Today, with many others, the lucky ones, we’re joining in on the #RememberMeThursday Blog Hop. Thanks to Christina at the Helen Woodward Animal Center for our promotional goodie bag, the catnip pillows are wonderful too!
This is a special event that occurs annually and helps us all remember those shelter pets still there, still waiting for their forever home. Okay, like we could only do that annually. We remember them all each and every single day. It’s important and has been my cause ever since I was adopted from a shelter in 2008.
Prior to Brother Simon and Sister Seal, who are our feral adoptees, everyone here came from a shelter. We know we are the lucky ones, we know it with all our hearts. You see, I was adopted because, and only because the Mom remembered me. I was a kitty nobody wanted, waiting in the shelter for nine months, watching others come in and then leave for their forever homes.
The Mom spotted me early on but couldn’t get the Dad to come see me because the loss of the kitty Moses was just too raw. But the Mom remembered me, she remembered I was in the shelter, still waiting. She came to visit me and checked on me weekly. When I was adopted into an abusive home, the Mom remembered me. The shelter staff repossessed me and when I came back to the shelter, them Mom popped in and was happy to see me, she remembered.
Finally the Dad caved, he came to see me, I came home shortly after that, just three days before Christmas, because the Mom remembered me. We all, as the lucky ones, need to do our part. Remember those in the shelters still waiting. Do something to help them, something, anything. You’ll change a life forever, and we’ll all be thankful for that. Please pause to remember those special souls who never made it out of the shelter, they so deserved a better life.
