Love at First Paw

Tara Munoz had never shared her home with a cat before, but when she and her husband visited the ASPCA Adoption Center in Manhattan, she quickly met her first feline match. The couple adopted a friendly cat named Caesar, and it was love at first paw. She shared the following story with us:

In December 2012, my family and I adopted Caesar from the ASPCA in New York City. He adapted very well to our home, and we think he is the "purrfect" addition.

The adoption process was very thorough, informative and the volunteers were great.When we were looking at the cats inside the cat room, Caesar came down from his post and up to my husband. He rubbed against him and offered his paw—it was the cutest thing I have ever seen. Caesar stole my heart from that moment on. He chose us!

Caesar loves to play with his toys, and he always makes us laugh the way he plays with his scratching post. I've never had a cat before, but my husband had cats throughout most of his childhood life. Adopting Caesar has definitely been a wonderful learning and loving experience. Caesar has brought me joy and happiness that I could never imagine.

Thanks to the ASPCA for their service. Caesar is the best!
