Make a happy ending

Our family has now adopted its 3rd pet from the RSPCA. It was heartening to see that our local branch was so busy yesterday and we were glad we had got there early. Ther person getting the cat had looked after my sister’s RSPCA cat for 6 months while she was in hospital and recovering, but then the day came when the cat had to go home. It was sad. So we rallied to get him an early birthday present and he could look forward to it and that helped pass the time until our Cat Day came. There were a lot of people and a lot of cats. The dog side of the RSPCA was doing well, too, so Adelaide had opened its hearts to owning new pets and everyone was happy and excited down there. The workers were run off their feet but very helpful. We had gone in to get an older female cat but this cat was so loveable, so intelligent and so alert. He didn’t react to me much but he reacted to my daughter and his new owner. As soon as he came close the cat was there and so keen to make contact. So we went into the introduction room and the cat sat happily with the new owner and then was ready to explore. He loved the trip in the car to his new home and appears to have settled in well. For this person, they discovered by kindly fostering my sister’s cat that they needed a pet of their own because it made such a difference to them. We had such fun on adoptapet looking for a new cat and it’s a great addition to the RSPCA site. My last two dogs have come from the RSPCA and they have both been lovely. Pets are not for everyone but if you get one and love it , they make such a difference and create happy endings!
