Sadie - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Cat

Adopted from Humane Society of Midland County, Midland, MI.

My 7 yr old sons cat had to be put to sleep recently due to health problems so my husband & I decided to let him get another cat. We decided to get a rescue cat so I took my son to Midland County Humane Society to let him pick out a cat. We went through all of the cages with cats & I told him he could pick any cat he wanted. I thought he would for sure pick a kitten but he walked right past them. After much debate & constantly going back to the same cat, he chose Sadie, a 2 1/2 yr old female. I asked if he was sure he didn't want a kitten & his response was, "mama, everyone will pick the kittens, nobody picks the big kitties. I want to save a big kitty & give it a nice home." Sadie is a wonderful cat & has cuddled nonstop with my son & he couldn't be happier with the choice he made.
