After 651 Days, Sidney Finds Her Forever Home!
I'm Sidney and I was the longest resident at Cat Depot. A few weeks ago, I put out a plea to find my forever human (read my story below), never realizing just how far my story would travel.
Little did I know it, over one thousand miles away in Chicago, a kind man would read my story. My story affected him and he contact his friend in Florida and said he wanted to adopt me!
I couldn't believe it! I was going to finally have a forever home!
The adoption paperwork and travel arrangements took less than a week, but to me it seemed like forever. I just couldn't wait to see my new dad! Cat Depot used something called Frequent Flyer Miles....I'm not sure what those are, but with them I was able to fly with a very nice lady named Nancy Colby.
So today was the day. Nancy arrived very early and played with me for a while so that I would be calm for my big adventure.
I had my pre-flight meal. I ate it all - I didn't know what kind of food they would have for cats on the plane. I've heard they have peanuts - yuck! Cats don't like nuts.
Then I was fitted with something red and constraining. It wasn't so bad. I figured when they weren't looking, I could Houdini my way out of it anyway.
Next came something that I'm not proud of.
I saw the carrier there. I sort of figured I was going to have to go into it. But I still wasn't happy about it. I told them not to take pictures of that episode.
When I was finally in the carrier, I settled down. I checked it out and it seemed ok.
Then it was time for me and Nancy to take off. We were ready!
I want to thank everyone who was pulling for me to find a home. And all of the staff and volunteers at Cat Depot who visited with me and took care of me. I will always remember you. And very special thanks to the wonderful man who will be my new dad!
I'm excited for this new chapter in my life!
So, this is it - off we go! I'm on my way, Dad!
