I adopted my cat Mikka on September 28, 2010 from the Animal Humane Society in Woodbury. Mikka is a one-and-a-half-year-old domestic shorthair tortoise shell colored cat. When I adopted her, she had a common feline upper respiratory infection and weighed a little less then five pounds. Now, six months later, Mikka weighs eight pounds and is very healthy! I was skeptical when deciding on whether or not to adopt Mikka because of her infection, but having spent time with her in the "getting to know you room" I realized that I should not let a treatable infection stop me from adopting something great. Mikka is much more then a pet to me, she is my partner in crime. I moved out of my parents house for the first time about seven months ago and realized the adjustment was a lot harder then I expected. When I saw Mikka, I knew that she was exactly what I needed to join me on my new journey as an adult. When I come home, no matter what time of day, Mikka greets me at the door. When I'm feeling home sick, she senses my sadness and cheers me up. I can honestly say that I did not rescue Mikka, she rescued me! I found my best friend! The picture that I have included will show my little Mikka, curled on top of my bed under a heating blanket in the middle of winter. Talk about spoiled! My advice for individuals who are looking to bring a new furry friend into their homes would be to consider adoption first. So many furry friends are looking for a new home and someone to love. Dont shop, Adopt!
