Happy 6th Gotcha Day to Pandora and My Birthday!
6 years ago today, I was supposed to adopt a different cat through a private rescue. Unfortunately, the day I was supposed to drive out to get him it all fell through. I received an email that he wasn't neutered yet and didn't even have any vaccines. The owner of the "rescue" had lied to me and at the last minute told me she would not be able to adopt him out. I was really upset and felt that she was being seriously shady because as far as I knew from everything she told me, he was good to go.
It was my birthday and on a whim, I stopped by the local animal shelter in Reno with a friend. We wandered around and looked through all the cages and the very last one, there was a filthy, little green eyed kitty wanting to make friends with me. It was love at first sight and in that moment I knew that everything, absolutely everything happens for a reason. Pandora was meant to be mine.
Pandora is my heart kitty. She is the reason I was able to pick myself up and move on after Chloe passed away. She is truly a beautiful spirit. She's fun and loving. Everyone who has ever met Pandora has fallen in love with her. She's the best cat I've ever had.
Happy 6th Gotcha Day little girl!
