The Apple of My EyePosted by on May 3, 2010
I always love reading all the happy tails from excited adopters on the Animal League web site. Their stories of love and joy always make me smile. I’m so thrilled to be writing a happy tail of my own!
You may have heard that I fostered an adorable, special-needs cat. Her name is Apple and she’s the sweetest. She was dealing with a few medical issues and needed a place to recover in comfort, and I was more than happy to give that to her. This little sweetheart meowed her way into all of our hearts – mine, Howard’s and Bianca’s too! On the second day, I couldn’t imagine our family without her. We bonded instantly and since then, she’s found a permanent spot on my lap.
In January, 2010, I adopted Apple and made her the newest addition to the Stern family. Apple is warm, affectionate and really seems to appreciate all that we do for her. She finds the most comfortable places in our home to take her cat naps with her favorite turtle toy. She’s totally enriched our lives.
The Animal League’s Foster Care Program gives pets in need an amazing opportunity to recover from an illness or condition in the comfort of a loving home.
There are so many pets waiting to be fostered and adopted. I strongly suggest that you visit your local shelter and open your heart and home to a pet. Whether you foster or adopt, you’ll feel amazing knowing that you’re helping to save lives.
If you can’t foster or adopt a pet at this time, don’t worry. You can still help countless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens with a generous donation. You’ll be sending your love to all the Apples out there who are just waiting to find a loving home.
I’m so thankful to North Shore Animal League America and all their passionate supporters. So many pets rely on your kindness, and because of that, our home has never felt more complete. Please help a pet today.
