|Our Fluffy Bunny Cat in his window|
I've always been an animal lover, but a severe allergy to cats seemed to have made me a dog person for the majority of my life. Since moving to Jim Thorpe, almost everyone we know seemed to have cats. Since allergy shots never worked for me, I never would have thought that being around cats more often would build up my tolerance. Maybe my body changed, maybe I did build up a tolerance, I really don't know, but what I do know is that one day, I had no real reaction. Which, of course, to me, meant I had a strong urge to adopt a kitty. This was a year ago. We went to Carbon County Friends of Animals after first dealing with a private rescue that left a bad taste in my mouth. There we found "Quinn", or "Quincey" as he was called for the year that he called CCFOA home, we know him as Doyle, but he answers more to "Fluffy Bunny Cat", since that's what we tend to call him more often than not.

Dana, from CCFOA was very helpful in helping us find the right fit for us to make sure when she finds one of their cats a home, it's one they'll have for the rest of their lives. I was very clear on what our lives were like and what we needed in a new family member. With her vast knowledge and care for their cats, she immediately showed us a handful of options that fit our description. One of the cats that we looked at was Abby. Abby was a bit timid for us and I was afraid of our high strung terriers chasing and tormenting her. But I really did have a soft spot for this sweet girl.

I've been in touch with Dana and CCFOA on occasion and during benefits, etc, but yesterday was my first time going to their new location. I will have more information on the new location next week, but for now, I guess, the biggest news for me was that sweet, little Abby still has not found her furever home. How does this happen? Abby has been with CCFOA since 2011 and was estimated to be 1+ years of age at that time. She is good with other animals and is extremely timid, I would think she would be great with kids, but you may want to double check that with the staff if interested in adoption.
