Feline Rescue thinks the best way for you to get a feel for the work of the organization and it’s many dedicated volunteers is by letting our adopters (and their cats!) tell their own success stories.
Today we hear from Analuna, who adopted Gilda in June 2016.
Gilda is the biggest and shiniest treasure in my life! She is a tiny, soft, affectionate fur ball who loves to cuddle, talk to me, and follow me around the house. She has a funny internal clock and right around 6 AM everyday she runs around my room meowing and jumping on top of me and rubbing her head on me- but I love her so much it doesn’t even bother me that she wakes me up!
Her favorite place besides directly on top of me is in a window or in the bathtub, which always makes me giggle.
She’s in love with our rat Jupiter, and we’re pretty sure the love is mutual! They sit and stare at each other all day, and we’ll even open the cage to see what they do and they continue to remain calm and happy; they just love being in each other’s presence (and they match- so cute!). She often sleeps next to or underneath Jupiter’s cage.
Plus, now she has a matching ginger buddy who loves to hang out with her and torture her with kisses! As you can see, she’s incredibly tolerant of our never-ending cuddles and love. Even when she’s not dying to be held (which, let’s be honest, half the time she is), she lets you do it anyway because her heart is so big and full of love and affection- even when she’s making her angry face.
Gilda has brought so much joy into my life! I can hardly stand to be away from her. The first day I had to go to work and leave her at home, I made my roommate check on her multiple times and give me updates. I imagined all these terrible things happening to her, and of course when I got home she was sitting on my bed waiting for me.
I had a terrible time trying to adopt a cat for the last couple of years. Odd rejections kept occurring, or miscommunication with shelters and landlords, and I was beginning to think I would never have a cat of my own- my biggest dream! But then I walked into Feline Rescue and the volunteer working listened to my description of a perfect cat, and walked me straight over to Gilda. From that point on I was forever grateful for the struggle it was to adopt a cat and for the rejections and confusion, because I ended up with the best cat in the world. Gilda is so beautiful on the inside and out, and my life with her is forever more positive, filled with more love, more care, and more companionship. Thank you for uniting us!
