My Rescue – Quinn

Rescuing a pet can be one of the most rewarding experiences in our lives. We accept them into our homes and hearts, and in return, they offer us unconditional love and companionship. For me, rescuing a 12-year-old cat was one of the greatest experiences.

Several years ago, I had decided that I wanted to get a cat. I was looking to adopt a kitten and had been searching for local classifieds and through the local shelters for one. It was during this time that an old, scruffy cat had been brought into the clinic I work at by a client. She was as a stray. They estimated that she was about 12 years old. She had horrible teeth, wasn’t spayed, and had worms. She was in rough shape. The clinic agreed to spay her and perform her dental procedures, removing all of her teeth. Unfortunately, she couldn’t be returned to where she was originally found because she no longer has any teeth, and would need to be in a home. It was at this point that I had to make a decision. At the time, I was already looking for a cat, and I had to decide if I wanted to take this scruffy looking creature home and give her a chance or leave her at the clinic, potentially leaving her to be euthanized if she couldn’t find a place to go.

I took her home on a trial basis for the weekend. When we got home, she walked out of the kennel and into my home as if she had lived there her whole life. Quinn finally had a home. That “weekend trial” turned into 6 of the most amazing years of my life.
