Sophie's original owner died and no one in the family wanted her so she was brought into the vet clinic to be put down. Instead, her veterinarian said he wanted to find her a new home because she was such a sweet and affectionate kitty. When I saw Sophie on Next Door.com, I had to see her. She was a beautiful calico and indeed such a loving little cat. I only had her for two and a half years because she had some health issues, but those two and a half years were wonderful - she was a delight in every way and my best buddy and is so missed.
