ASPCA Happy Tails: Call Me Maeby

When Kaylen and her girlfriend, Lu, decided to adopt a cat from the ASPCA, they knew exactly what they wanted. What they didn’t know, however, was that animal adoptions are not always so straightforward. Sometimes, you choose an animal, but more often than not, the animal chooses you. Here is the very Happy Tail of Kaylen, Lu, and a Tabby cat named Maeby.

“Before walking into the ASPCA,” recalls Kaylen, “Lu and I decided that we wanted a cat that was at least 2 years old. We also agreed that we didn’t want an orange cat.” Sure enough, their plans flew out the window the moment they saw Maeby. An 8-month-old orange kitten, Maeby was the exact opposite of what they were looking for. But the minute they saw her sweet face, they knew there was no other cat for them.

Maeby’s first few weeks at home were trying. She was timid and skittish—a remnant from her earlier life in a hoarding situation—but Kaylen and Lu’s patience and kindness soon brought Maeby out of her shell. Kaylen says, “She is now such a loving, outgoing cat, and she has everyone in our apartment (including our other cat, Rory) wrapped around her paw!”

“It has been a joy to have Maeby in our life and to see her grow more confident over time,” she adds. “We are so thankful to the ASPCA for helping us find the perfect addition to our family!”

Let’s let Maeby’s story serve as a reminder to us all: You can’t always plan for the animal that will steal your heart.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of completely unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being stolen? I'd truly appreciate it.
