Rose & Mittens - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Cat

Adopted from York County SPCA, York, PA.


Having lost our beloved dog of 14 years a little over a year and a half ago, we have been constantly assailed with "when are we getting another dog" from our daughters. ...Fast forward to now, we had just returned from visiting family in Louisiana that had three cats and now daughter an the girls were clamoring for cats. They were very specific in their requests. One wanted a black and white cat with white paws so she could call her Mittens. The other ted a calico to name Rose. We the parents wanted two cats that got along together. Several days after returning home, we found ourselves at the York Co. SPCA to drop off a $33 donation that our girls and the neighbors had raised with a lemonade stand. What were the odds that we would find three month old sister cats; one black and white and the other calico in the same cage? Needless to say, we have started a new adventure as cat owners.
