Entrant's Name

A little about me...
A young, un-neutered, but very friendly cat wandered into the stairwell of my Alexandria apartment building on a cold winter night in 2021. A neighbor saw him, and gave him food and a blanket to sleep on, but didn't want to keep him. In the morning, I found the cat on the blanket in front of my neighbor's door. I asked what happened, and if I could take the cat to the shelter. COVID precautions were in effect, but I was able to make an appointment for later that day to take him in. During the three hours the cat was with me, I fell in love. He purred and meowed loudly, and climbed all over me. I had been wanting a cat, but was in the middle of a very stressful time moving my mother into assisted living, and didn't think I could manage the added commitment. After I surrendered "Lloyd" (now Jack) at AWLA, I cried all the way home thinking about him, and I checked the website every day to see if he had been claimed. After his "stray hold" was up, I registered to adopt him. The AWLA vet determined he would always need a special prescription diet for issues with his urinary tract, and I was happy to commit to that. I scheduled another appointment -- this time to take my boy home with me forever. I renamed him "Jack." Jack enjoys indoor parkour, playing fetch, and making biscuits with Mommy.
