Blog #6- I Didn’t Think I Could Love Another Pet

Happy Easter everyone! How are you all holding up in this quarantine? I am going a little stir crazy. Anyway, I’m bringing you another blog post today because it is my cat’s first adopt-iversary. Let me explain the title.

My family got my first cat, Ally, when I was about one years old. Even though I annoyed the heck out of her, she was my pet, my love, and the one thing that made me happy when nothing else could. I loved coming home to her everyday and kissing her and just talking to her like she was my sister.

Fast forward to 2018 and she was 20 years old. That’s a long time to have a cat in your life. She’s part of the family. When we had to put her down on August 4th, 2018, I was shattered. We lost one of my family members.

For while we had no pet, which I was fine with. We were still mourning our baby girl. Then, my mom told me that there was a cat up for adoption and I still wasn’t ready to give my heart away yet.

In comes Dewey. On April 12th, 2019, we adopted him and he made himself at home right away. At first, I was against the idea but once I saw him, I couldn’t ignore him.

He fit in right away and is now part of our family. One year later, and I know now that I needed another pey to fill the void. I will never forget Ally ever, but I needed another furry friend to get me through the bad days and make me smile when I get home.

So, I am so glad we decided to adopt you Dewey Nox. You are forever a part of our family. Happy one year adopt-iversary/6th birthday. We love you!
