Mother’s Day Gift: A Cat

Lynne’s guardian angel cat volunteer at Whisker City in Shoreline somehow completed health checkups and paperwork to adopt a cat on Saturday. He is an 11-year-old long-haired, dark-red single-owner cat rescued around the day I called last week. Our family was not prepared. We told Lynne he is her surprise gift for Mother’s Day and arrives on Tuesday. He wrote his own introduction to her for Mother’s Day:

Dear Lynne, my first owner moved into a nursing home and can’t take care of me, so he asked Whisker City to find my new home. Whisker City is in Shoreline Washington with a very good reputation. No matter how much time has passed since you adopted your kitty. We will always take back a cat that was adopted from Whisker City.

Patricia Curry, a volunteer at Whisker City, recommended me as a perfect Mother’s Day present for you on Mother’s Day. You sound like a perfect match for me. My first name was Friskie, but that was 11 years ago and is no longer appropriate because I like to snuggle and cuddle. Please give me a new name that you like. See you soon.
