A man went to the store to get cat food, but ended up adopting a 25 lb rescue cat. Pumpkin the cat literally squeaked at him when they opened the cage door for them to meet.
"Look at this guy. Sweetest cat ever. Since he's from the UK, and we live on a street called Hebron, we've renamed him. Meet Pumpkin Cumberbatch Pierce, the Duke of Hebron," reddit user GREGORIOtheLION wrote.
"When I walked into the PetSmart to get food, I saw this dude, Pumpkin, in the SPCA adoption center. His paperwork said he was 25 lbs and came from England.
"His owners brought him here and had a kid, so they dumped him after 6 years because he was 'too needy'. Whatever."
He called his wife in from the car to meet the ginger boy.
"When the employee opened the cage for me, he literally squeaked at me. It was love at first sight for us."
"With the adoption came instructions that we need to get his weight down. Which we've done before with our other cat. The vet said he's actually 21.8 lbs, and we need to get him to 13.
"He's the most affectionate cat we've ever had. We normally don't keep the name they come with, but what else do you call a 25 lb orange cat?"
"He's digging the office, where we're keeping him while he and our other cat get to know each other. Loves the tree."
This is his couch now!
"Upon letting our other cat, Bartleby, into the office (trading them out for a few minutes), he smells everything in sight.
"While Pumpkin just lays on the couch to say 'I don't need to smell anything. I'm home'."
