Adoption Diaries: Learning to Stay Positive Thanks to a Wise Old Cat
Elyse’s Adoption Diary:
My favorite lap cat was adopted! Remember Sherbert, from the “funny faces” post? Now there’s a cat I respected and admired. He was an eternal optimist, even though life threw a whole lot of challenges his way.
Our Humane Law Enforcement cops rescued Sherbert back in October. They found him emaciated, abandoned, and suffering from multiple untreated medical conditions. But at 9 years old, he had gained wisdom with age. Somehow, he seemed to know it would all work out.
Sherbert did not lose faith in human beings. In fact, the opposite was true. It was on human laps where he found the comfort he sought. He worked his way into the hearts of our shelter staff one lap at a time.
Sherbert, good luck in your new home. Here’s hoping you found your lap of luxury, my fuzzy funny face! Thanks for always staying positive. We can all learn a thing or two from you.

Life is short, so let’s make time for love. Make sure your kitty gets a quick kiss on the head every time you walk by his lounge spot.
