Entrant's First Name
KaryssaYour Pet's Rescue Story
We needed each other. It was a hard adjustment leaving my childhood home to move into a place of my own. I had gone from a very eventful house to a much quieter setting. With my working from home and my husband having to leave for work I found myself lonely and depressed as if parts of me was chipping away and I had no way to stop it. It was my sister's idea to get a pet and to this day I am grateful I took her advice.
After the decision was made, I went to the shelter with my mom. There I saw many adorable cats of all shades and sizes however, I did not see any that seem to really connect with me. I was nearly about to give up when I heard my mom call my name from behind me. I turned around and saw a little grey kitten who had stuck her paw out of the cage as I walked by. She gave a little meow and I was in love. I held her for a mere five second and knew instantly she chose me just as much as I chose her.
She got accustomed to her new surroundings very quickly and to this day follows me around the house. Alyssa was the best companion I could have ever asked for. When she came into my life, I felt like my self again, as if she had found the piece of me that had been lost in the shuffle of quarantine, moving and changing job. She needed a home and I needed her.
