Another happy adopted baby!

Scooter (formerly known as Luke) adopted by Laurie on 07/30/2016

For the past 30 years, my husband and I have adopted cats, kittens, and even a couple of dogs from various shelters and foster care. We’ve cared for and eventually adopted feral cats in our neighborhood, having them spayed or neutered.

During the span of one week in July, three of our indoor/outdoor adopted strays went missing, as well as our adopted Maine Coon who used to just stay in the yard. We were truly devastated, not knowing what happened to them. We shudder to think that someone in our neighborhood could do something to our furry babies… We miss them dearly.

This left us with just two cats — our oldest female of 12 years old, and a 1-year old female who was among the last litter born in our neighborhood before we caught the mother and had her spayed. The 1-year old wanted to play with the oldest cat, but she had no interest in playing. She also wanted to play with the dog, but he didn’t seem interested, either. We wanted to comfort the little girl and give her a little playmate. We missed watching her play with her big sister and her mother.

July 30th, we went to the Humane Society and found a playful and happy little boy named Luke. Within just a few days, he was completely at home, running everywhere and purring constantly! As he scooted from room to room, under our feet, on and in everything, the name Scooter just seemed natural.

In less than one week, our 1-year old girl began to play with Scooter, and as of today, three weeks later, they’re now best buddies! Even our 12-year old cat and the dog like him! Scooter is the happiest little buddy we’ve had in years. He sleeps with us, runs to me when I walk through the door after I come home from work in the evening, and he’s incredibly playful.

Thank you, Humane Society, for helping to rebuild our happy little family of pets. We do our best to take care of them, and in return, they give us so much unconditional love.
