Phoebe and Hurley: Super Snuggly Felines

Jennifer B. and her husband visited the ASPCA Adoption Center to adopt a pair of kittens, but kept an open mind and ended up with a two special adult cats with lots of love to give. Jennifer shared her adoption story with us:

We came to the ASPCA looking for kittens and were determined to let the cats choose us. The kittens we met were not a perfect fit for us, so the Adoptions staff asked if we'd like to see some adult cats. We ended up finding our babies in the last cat room—a room full of kitties that had been rescued from a hoarding situation in Brooklyn.

We sat down and waited to see if any of the cats would show interest in us. Phoebe was a little skittish but came right up and started pawing at me for attention. Hurley woke up from a nap and took a minute before claiming a spot on my husband's lap. We thought: This must be them. They chose us.

I was a little worried that visiting the ASPCA might break my heart when I realized I couldn't take them all home. But my anxiety subsided when I saw how nice the Adoption Center is and how well the animals are cared for.

Phoebe and Hurley are two of the most affectionate cats I have ever been around. They love attention and are very social with guests. Phoebe has turned into a little lap cat, while Hurley loves to snuggle. They have fans all over Astoria, and across the country, for that matter. We love them more than words can say.

At this time the old man came to his senses and . truly no, he totally fired back. Cutrufelli, last but not least remembering that his spirit animal is definitely a scaredy cat, begged Leone to spare his life, pleading, "Don't kill me, I have received a daughter!" Leone, currently being a kindly previous gentleman at heart, responded by emptying his weapon in him anyway. He even presented a classic line for the film about his existence that desperately has to be manufactured: "Fuck you! Pow pow pow pow!"
