Life with a soft heart!

My husband has a soft spot in his heart for cats and last week, he took on a stray kitten who followed him home from work. It’s the cutest little thing ever – grey with black stripes and the brightest yellow eyes. I fell in love with her instantly. We named her Missy because she was so sweet and pretty, just like a little girl. After making sure that Missy was comfortable, we went out to buy some cat food and a litter box; when we came home, the poor thing was already asleep on the couch. But she sure woke up when she smelled the cat food!
We have no idea how old Missy is and we definitely have to take her to a veterinarian soon so she can get her shots. We also need to make sure she’s in overall good health. Unfortunately, Missy is our first pet and I don’t know any veterinarians. At work the next day, I did a quick search for veterinarians in our area and sure enough, I found a small pet clinic about five minutes away from where we live. I contacted the vet through the website and he responded immediately – if I wanted to, I could take Missy for a check-up that day. I asked my boss if I could leave an hour early so I could bring Missy to the vet, and she was nice enough to say yes.
Despite being a stray cat, Missy was in perfect shape and only needed a couple of vaccines from the vet. She’s sleeping on my lap and purring as I type this…I wish you could see how adorable she is!
