Misty was a sweet kitty living as a stray cat in someone’s outbuilding. When the local animal rescue was notified, they talked with the owners and learned they didn’t want the cat and were planning to kill her. When she was picked up, to the surprise of everyone, she had five babies hidden under junk in the building. The rescuers rounded up mama and all babies and brought them to the shelter. Misty was very loving and seemed to be calm and content living at the shelter.
She greeted her rescuers every morning with purrs and leg rubs. When her babies were old enough, they were spayed and neutered and each of them a found loving home of their very own. Misty herself was also spayed and found a wonderful, indoor home with plenty of affection and cozy places to lounge.
You could express the greatest act of love this Valentine’s Day by adopting a rescue animal. Adopt from a shelter – it might be the most rewarding thing you ever do.
