Man Wanted To Adopt A Shelter Dog But A Kitten Found Him Instead

Published on June 5, 2021

A man claims that he has always been a dog person, and he just wants to adopt dogs. For this reason, he went to his local animal shelter to bring a dog home. However, all the doggies at the shelter were already adopted and moved into their new home. Although he could not get any of dogs, he was so happy because they finally found a loving family.

“I was in Virginia for some training. At this specific time, a pretty large snow was blowing through. When I was on my way home I heard on the radio that a shelter called Richmond Animal League was looking for temporary/permanent homes for all of their animals, as the staff expected to get snowed in,” Spamwisejamkey an Imgur user said.

A woman at the shelter took him to a little kitty room to help him find a friend. However, he wasn’t really moved by any of cats. So, she showed him back out to the lobby where they had some younger creatures separated in cages. He was going to come back home, when he saw a little kitty cat named Marbles was in a cage in the back of the room. He seemed to like this kitten, so the woman told him he could hold her if he wanted to.

“I opened the cage, picked her up and that was it. She started meowing the most pathetic little chirps as she pushed her face to the brim of my cap (this is when they got the picture), only to be backed by a rumble of purring. I turned into a huge sap,” he said.

“I didn’t like or ever want cats before this. Simply put; I shook my head with a nod of acceptance, put her back in the cage for a brief moment while I did the paperwork, and got ready to take her home. They didn’t have pups, but they did have my best bud. I was not a cat guy, but I guess you could say I’m a cat guy now.”

And instead of getting a puppy he was chosen by a sweet cat who really wanted to be his best friend. Then, he gave her a new name, Barb. Thanks to the help and love of the man, Barb is now one beautiful, sweet and feisty kitty.

About six months after he adopted Barb, he adopted a dog named Rupert. Soon, they became close friends and spent most of their time playing and chasing each other.

It has been two years since he adopted Barb and Rupert and now their bond is stronger than ever. We are happy to hear that they are now enjoying their wonderful life.
