A terrific surprise!

September 22, 2015

This afternoon, I had to do some errands in Newburgh and stopped by the shelter to say hello to Sylvia. She was out and about in the big kitty room and trotted over to greet me when I arrived.


“What a terrific surprise!,” “she said.” “Did you find a forever home for me?


“Not yet little girlfriend,” I said. But I am confident that somebody is gonna flip for you very soon…why with that adorable face of yours and your sweet and gentle disposition, how can anyone miss?? Besides, you are already 6 years old and unlike some of the other kitties, you know just how to behave.  


I truly believe that one day very soon, you’ll be going to your forever home where a family will treasure you for the adorable and sweet little girl you are.


Before I left, I gave her a great big hug and some kitty treats which she shared with the other kitties in the room.
