When I was younger, I adopted a cute little black kitty. I’ve had over twelve wonderful years with her. She’s seen me through a major breakup with a fiancé; additional cats, dogs, rats, and foster kitties; a marriage; two births; and more moves than I care to count. Through it all she’s been my constant companion, prodding and poking me to feed her when I’m sad. Playing with a little bit of string when I’m feeling happy. Purring crazily next to me when I’m relaxing. The only way you will ever know the happiness my black cat has given me these past twelve years is if you adopt one yourself. Give yourself this valentines gift, adopt Marissa (A1387634) from the San Diego County Department of Animal Services.
