found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and declawed.
This precious and scared little lady was left at our doorstep- alone and in a crate that afforded her little room to lift her head or move around. Yet another animal whom a myriad of other possibilities could have awaited her...heavy rains could have drenched her tiny living quarters. Someone could have walked by and made off with a new bait target. She could have flipped and busted open her carrier in a fit of panic and been prey to whatever fate lay among the open road and woods.
What happened in Justice's past to warrant an unceremonious dumping is a mystery. Look into her sweet eyes. This girl couldn't hurt a fly, no matter how scared she is. In fact, if you sit with her for just a few seconds, she will bravely decide to check you out with purrs and nuzzles.
Sadly, that kind of love has not been shown to Justice in a long time. Her fur was littered with mats of all sizes and all throughout her distinguished coat. This girl would be a regal beauty with a fully brushed and glossy mane- the kind of soft silky fur you could run your fingers through. Instead, when you pet Justice, it was a very jerky motion as you encountered mat after mat. Her nails were left unclipped as well, so for her, it was as if she was walking on a very painful set of high heels.
Justice is one of the rare kitties that we've taken in where a microchip was in place. However, the information linked comes to a dead end as far as an owner is concerned. Home used to be somewhere in Illinois. Now, it is a kennel in a shelter with strange faces, sounds and smells.
Where did things go wrong? 13 years ago, someone looked at her little face and already planned how she would fit in the family....someone probably saw her as a quiet and doting companion in the future- once her playful kitten antics were outgrown, she was probably envisioned as a cuddly and snuggly little lapwarmer.
It's hard to see what her cardinal sin was. Was she too sweet? Too affectionate? How someone can give up on a furry companion- especially one that they CHOSE. Justice didn't magically jump from an Illinois shelter into someone's home- they came to her and wanted her in their life. How do you take back that unspoken offer of forever? When do these defenseless creatures stop becoming family members?
Until that next openhearted person comes along and asks to make Justice a part of their life, we are happy to say that we will be gladly be her new family. It's not the same as giving her a cozy house with windows and beds to snuggle on, but when we come in in the morning, we are happy to start each day knowing she is in it. The world is a better place because of her, and for that, knowledge is the best....justice.
