Before she died, this devoted cat mom made sure to describe her beloved Susie's special traits and needs to the next person who would take care of her next.
In the note, the woman talks about sweet Susie's timid nature, the moment when she thought she might never see her again and their special friendship.
It tells the sweet story of a frightened cat and her human who don't travel much further than their porch and garden. Susie is afraid of everyone and everything, but after 8 months of patience, she finally learned to trust her human.
After the woman passed away, Susie was brought to the animal shelter along with her note. As news of her story spread, hundreds of people contacted the shelter hoping to adopt the little tabby.
Although the Montgomery County Animal Services & Adoption Center was full of loving people who cared for Susie after her surrender, the little cat was just so heartbroken and scared. She tried to escape and hid from the staff.
Despite her confidence being at an "all-time low," Susie has found her forever home with an equally sensitive and gentle soul.
Susie was adopted by an unnamed woman who was touched by the timid cat's story and was certain she could bring her out of her shell.
Congratulations sweet Susie! You deserve this happy ending! Read the full note below, don't forget to Like & Share!
The letter says:
Thank you for adopting my friend, Susie. She was one of three cats in a litter. November 15, 2010 is her approximate birth date. She moved in with me on December 1, 2010.
Until I felt sure she knew where her new home was, I kept her in the house. After she was left out, she disappeared for four days. I thought I would never see her again.
On the fourth night, we had an unusually loud thunderstorm. There was no rain, just noise. That morning, when I went out to call her, I didn't expect to see her, but she came a running. She came in the house with me and has not been willing to go out again unless I go with her. She became an indoor cat.
Susie is afraid of everyone and everything. It took her six to eight months to realize I am her friend.
I have tried for a long time to get her to go outside. She won't do it unless I go with her. Perhaps if I could go for walks with her she would get used to going outside, but I am too unstable to leave my front porch. she will go on the porch as long as I go with her. The best she will do is walk along the garden next to my front porch. I believe she would follow me if I could go for a walk.
It would be nice if she would make friends with our dog. They get along together, but Susie keeps some distance away from the dog. I never worry about them when I leave them in the house together.
Susie is unusual, but I enjoy her company. She is a good snuggler, but she likes to be the boss. She enjoys being petted. She spends much of her time on my bed, but always seems to know where I am. I hope you enjoy Susie as much as I have.
