Happy 4th Anniversary, Fluffy!

25.Sep.11 New Jersey

On this day in 2007, SAVE (an animal shelter in Princeton, NJ) brought a few cats to this PetSmart, to have them up for adoption. By chance, Hubs and I happened to go into this PetSmart after lunch, just to see some animals. Going to pet shops or pet-sitting was one of favourite past-time, as we didn't have a pet for a 3 years, then.

I was drawn to a really, very unhappy, fluffy Ragdoll sleeping in the bottom cage. He didn't open his eyes.
I was also drawn to a really, very sociable de-clawed tabby cat at a top cage. He played with us!

Normally, we walk out of the shops after having had my fill of "cat time". But this time, Hubs said we *needed* to take one home. That's true, we had to.

That was how Fluffy spent his first evening with us -- hiding. Look at how young, slim, and handsome he was as a 3-year-old :D We did not change his name; Fluffy is Fluffy.

P.S. He was given up to the shelter on his 3rd birthday. How heartbreaking is that?
