||Two and a half years old|
is the first cat we got, and she came from a shelter. We researched
online beforehand and she stood out. When we arrived to the shelter, we were
initially disappointed because she was nowhere to be found, and we thought
that she may have been adopted by another family. Just when we were preparing
to head back home and come back next time reading happened past the sick room
- and there she was, being treated with a cold. We took her home that same
day and nursed her back to health. And here she is, with all her adorable quirks.
Ada is the very definition of our idea of "perfect." She is a sweet,
mild-mannered cat and loves to play, but would rather curl up on my lap and
get rubs. It doesn't take much for her to turn into a purring machine. She
takes bath time and grooming like a lady, and loves to be walked around the
yard, chasing bunnies and butterflies in the sunshine. Every time I come home
from work she is by the door, demanding cuddles when I walk in.
She loves to catch bugs, so at the end of the day before going to bed she
will look around the bedroom inspecting for creepy-crawlies and when
satisfied, will settle beside me in bed and will stay with me until I fall
asleep. Sometimes she will walk over to my pillow and nuzzle my neck to let
me know she wants to get under the sheets and snuggle. Ada is the best cat I
could ever ask for.
She participated in the Mice Bucket Challenge, to raise awareness to support
our local shelter? She donated! Here's her official YouTube video -
