Proud “Nominate a Goodie” Partner
Anne Bolen was ready to bring a new addition into her family.
“It was National Adoption Weekend for homeless animals, and we were ready for a cat,” Bolen said.
After looking around and having a tough time deciding which one, Bolen got some advice.
“One of the foster ‘parents’ of homeless cats told us to go to the Willamette Humane Society and take a look because they were overcrowded and since they euthanize, cats lives were in jeopardy.”
Bolen took the news to heart, and went to find true love.
“It had been so hard to choose,” Bolen said. “So I asked which cat had been there the longest.”
That is when Abby came into the story.
“She was only 2 years old, and she was very beautiful,” Bolen said. “It was hard to figure out why nobody had adopted her.”
At first Abby didn’t want out of her cage, but once she was able to spend some quiet time together with Bolen and her two children, Lila and Darius, she was purr-fect.
“We ended up really clicking with her,” Bolen said.
Abby had been a stray, but warmed right up to the being part of the Bolen family.
“She has added quite a bit of love to our house,” Bolen said. “The kids have really stepped up to the responsibility of having an animal. They feed and water her first thing in the morning. It just feels like our family has expanded.”
