This post is my entry into the BlogPaws Blog Carnival Contest sponsored by BISSELL Homecare, Inc.
I had been surrendered by my family to a Kansas City area shelter. They said I was an "attention hog". They said I was jealous of the other cats in the house. They said the recent move upset me.
I was lonely and sad living in the hug room at the shelter. The volunteers were very kind to me though. One in particular, named Cat, loved me a lot and was thinking about adopting me. Another volunteer had the same thoughts. That volunteer came back the day after we first met and told me she was taking me home with her! That volunteer is now my Mom. I felt a little bad, because Cat was so nice, but things have worked out beautifully.
See, Mom needed me as much as I needed her. She was living in a new city and was all alone. She didn't have any friends or family nearby. She works from home, so she didn't even have any coworkers to talk to. She was lonely and sad living in her little apartment.
When I moved in, we took away the loneliness for each other. She let me start my Twitter account and my blog. We started meeting people and anipals online. A lot of those online friends have turned into real life friends. Mom lets me know everyday that I am loved and I do the same for her. Life is much brighter for both of us now.
These days, Mom and I blog about adopting pets. It's more than giving a homeless pet a home. Sometimes it can really turn someone's life around. It did for Mom...and for me.
