Smokey Joe - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Cat

Adopted from Cheatham County Animal Awareness Foundation, Pegram, TN.

On the first of March, I turned my calendar at work and saw this precious black kitten with a blue collar. I told myself I wanted him. [On March 13] while looking on Petfinder, I saw this little black male kitten with a blue bow with his tongue sticking out and thought, That one's got an attitude like me. Then I looked at his name, and it was Smokey Joe. Little did I know that the next morning I would have to put my ailing 13-year-old cat, Smokey, to sleep. I knew at that moment that my Smokey was passing the torch to Smokey Joe to mend my heart. So that evening, Smokey Joe came to live with me in his forever home.
