A warehouse cat found her way into a kind person's home and decided she wasn't going anywhere.

A few months ago, Steve was in his company's warehouse when he noticed a little tabby running up to him, meowing for attention. The young cat was hungry, dirty, and instantly affectionate with him.
She rubbed against his legs and was very vocal. Steve scooped her up and brought her into the office. Immediately, the kitten charmed everyone she met.
When they managed to get her a plate of food, she wolfed it down enthusiastically while making "nom nom" noises with every chomp.

The little one had never met a stranger, turning the place into her playground. After getting her fill of food and playtime, she jumped on a desk, plopped down next to a keyboard, and drifted off to sleep.
No one knew how the kitten got there, nor did anyone come to claim her. There was no sign of a mother cat or siblings.

The office workers purchased supplies for the kitten and contacted their local rescue, Sparkle Cat Rescue, for help. "She was about six weeks old and super sweet. She was extremely playful and curious," Stephanie Grantham, president of the rescue, shared with Love Meow.
The kitten, named Pandora, was immediately cuddly with Stephanie when they got in the car.

She curled up on her lap, wrapped in a towel, basking in the moment. Stephanie took her home as a foster, thinking, "It won't take long for her to find a forever home."
In one week, Pandora gained half a pound and a ton of playful energy, with which she scampered around the house until she wore herself out.

After a flurry of activity, she sought out her foster mom and nestled on her to recharge. Whether Stephanie was on the couch or at her desk, Pandora liked to wriggle onto her lap to play and snuggle before succumbing to slumber.
The feisty kitten learned to play nicely with the help of another kitty and an assortment of toys.
Pandora continued to demand attention from her foster parents and followed Stephanie around like her personal assistant.
When she heard the printer spooling, she hopped onto the desk, inspecting the paper as it emerged.
She shadowed Stephanie around the house, always ready for a cuddle. As soon as her human sat down, she jumped into her lap or her arms. She was feisty, sassy, rambunctious, and very snuggly.
Pandora inserted herself between the computer screen and the mouse, offering her human some feline wisdom.

A few weeks into foster care, Stephanie found herself falling deeper in love with the little rascal.
"She's just a wonderful girl who keeps us entertained. I've thought about it for a month, and it's time to make it official. Pandora is a special, crazy girl, and she and I have a unique bond."
The long-haired tabby, who came in as a foster, never left the house as it had become her forever home.
Pandora has blossomed into a mischief-maker, holding her humans' shoes hostage before they go out. Her tail has bloomed into a magnificent bushy feather duster.
