Last December we were thinking about getting a second cat so that our first cat could have a company. We planned to look at some rescued kittens over the weekend when a special cat found her way to us that Friday. Her name is Hana.
Hana was found by my mother-in-law between our house and the neighbor's house. The poor little girl was so skinny that she was held together by skin and fur. However, her cuteness was infectious. We brought her into our home, trying everything we could to get her better.
During the first few days, we were not able to keep any food in her body. She had a very hard time eating, so we brought her to the vet. After a few vet visits, she finally began to eat. It was wonderful and rewarding to see our efforts pay off. Slowly but surely, she got stronger and healthier with a plethora of love and care.
It was a bit of a surprise to our cat Coco when Hana just moved in. Though Coco was the queen of the castle for about 6 years, after a few months, she slowly welcomed Hana with open paws and finally accepted her as part of the family.
Hana loves to play fetch and will try to play every morning and every night before we go to bed. She also loves to cuddle and snuggle in the bed between our legs. She has brought so much joy and love into our family. We are so glad that she's found us.
