Elvis - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Cat

Adopted from .


For three years I suffered with epilepsy. I knew I only had seizures when I was stressed, but I could not figure out how to relax myself. While stressing out one night over school and work, I went onto Petfinder.com to try and calm myself down by looking at the cute animals. I always wanted a cat of my own but never thought my parents would let me have one, so I would just browse through the animals every now and then. Then one night I saw a beautiful, orange tabby who seemed to be smiling in his picture. I thought he was the cutest cat ever and I had to have him! When I showed him to my parents, they fell in love so we immediately went to the shelter to see him! When I saw him, I fell in love. He immediately came over to me started to play and purr. A couple days after filling out an application for him, we got a call saying he was ours! The moment he arrived at my house, I could feel myself immediately start to calm down and just focus all my energy on him. Ever since then, I have been able to calm down and not stress over things because I know my baby, Elvis, is always there for me. And just in case I do start to stress, he is always by my side and ready to massage my neck! He has also helped me find my true passion in photography. Elvis has inspired me to take photographs of animals and now I'm trying to become a pet photographer. Elvis is always there to strike a pose for me!
