Hello everyone! Happy Saturday!
I hope that everyone is enjoying their weekend. Today on my blog I’m doing a very special blog post on our cat Buttons. Now most of you see lots of photos of her on my instagram and Facebook page. Today happens to be her adoption anniversary. I wasn’t able to do anything last year on my blog because Matthew and I were away this times last year. Anyways so it’s been two amazing years since we brought our special little girl home with us. When we brought her home two years ago she was only ten months old and she was so scared. When we went to go pick her up from The Cat Therapy & Rescue Society they had told us that she had lost her mother when she was either two or three days old, so they had to bottle feed her and her siblings. They had also told us the bottle fed babies are usually the best ones to adopt because they are used to being held and being around people. When we brought Buttons she was so shy and scared that she didn’t want anything to do with us for the first couple of days and then she finally came out of her shell.
Now fast forward to now she loves to play fetch, loves to cuddle and she is also very loving as well. Buttons loves her treats and is also very food motived. Buttons has completely changed our life for the better. I know for me it was very important that I have an animal around because I suffer with depression and she has helped me while I really struggle through the winter months or even if I’m just having a bad day just getting to cuddle with her makes it that much better. She has also made it better when ever Matthew goes away on a trip without me because that’s when I would get very lonely and my depression would make it worse for me. Now whenever Matthew is away on trips I have my little girl to keep me company.
Matthew can’t imagine our life without her. Adopting Buttons was one of the best decisions that we have ever made besides getting married. Getting to give an animal a home that needs a home is so rewarding. Not only did we rescue Buttons she rescued us. I would tell anyone who wants to get their own pet to rescue instead of buying from a breeder. Not only are you saving an animal life by adopting but you’re also helping the shelters that are in need that might be full. If you can’t adopt but you really want to help your local shelter I would say to donate to them or go and volunteer.
Well that’s all for today’s blog post. I hope you enjoyed reading it today. I also want to thank you for taking time out of your day to read my blog. I hope that everyone has a good day and enjoys the rest of the weekend!
