Meowmoirs: October 9, 2020 Getting Adopted

Every adopted pet has a start to their journey. The adjustment to a new home, a new family, a new life - it all takes a lot of effort. We, as owners who adopt with the best of intentions, never really know what that adjustment feels like to our pets. 

Well, allow this adopted cat to explain to you exactly what it feels like. 

Welcome to Meowmoirs - the diary of a cat.

His name is Earnie, he's an older cat, and he's been up for adoption for a little while now. But the day has finally come, and he's found a new forever home. Except, does it feel like a forever home to him?

Perfect Pair: Boy With Cleft Lip Adopts Pup With Cleft Lip

We're not crying -- you're crying! 

This is beyond heartwarming! Imagine growing up, feeling/looking different than others, and the moment you go to an adoption center to find your new best friend - they look like you. 

That's exactly what happened when sweet 2-year-old Bentley meet his new puppy. Bentley had already had surgeries for the cleft lip and it isn't even noticeable today. Yet, he came across a puppy that reminded him of himself, and they instantly fell in love with each other. 

The Jackson County Animal Shelter, Michigan, shared this beautiful moment between Bentley and his new puppy on their Facebook, which went viral and racked up 33k shares. 

We wish this perfect pair all the best and many years of love and joy ahead of them!

Girl Makes A PowerPoint To Convince Parents To Adopt A Cat

It's not crazy if it works, right? 

Twitter user, Christopher Doyle, shared with the Twitterverse on August 25th, 2020, that his daughter made a PowerPoint presentation in hopes of convincing her parents to adopt a cat. 

Her PowerPoint presentation hits a lot of excellent points, such as the pros of getting a cat, how she was promised a hamster five years ago and never received one, and overall, just how happy it would make her. Three excellent points, indeed. And after the overwhelming response on Twitter, Christopher Doyle shared an image of a cat adoption slip! That's right -- his daughter is finally getting a cat! 

Congratulations to Christopher Doyle's daughter, and family, a cat is a wonderful addition always.

Power Of Love: Before And After Adoption (21 Pics + 1 Vid)

Love is so incredibly powerful. It can transform anyone and anything, with the proper TLC (tender, love, and care). 

Whenever we come across a before and after images of a neglected animal and the transformation to healthy and happy -- we can't help but get emotional. Do be warned though, some of the 'before' images are quite graphic. We're just so happy someone got them in time to help be their true and best selves. 

We love all adopted faces, and we wish all those lovely animals a loving and happy forever home.
