My Journey into Rescue – I Got here for the Cats, however Stayed for the Individuals

I’ve at all times liked animals. The partitions of my childhood bed room had been lined with inspirational cat posters. On the age of twelve, I advised my dad and mom that I used to be a vegetarian as a result of I preferred cute, fuzzy animals greater than I preferred consuming them. Rising up round canines and cats (and the odd rabbit), pets had been an integral a part of our household.

In faculty, I acquired my cat-fix volunteering at an area animal shelter. My official title was “cat-cuddler”, which to this present day is my favourite job title on my resume. After I graduated, I adopted my cat, Squish. She’s a ball of pure rage dwelling inside the physique of a 7 pound grey cat. She dislikes strangers and different animals and can not-so-subtly let me know when she desires consideration by knocking issues off the kitchen desk. She’ll additionally cuddle up with me earlier than mattress, becoming herself completely within the place of “little spoon”. I would not commerce her for every other cat on the earth.

Having Squish in my life has made it fuller, brighter, and happier. I needed to present that pleasure to different individuals, which is how I began volunteering as a cat adoption coordinator with Fortunate Canine Animal Rescue. During the last 12 months and a half, I’ve helped over 130 cats discover their without end houses! It has concerned numerous emails, cellphone calls, and conversations with potential adopters about accountable pet possession. A lot to Squish’s chagrin, I began fostering cats, too!

Alongside this volunteer journey, I discovered an incredible neighborhood and help community of different adoption coordinators and fosters. I am always in awe of the selfless, robust, and compassionate individuals I volunteer with. Whereas I got here into animal rescue to assist cats, I stayed due to the unbelievable individuals.
