After losing Finley last November, I took the plunge yesterday and went to a no kill cat shelter and adopted Mia. She is a 3 year old Maine coon mix and has one of the sweetest personalities I have ever seen in a cat. She has TONS of hair.
I thought cleaning up after Josie was bad.
I had looked at the shelters website so many times and had written down the names of 7 other cats I wanted to look at yesterday. Mia was not one of them. After holding about 10 cats, I went into the room where Mia was located and she instantly ran over to me and her motor was just a running. She purred the whole time I was holding her and never asked to be let go. I was hooked!
She took the 30 minute drive home all in stride and proceeded to check out every single room in my house when we walked in. She is still a little unsure about Josie, but I'm seeing lots of progress in the past few hours. I know that takes time. Josie is a bit jealous, so I'm spending lots of quality time with her today. It helps that Mia prefers my sister's bedroom (my sister lives with me) instead of mine. That is still Josie's space.
The most unique thing about Mia is that all four of her paws are different colors.
You can see the front two in the pictures.
Just wanted to share Mia with all of you!
Looking forward to many years with this beautiful girl.
