Dear Editor: In regards to the Lifeline For Pets article of April 10

June 20th, 2014 by Temple City Tribune

Dear Editor,

In regards to the Lifeline For Pets article of April 10 (“It Takes Two”), I was a one-cat (female) mother for 25 years. When my second kitty died three years ago, I was heartbroken and wanted to adopt another female as quickly as possible to dull the pain of loss. I visited a foster home and met a litter of four: three boys and a girl. I sat on the floor and waited to see what would happen. Immediately, a cute little black and white fur ball introduced himself to me. Although the wrong gender, this little guy stole my heart. He was too young to adopt so I visited the foster home several more times waiting for him to be ready to come home with me. He and I agreed that his name was Gabriel (after the San Gabriel Mountains).
During my visits, Gabriel’s brother, a cute little solid black kitty, began to seduce me. He rolled over on his back and looked at me so longingly…..but, I was determined: only one cat for me. The day before I was to take Gabriel home, I talked with friends who had more than one cat and urged me to adopt both boys. I thought about it and struggled between my love for both boys and my prejudice in favor on a single cat family.
In the end, I took both Gabriel and Antonio (named after Mount San Antonio) home. They are now three years old and I have never regretted my decision for a minute.
