Special Cats 2019, Special Tails
- Positive Attitude Kitty
Porter was surrendered to a shelter on 12/22/18, with the only notes that the owner had too many cats. He was not doing well in the shelter, most cats do not. Purebred cats even less so. We got him from them in early January and were so glad we did. The first day he arrived, he just wanted to sit next to us and snuggle. Snuggle the first day? He was, of course, a little scared and tired, but after a few days we started to see his fantastic happy attitude!
Porter let us know just how happy he was to be at home every chance he got. He greeted us every morning with purrs and head-butts. He loved to play with string toys, to show his great hunting ability. When he wasn’t looking for attention, he was exploring – zooming from room to room at full speed. You could usually tell he had just passed through because the throw rug was bunched up against the wall.
We could not help but fall in love with this special boy. In fact, Porter quickly made friends with our resident cat, and greeted every new human visitor to the house like a long lost friend. This little fellow was such a lover; he would always seek us out to find a lap to take his nap on, purring loudly the whole time. Porter was very trusting and did not let anything get him down.
Porter was adopted in October and has taken his happy and positive heart to a new family. We’re sure he will weave his magic quickly and his new family will love him as much as we did.
We could all learn something from Porter. Life is not always easy. But if you keep your eyes, ears, and your heart, wide open, the possibilities are endless.
