(um, and if you're a human, give your furry family a squeeze or two)
I recently learned the hard way how life can change dramatically in the blink of an eye. You see, I lost everything - EVERYTHING - in a fire. My humans and I are now homeless."
"No cat expects to be 16 years old and suddenly end up in a kennel, particularly not when he has spent every one of those 16 years sleeping next to his people in their bed. But here I am.
My family isn't sure how things will turn out or what their future holds, so they thought it might be better if some kind human would take me into their home. You know, instead of any more traumatic upheavals while things are so up in the air.
Besides, I didn't come out completely unscathed. I suffered some burns on my paws, and some smoke inhalation. No worries -- I've healed well, and I've even settled in well, here at the shelter. But I'd sure love a cozy home instead. I miss cuddling with my humans every evening."
Won't you please come in and see if we might make a good team?
