Happy Tails: New Year, New Home

After Denise’s 19-year-old cat, LeMew, passed away, she wasn’t interested in getting another companion. But as time went by, she missed the warmth and love of a feline friend. After six months, she knew it was time to adopt again. Here is her Happy Tail:

I first spotted Francis on Petfinder.com. When his picture popped up, I just knew he was the one. My husband and I were getting ready to leave town for the holidays, but I emailed about Francis anyway. I crossed my fingers that he would still be available when we returned. The day we got back, I called the shelter and sure enough, he was still there! We drove out to the Kiski Valley Cat & Kitten Rescue in Apollo, Pennsylvania, and it was love at first sight. The frightened 9-month-old was put into my arms, and there was no way I was going to leave without him. Francis came home with us and today, he is a happy boy. Rescuing an animal is the best possible way to start the New Year off right!

If an unowned (commonly known as "feral") cat has been fed and looked after for over seven years, is that cat considered a "rescued" cat?
