I waited 10 years to be able to have a cat of my own. I decided to visit several shelters in order to get a good grasp of the animals available – Gem found me at the very first one. From the start, she has been nothing but loving, attentive, and completely in tune with me. She greets me at the door when I come home with happy chirps and purrs, watches over me as I do my daily chores, and cuddles me when I’m all done. She’s my little Gem and I can’t imagine life without her.
