Take Two - We're Small...and Cute!
My name is Cookie and my sister, Kiera and I came to Cat Depot when our owner had to move. We were heartbroken - we thought we would be living out our golden years together in our comfortable, safe home. We are both 11 years old and it’s very scary to have to start over at this stage in our lives.
It’s been quite a change for us and being the new kids on the block wasn’t easy – especially for Kiera. She was terrified of everything so I played the part of the protective “big” brother and I made sure no one bothered her. But she was still so frightened that she would just stay in her bed all day. Then she started to get “bed sores” on her legs from staying in one place, so I got worried. I talked to the volunteers and staff here and asked them if we could find a quieter environment for us so that Kiera could have a chance to get acclimated and be less stressed.
So we now reside in Miss Lynn’s office. It’s very comfortable here and Kiera is coming out of her shell. She’s started to venture out from her bed under the desk and is even purring and rubbing against people – just like the old Kiera! And me? Well I’ve been having a great time exploring and hanging out with Miss Lynn. I’ve been assisting her with her work and she says I’ve been a big help.
Now that we are feeling much more secure, we are ready to find a new home. We definitely need to be adopted together because Kiera needs me and, although I don’t like to admit it, I need her just as much. I don’t know what I would do without my sister.
Ever the worrywart, Kiera thinks that we’ll never find a home because people don’t know that we are here. We are sort of hidden away, but I know that if I get the word out, people will find us. We have so much love to give and it would be a waste for us not to share it. So please come meet us and spend some time with us – Miss Lynn doesn’t mind at all; she said she likes the company.
