Opal’s adoption is one of those cases where the cat chose the person as much as the person chose the cat. Opal’s new mom lost her cat in 2018, and when she felt she was ready to open her heart to a new feline companion, she visited Java Cats Meowietta to meet some of the kitties in the lounge. On that first visit, Opal approached and then made herself at home in her lap, snuggling in for a nap.
After that visit, Opal’s new mom knew she had found “the one.” When she returned to Java Cats to submit an adoption application, Opal was at her side right away, patiently watching her fill out the paperwork. On adoption day, Opal seemed to know she was going home, but she couldn’t have known about all the new cat furniture and toys her mom had bought in preparation for her arrival!
We love to see matches like this, where a person and a kitty just seem to take to each other right away. Happy tails to all!
