If you’re one of those who think that cats are not capable of helping others, well think again! I advise you to read this inspirational story that will definitely change your mind!
Peter, a beautiful male ginger cat, didn’t always have an easy life or a fur-ever home, but once he found one, he then helped many other cats find loving homes and families.
Peter spent seven months at the Genesee County Animal Shelter Dogs and Cats and he patiently waited for his special person, never losing hope.
The saddest thing was that no one actually knew how sweet, lovely, and affectionate Peter was. So, the shelter staff decided to help him.
They took some photos of him and shared them so that everyone could see that he is a special cat with a unique personality and lots of great features, hoping that they would find him a forever home.
To everyone’s surprise, the photos of Peter they shared on Facebook immediately went viral.
In the post, Peter was described as a “big love” with unique face markings and a great personality who enjoyed cuddles and talks. That post received over 10,000 shares!
After his post went viral, people suddenly started showing up at the shelter and asking about Peter. The shelter staff were amazed by the huge response.
This showed that Peter immediately stole everyone’s hearts on the internet, especially when around 30 people arrived before noon! Still, they needed someone who would be a perfect match for Peter.
Finally, they found a winner! It was Melissa Graham, the first person that arrived at the shelter to meet Peter. She was looking for a feline friend, and when she saw Peter, she knew that they were meant for each other.
As soon as Melissa took Peter, he cuddled up in her arms and let her know that he chose her, too. It was love at first sight!
So, how did Peter’s story help other cats get adopted? I was wondering the same thing when I first heard about this story.
People kept arriving at the shelter to see Peter, but after finding out that he was adopted, they would start looking at other cats that were available for adoption.
Everyone who arrived at the shelter and who heard Peter’s story was inspired and wanted to give other cats a chance to have a better life.
You see, that’s one of the main benefits of adopting a shelter cat! Not only do you save one cat, but by adopting you may inspire someone else to adopt as well.
It’s beautiful, and such stories really make me happy. After hearing this inspirational story, I really hope that many shelter or stray cats will get the second chance they deserve!
