And in typical Smockity fashion I resist as long as I can...
Until I relent. One can only resist logic mixed with passion for so long, amiright?
That's when I began looking for a kitten. I started on my town's "buy, sell, or giveaway" Facebook page and found a few families who needed to find homes for kittens. These were kittens that were soon to be taken to our local animal shelter if they didn't find homes ASAP.
We found a sweet kitten that just the age we were looking for that had been loved on since birth by some little girls just like ours. I was able to pull a fast one on my unsuspecting daughter and surprise her on Christmas morning with the little fluff ball. She was over the moon thrilled!
Did you know that each year, approximately 3.4 million United States cats are taken in by animal shelters and only half of those cats are adopted? We were so glad to do our little part to make a dent in this number.
