When I decided it was time to bring a furry friend into my life I went to the local animal shelter. When I went into the feline room it was quiet. As I stood at the threshold looking from kitten to kitten I heard a rattling. It sounded as if one the cats were trying to break free of the cage they were in. I looked over and saw all this soft gray fur sticking through the grate door of one of the cages. I thought that it couldn't possibly be a cat. I stepped closer and Sasha turned around in the cage. I took her out and held her in my arms. She just gazed at me with bright green eyes and purred. I knew she was the one. I was told that she was found under a porch. She had been abandoned by her previous owners and the shelter was worried that she would never find a home. I told them her home was with me. She spends a lot of her time now on my balcony gazing at the neighbors with the same bright eyes that captured me. -Tracey S.
