one claw. I asked to hold her and instantly decided I couldn't leave without her. She's been a beloved member of our family ever since.
