Welcome to the thirteenth edition of Adoption Tails, our blog series that highlights YOUR pet’s story!
Read on to learn all about Yvette and her cat dad, Regis. As you’ll see in this Adoption Tail, Regis and Yvette are the epitome of a successful “karma” cat adoption … emphasis on “karma!”
When did you adopt Yvette?
November 12, 2018.
How old was Yvette when you adopted her, and how old is she now?
She was two years old when I adopted her, and now she is three years old.
What motivated you to adopt?
My house was empty. I had a cat, Boy, for 21 years and he went over the rainbow bridge. I was not really looking to adopt but I saw Yvette at PetSmart. I saw this beautiful girl and fell in love, I think we bonded right away our eyes met and the rest is history. She is such a joy to have. My little queen.
Did you have pets previously?
I have had several pets over the years. Back in 1996 I was going to the post office and this little furball, Boy, ran out from the shrubs and wrapped himself around my leg. Boy came home with me and two years later another stray, Kid, entered my life, so now I have two. I don’t know why they adopted me, I guess it was karma. I love animals.
How did you hear about/decide to adopt from Karma Cat + Zen Dog Rescue Society?
I was just walking around PetSmart. I went there with the intention of getting a fish tank so I guess it was karma again!
Describe when you first met Yvette and how you knew she was the right pet for you.
Our eyes met and it was love at first sight. Karma again!
Describe bringing Yvette home – how did the adjustment period go?
She took over and I didn’t mind. She adapted to my house right away.
How would you describe Yvette’s personality?
She is the queen.
Please describe any silly/quirky traits Yvette has.
She drools when I brush her and rolls over and lays on her back, paws in the air.
Please provide any additional stories or information that you’d like to tell us about Yvette.
I think a cat brings peace to my life and the love she gives me is great and I return that love too.
