Ashlin's Story
-By Ashlin, a 9-month-old, 7lb female Tortoiseshell mix.
--------------------------------------------

Alone. Abandoned like yesterday's trash. Disowned. A girl who got pregnant way too young and was now left all on her own. This is my story....

I was always so loyal to my family. I got to be inside with them and would meow at them every time I wanted something. When I was younger...they thought that I was the cutest thing. Always following them around...always talking to them. I was just a child myself when I met a traveling salesman. He was so handsome and I took things a little too far with him one night. It wasn't long before I realized that I was pregnant. I don't know if that is why my family dumped me on the side of a very busy highway. I don't know if it was for some other reason. All I know is I was initially excited. They never took me places with them so this was a big deal for me. I was excited to be with them, I just adore people and am even sweeter than candy! I never expected that they would stop on the side of the road and let me go. And then drive off. I was TERRIFIED. At first, I stood frozen in place until a semi came by and honked his horn. I took off running. I had no idea where I was going but I ran and ran until I could run no more.

Once I finally calmed down, I realized my nightmare wasn't over yet. I had no idea where I was. I was not a street cat..I did not know the first thing about trying to live in the wild. I have left no choice though. I started exploring and came upon some farm animals and thought I might hang out with them. I tried to make it kill mice but I wasn't fast enough. I wasn't skilled enough and became skinnier and skinnier. One day, I was so busy trying to catch a mouse that I hadn't noticed that a lady had spotted me. She tried calling me, but I took off running. Never again would I trust a human. It was a couple more days before I saw her again, and you can imagine my surprise when she turned around and walked off. It made me curious. I wandered a bit closer to her house and then suddenly she came back out. She had this really yummy smelling stuff. She set the bowl as close as I would let her and then backed up. All it took was one sniff and I devoured that food! Just like that, my faith in people had been restored again. I was still on guard but as the days went by I came by every evening for some pets and food. She always knew when I was around because I would start meowing.

One day she managed to outsmart me. She placed my food in a carrier and I was so hungry that I couldn't resist climbing in after it. As soon as the door was closed, I panicked! I didn't want to be dumped somewhere again. What would happen to myself and my babies? Thankfully all that happened was she brought me inside. I noticed the change right away. It is hard to miss the difference when you go from being super hot to feeling a blast of cold. They brought me in to meet the other animals and cats. I immediately wanted to be friends with the cats...however, they weren't the biggest fans of me at first. That was okay though, I was just happy to be in. I went straight for the dry food and once I was finished found the cat bed and passed out. Some habits never die and as I started to settle in, I started talking. I talked when I wanted attention, food, or when I was feeling lonely. It didn't even take me a day before I started coming out of the cat room and exploring the house. The other dogs didn't phase me at all as I explored.

The next evening, I knew it was time. I knew that I was safe and if there was ever a time to give birth...it was now. So, to my foster mom's surprise, I gave birth to three kittens! I may have been young but my motherly instincts kicked in quickly and they became the most important things to me.

That brings us to the present. My kittens are now six weeks, which means they will be finding their purrfect homes very soon. Knowing that brings me so much joy but now it is time to focus on me. It is time to find my forever family. One that will never let me go. One that will never toss me on the side of the highway like I am nothing to them.

I am such a sweet and loving girl. I love to talk to you and absolutely light up when you pet me. I like being close to my family and seem to love everyone I meet. People, Kids, other dogs, and even other cats. I have such a friendly and outgoing personality and know that I will be an amazing addition to any family.

If you are looking for a talkative, outgoing, and loving girl I hope that you will apply to adopt me at https://www.emailmeform.com/builder/form/Ou094ckcg0moh35sRcH3xN4
