STERLING WAS ADOPTED TODAY!
I have been volunteering at the shelter since June and he was in there when I came, so I have no idea how long he has been there altogether. But he was in a nice room with two other cats and was doing quite well. But today he was chosen. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry because he has been my favorite all this time. Before the prospective owners came in, I had just spent about a half an hour with those cats and especially Sterling, who sat snuggled by my side all the time except for a couple of moments when he came on to my knee and looked with that golden/coppery gaze right into my eyes. Such a sweetheart and not a mean bone in his body. I hope his new home takes good care of him.
