“Just try to be on your best behaviour tonight, okay? Someone is coming in to see you and you might find your forever home.” The volunteer’s voice is coaxing and hopeful that this might work. However Spicy eyes the volunteer with her intelligent gaze as if to say, “I will be the judge of that” and then promptly jumps out of her condo and takes off to the top of the cages to scrutinize the other lowly cats at adoption centre. The volunteer lets out a sigh knowing that Spicy will be Spicy and she alone will decide who is worthy. “

Adopted FRIDAY the 13th

I sat atop a tree house peering down at my subjects below and all the other cats knew not to bother me or play with me. That’s how I wanted it. Being put in my cage at night was very restrictive and the nights were long. I’ve always thought no one would want me because of my ‘spicy’ disposition but there is always that one person who you are meant to be with. It’s not that I don’t like humans; I just don’t like a lot of them at the same time. I am meant to be adored, loved, and an only pet.

I waited a long time for the right owner to come along and when she did, it was love at first sight, I couldn’t wait to see what my home would be like.

She took me home and stayed with me all weekend. We got to know one another. She gave me space and let me go to her when I needed someone. I adjusted very quickly and love my new family.

It has only been two months and I feel like a princess. I have everything a cat could want but, most of all, I have my mom. She feeds me the best food and I get to sleep with her every night. She is always giving me kisses. It’s okay, I guess, and sometimes I really like it. She trains me like I’m a dog (sigh). I must pick up my toys each night and put them under my tree but I always get a nice treat.

Watching Mom

It makes me happy when she’s home all day and not at work but I’ve adjusted to our schedule very well and don’t give her any grief. I like to be in the same room with her and watch what she’s doing.

As you can see, I’ve flourished and grown in just a few months. We are a perfect match and we plan to be together for a long time.

Home at last

      That is great to hear and we are so happy Spicy’s owner believed us when we said Spicy just needed a good home of her own to show just how awesome a cat she was. Thanks.

    Congratulations on your new addition to the family! We were eyeing “Spicy” and wished we could adopt her but we already have another spicy cat that loves being the only child, loved and spoiled by our 2 human children. We couldn’t picture this energetic cat sitting in a cage. So happy you got her. This cat who, like our own, seems more like a dog, brings so much joy- enjoy every minute. We are so happy for all of you!
