We received this beautiful email this weekend and thought we would share it with you….
Hi Volunteers of AC PAW,
In 2007 you rescued a family of orange kittens, and on the day I stopped in to get food and litter for my own rescue, I saw a kitten alone in a cage that read, “Please adopt in pairs.”
I asked you about him, and why cats should be adopted in pairs, and one of your volunteers explained to me that it’s actually a common misconception that cats are loners, and they love company. It broke my heart that he was alone so I adopted him from you and named him Pumpkin. You took care of all his shots and his neuter, and let me give him a home, so thank you.
My only other cat (his name is Morn) is one I had rescued myself. I had no idea about the work of rescue volunteers or how many cats really need our help. I have since moved to Toronto and now volunteer my time at the local Toronto Cat Rescue. Pumpkin is all grown up now, and super cuddly and in my home of two other cats.
I just realized today that I never had a chance to thank any of you, because it didn’t really hit me until I was living here that you saved a life. A very important one to me and I never had a chance to follow up with you and thank you for doing so. I wouldn’t know what to do if Pumpkin wasn’t a part of our family.
Thank you so much for rescuing Pumpkin and giving him a home with me.
Sara (& Pumpkin)
