Jeff and I adopted Ansgar (formerly Salem) from the Golden Valley location in October 2006. He was a tiny 4 month old kitten at the time. Having just lost our cat a couple of months before, we were just going to look at the kitties. But as soon as we had Ansgar with us in one of the adoption rooms, we knew he was coming home with us. He was really sick with an upper respiratory infection, but we nursed him back to health.
Ansgar loves to be involved in and 'supervises' everything that goes on in the house. He greets us and visitors at the door. And he's a purring machine - so affectionate!! He also loves playing hockey with ice cubes. I am so glad he chose us as his family!
