Today is ‘Celebrate Shelter Pets Day‘ on the Shelter Pet Project’s Facebook page. Everyone is helping by posting their happy adoption story, and it’s the sweetest list of names and faces you’ll ever see.
I do have one favorite, though. My mother posted a very special ode to her cat Daphne. Here it is:
Nov 30th is Celebrate Shelter Pets Day and I will be in NY. I celebrate Daphne today. We needed a cat that would tolerate Scottish Terriers and an autistic child. After some positive interaction, we took home Daphne, a beautiful black cat. The first thing she did was set those Scottie’s straight as to who was boss. …Thank heaven for our shelter cat who had enough maturity to survive and thrive at our house.
And thank heaven for mothers too!
