A wonderful tub full of kitties. But why? Three of our lovely cats are rescues, one is a temporary foster we've taken in.
All our cats have stories, some more sad than others.
Moriarty is a F2-3 Savannah/Siamese. He looks much more siamese than savannah and was sold at a much cheaper price than the rest of his litter. His human mom loved him dearly but he seemed to be a little destructive. He loved to claw couches and hop into the shower with his mom. After several month the woman's husband insisted she get rid of her dream cat because his leather couch was getting ruined. They dropped him off at the local shelter and there he sat for almost a full year.
When I was on post several of my friends volunteered at the local shelter. They posted pics of him on facebook and snap chat and couldn't stop talking about how beautiful he was. My husband and I had to have him. The shelter staff was ecstatic when we came to pick him up and handed us a letter his surrendering family had written. It was bittersweet but told us a lot about him. He is now 3 and a half and already a grumpy old man.
