My day started out as it always does. I got on my computer and looked at the Craigslist classified listing for pets. I always feel so bad when I see all the pets that people have to rehome. My cat Mista, who I had for 17 years, recently passed away and I was looking for a cat that looked like him. I was looking and looking and looking and finally I saw a cat that was up for adoption through a rescue organization but was scheduled to be euthanized that very day.
I immediately emailed them and told them that I wanted to adopt the cat. I just had to have that cat. She looked just like my Mista who passed away.
At this point the cat was at the pound and the rescue group said that they would call and hopefully they would not be too late. Well low and behold, the cat was on the table just about to be euthanized. They actually took her off the table where she was about to take her last breath.
I was at work when my husband called me and said, “Your package arrived!” The rescue group had driven the cat from the shelter in Manhattan to Staten Island, NY where I lived at the time. When I got home, I named her Destiny. She is a great cat and my heart feels so good that I helped her.
