Adoption Success Story
I wanted to share a little information about Molly, who we adopted from the NMB Humane Society on March 19, 2014.
Tom and I stopped in with the idea of "just looking" for a young cat. All of you were so nice and patient with us, answering our questions and letting us spend time looking at all of your cats and kittens. There were several that caught our eye, but just didn't seem to be "the one" for us. Just as we were getting ready to leave, I noticed a little dark cat in the cage that was next to the floor and right next to the door that led to the outside dog kennels. It was a very busy area, but this little cat seemed to be fairly calm. Her name at that time was "Tippy" and you thought she was about 7 months old. We took her out of her cage and she snuggled up to me as I held her. We then took her out to the reception area to see how she would react to both of us. She seemed quite at ease with us, as well as the other people and animals. It just felt "right" to adopt her then and there. I could not imagine her going to any other home but ours. Before we left, I kissed the top of her head and she just looked up at me with those beautiful green eyes.
We greatly appreciate your assistance in scheduling her surgery at Waterway Animal Hospital, making sure that it fit with our work schedule. We also had her micro-chipped. Your staff and that of Waterway Animal Hospital were absolutely wonderful. We still take Molly to Waterway for her medical needs.
Molly settled into our home immediately. We had been told that she had been fostered by one of your staff, and we believe that really helped her adapt to her new surroundings. Molly looks to be an Egyptian Mau with her smoke color, silver under-coat, spots on her tummy, and green eyes. She loves to be near us, loves to sit in our laps, and loves to play with her toys. She loves her food and treats, too!! Molly worked her way into our hearts at the Shelter and attached herself to our lives as soon as we brought her home. We just wanted you to know that she is doing well, and to thank you for all that you do for these animals that have no home.
P.S. ~ Molly still gets kisses on top of her little head every day.
