I'm currently in school and have had 'hidden' pet mice for the past two years while I was in the dorms. Having recently moved off campus with some friends, I had really wanted to get a large furry friend that I wouldn't have to worry about letting roam the house. After getting permission from my roommates and landlord, I went to the local Humane Society after searching online and looked at the cats they had for adoption. There were several cats, though one little black female was in a room where you could enter and play with her. I stayed in the room with her for a while and left to think over who I wanted to take home. I returned less than a week later and didn't go back for a second viewing - I knew exactly who I wanted to take home with me.
Rewind has grown a bit since I adopted her almost a month ago and she has really flourished. She's a sweet, adorable little trouble-maker and I'm so happy to have her in my life.
