Believe it or not, three years ago Dee Dee was that cat on the left. Most of you already know her origin story, and those who don’t, I encourage to read it.
Having Dee Dee in our life has been an immensely positive experience, and on this day, which we consider her birthday (or adoptiversary,) I like to remind people that there’s a Dee Dee in every abandoned, troubled animal out there and I can’t recommend enough that if you can, then you should go find that animal and adopt it. It’ll pay off for everyone involved.
To many more, Deeds. We all love you very much and we’re glad you made it.
A year ago we rescued him and he was scared of everything. Cars, strangers, music, literally everything. Six months later he went through a stage where he would bite and rip everything apart and every morning at 3am he would run around the house barking waking everyone up and no one knew why. The place where we rescued him called to tell us that many of his sisters and brothers were recently returned because “they were too much to handle”. Another six months later he’s jumping into the tub to take a bath with a silly smile on his face full of love and kisses. What I’m trying to say is never give up on anyone or anything when you believe their/it’s worth it. I promise it’s worth it in the end.
Along with black dogs, they are the least-adopted from shelters, which is heartbreaking because they are the most beautiful pets you will ever own. (Black Labs are my all-time favorite dogs.) They’re graceful tiny panthers, cattitude and all. My family owns a rescue (seen below), and there are plenty more looking for a good home such as yours. :’)
Black cats are NOT bad luck whatsoever. Seriously, we need to get over this outdated superstition nonsense once and for all. >^..^<
This is Mittens. I rescued her when she was 6 years old, and now she is 13. She is the light of my life. I met her during a dark time in my life, when I was struggling with depression and anxiety. She was a sad, scared little thing who hid from everyone and didn’t seem too happy to have been kicked out of her home of 6 years. I understood her, and gave her time and space, offering her treats and toys and a soft bed. Eventually, I earned her love, and working so hard to care for her and being rewarded with purrs and headbutts helped ease my depression. I was doing good. I mattered to her. I was making a positive impact on her life and I needed to keep going, for her. Now, she and I are both healing well. She greets strangers and faces the world with courage. When I am feeling down, she is by my side always. It’s a cliche, I know, but she’s the one who rescued me.
