Wow! One year ago this month, I adopted my new family at the NEAS. I remember the young woman stopping by my cage and I could feel her sadness, so I rubbed my face against her hand and gave her my “It’s going to be okay” look. I even tried to use some telepathy to tell her that she needed me and I wanted to adopt her.
I didn’t know her beloved cat had recently passed away and left a void in her heart. I was sad when she shook her head and walked out of the room with tears in her eyes, but a few minutes later she CAME BACK and said that I WAS THE ONE! Yay, my softness and cuteness (and telepathy) worked!
I was originally named Dante, but my new forever name is Mr. Thackery Binx (from Hocus Pocus). My family includes my human Mom, my human 2 year old boy (my best-est friend), my human grandparents and a dog that always wants to be my friend (don’t tell anyone, but I actually think she’s a cool canine). I love them all, but I especially love to play and cuddle with my boy. I like to follow him around and sometimes I even play with his toys.
And I never knew how much fun it is to ride in the car! Many weekends as soon as I see my carrier, I know that I’m going to the Cape house! There I have another bed and toys and a great enclosed porch with lots of windows where I can sun myself, intently watch those pesky birds and enjoy my world. We all have so much fun there too.
My family … they’re so good to me … I’m glad I chose them!
