Five years earlier, when Stephanie came to live with me, I resided in a place that did not allow pets. We then needed to move to the city where my parents lived, because they took Stephanie to high school each day, as I had to be at work at 6:30 AM. I was using their address because I lived 25 miles away in another district. Now, the school would no longer allow out of district attendance, so we needed to move.
Round and round we went, looking at the adorable critters and wishing we could take them all. Stephanie came across this one petite cat, who took to her fancy. This was the one! As we filled out the adoption papers, the three women working the event cooed “Oh, Emma!”
