It’s A Catty Christmas

, , , , , | Hopeless | December 24, 2018

I’ve been volunteering with an animal shelter for a few years now. About a week before Christmas, I go with the owner to open the main building, and there’s a huge bag in front of the door. To our surprise, there’s a ton of stuff for cats: sealed bags of dry food, cans of wet food, old — but clean — blankets, cat collars, toys, flea treatments, and even a carrier.

We bring everything inside and are shocked that someone would just drop this all off and not want to get recognition or anything, but then we see a note attached to one of the food bags. It reads:

“I adopted my cat from this shelter many years ago. He recently passed away, and while I knew it was coming, I’d hoped I could have one more Christmas with my best friend. Since I can’t, I’m donating some of his old things, along with a bunch of new things, so that the cats still waiting for their forever homes can have a happy holiday. Thank you.”

We showed the note to every volunteer that came in and, needless to say, there wasn’t a dry eye in the shelter for days. We still have no idea who left all of those wonderful gifts, but if you’re out there, rest assured that the cats in the shelter had a very happy holiday, thanks to you!
