Khaleesi - A Petfinder Happy Tail

From Carly of Waldwick, NJ
It was a year ago that my fiancÃ© and I had agreed on adopting a kitten. We had talked for weeks about â€œthe perfect kittenâ€. It was going to be female, very young, and mostly white with blue eyes. We visited numerous shelters and organizations looking for this kitten. About a month later I decided to visit the Bergen County Animal Shelter in Teterboro, NJ. It became abundantly clear that there were hundreds of cats that needed forever homes. I told myself right there and then that I was not leaving that shelter without adopting a cat. I walked through multiple rooms looking for a cat or kitten that caught my eye, and there she was. Her name was Courtney. She was gray and white with green eyes and fully grown. I quickly sent my fiancÃ© a picture of her while I waited for staff to open her cage. When staff opened her cage door and reached in to pick her up, she hid immediately toward the back of her crate. I was starting to wonder if maybe she wasnâ€™t the right cat for us after all. The staff stepped aside and I knelt down to gently rest my hand near the front of her cage. She came quickly to my hand and walked right into my arms. I was sold, I couldnâ€™t fill out the paperwork soon enough. She is the smartest, most caring and loveable cat I have ever met and Iâ€™ll never forget the day I adopted her.
