(C.A.R.E. Name: Paloma)



Dear C.A.R.E.,

Greetings from Arizona!

It’s hard to believe it has been nearly a year since I adopted Marguerite from the C.A.R.E. - making this tribute much overdue. I told the helpful staff volunteers I was looking for a cat, and they brought me in a room with an adorable little white and black female. Marguerite (a.k.a. Paloma) has brought our family so much joy.

She has quite a strong character to say the least (as do all cats)! After the adoption, she had some problems eating, and adjusting to her new life. There were some big changes! But nothing a little pan fried chicken with butter couldn’t solve. It stirred her appetite. She now eats well, and regularly. Just a few of her favorites are the house plants, and geraniums. She likes to sun herself on the back porch, and absolutely loves belly rubs. But her favorite thing is music, especially in the form of whistling, or cell phone rings. She begins to sing along (long high pitched meows). We all say she was an opera singer in her past life.

Up next for the pair of us is a trip to Austin, TX, where we will live during graduate school. Marguerite is a lovable companion. She is so special and I am so grateful to C.A.R.E. for bringing us together. I love her so much!
