Things however went terribly south for my family in Wadsworth. During my vacation, my childhood dog suffered a sudden illness, and we had no choice but to euthanize him. I was devastated. A couple of weeks later now into August, my childhood cat, who was 19, let us know it was her time and we let her go as well. I was completely heartbroken; the whole family was.
I went back to Petco and to my surprise saw that Friendly and Monkey Boy were still there. I called Ethan and said I would love to adopt these cats more than anything. I know that sounds like I’m jumping the gun after losing 2 childhood pets back-to-back, but these cats are still here and I think it’s for a reason. He agreed and later that day filled out the application for both Monkey Boy and Friendly.
Not even 24 hours after submitting my application, I got a phone call saying how ecstatic they were that I was interested in both cats and that based on the application, they would be happy to allow me to adopt them!
We picked the cats up that weekend, and the rest is history! The cats adjusted within hours. Monkey came out of his shell within days and became the hugest cuddle bug around. Friendly, whom we renamed Zora, has the hugest personality. Both cats love anyone that walks into the house and are the kindest souls. But more than anything, they love each other. I am thankful that they both came into Ethan and my life. They bring us so much happiness!
