My mom and I decided we needed to get a friend for our cat, Poufy, who had been alone since we lost his cat friend, Arnie. Although neither Poufy nor Arnie had come from a rescue, they were both “rescues” as they were strays who adopted us. In November of 2010, I saw on the MHARF website a picture of kitties that had been abandoned at a gas station. The one in the front was a brown tabby that looked right at me and said, “I want to live with you.” I emailed Drew and a few days later I adopted that kitty. After a couple of days Mom (who is 88) decided his name should be “Snoops” since he is such a snoop and is into everything.
Every day when I come home from work Mom tells me everything Snoops did (got into) throughout the day. Mom loves to work jigsaw puzzles and so does Snoops. The problem is that he steals the pieces, so when she finishes the puzzle it may be missing a piece and/or the piece has teeth marks in it! Snoops’ nickname is Little G – he gallops up the stairs, down the stairs, across the room and then up the stairs again! He is a delight and so much fun.
A few months ago I sent an email to Drew with some photos of Snoops and I mentioned I wouldn’t keep bothering her with photos – her response was, “Thank you so much for the update; it’s never a bother to know that an animal is so appreciated, after once being thrown away!”.
Thank you to Drew and all involved for the efforts you all do to help the animals that so need help. Snoops doesn’t have hooves but I’m glad he was on the MHARF website.
