    If ONLY more people out there practised such restraint and carefully considered if adopting a Cat was the right decision? the right time? the right fit? whatever it be for them at that very moment...just as Jessica clearly had, there would be less Cats like Snug finding themselves looking for a new home & family, after 'things didn't work out' and their first home couldn't keep them :/ There are So many pets homeless as a result of 'impulse buys'. I'm sure, if her circumstances had allowed, Jessica would have adopted Snug. But being responsible and committed to making the best decision for this Cat, Jessica obviously did the right thing for Snug, even though I'm certain, it hurt her heart to do so.... Decisions such as this, require a lot of selflessness & strength. Jessica, You deserve a lot of respect and you are to be commended! and I'm sure you & Snug will cherish the brief, yet very special moment & the beautiful connection you both share with each other. I hope you get to visit with this special boy xxxx

    Yeah... no. This cat would come home with me. Don't care if I have two cats already, they chose me and that's it. And that's the reason I can't go to shelters. I would adopt any animal there. 😅

    So, you already got a cat and a baby... What's the problem??? 🤔 I've had 3 babies (adults now) Have had many cats while kids were babies as well as while they were growing up. Same with our dogs over the years. Yeah, some took some time to get used to each other but, worked their differences out. Kids now all have cats of their own and can't imagine life without them... You find a cat like this one that won't let go, you take him home with you, because he has chosen you... It's not always we so called humans that are in charge of choosing. Many times, it's a much better outcome if the animal is the one that chooses you...

    That hug reminded me of my favourite boy Tiger. I went to view cats at an RSPCA Foster home. It was the filthiest den I've ever stepped foot in. Easily over 50 cats running around a two bed grotty, smelly flat. I could bar3 spend 10 minutes there before the smell and miasma of funk was physically pushing me out of the door (and by the way - it wasn't the cats who were smelly 😳)... So there I am trying to head for the door and figure out how to graciously say goodbye without breathing.... When I saw a curtain at a window move. I know the place was full of cats, but I honestly thought it must be a rat! No idea what possessed me to nudge the previously white curtain aside, but I did. And there I saw the twin of the cat in this video. A giant, green eyed, miserable looking tabby was delicately perched on the only clean looking 5 inches of window ledge left! I don't know why, but I automatically reached out and scooped him up, and this, THIS is how he clung to me. Tiger and I loved, laughed, cuddled and fought for each other every day, for many, many years. I'll miss him dearly, and always. 💜🌈

    It was this kind of love that took our household from planning to adopt one or maybe two cats to ending up with four(all in a timespan of a month). We just couldn't say "no" to that kind of instant bond. We almost ended up with five, but my husband wouldn't agree to it because our city doesn't allow homeowners to have more than four cats per household. I still think about that sweet, big, ginger baby we had to leave behind. He was an older cat, but such a love bug. I like to believe that one of the many families that went to that little adoption fair scooped him right up, and now he's snuggling on someone's lap right now.

    Im just gonna say it.. Shame these people for not taking the cat. Seriously. So what if they already have a cat and so what if they have a baby its not like the cat is work like a dog. You can let the cat outside and it would only come for some hugs from time to time. If a cat or whatever animal is treating you like that its seriously f'ed up not to take it in. Even if that cat found a home it will never be as happy as it wouldve been with the person it chose. Maybe thats just the cats personality and its just a hugger but until the new owner can verify that Im just gonna stick with those people are not as nice as they think they are.

    One of my two cats did something similar. I was working at a theater and this stray cat got into the place. Not a kitten but not an adult yet. The rest of the staff was trying to figure out what to do when I came along. All of a sudden the cat came right up to me and basically tried to climb me. Maybe cause Im tall, cant say for sure. Everyone begged me to take it home because no one else could take it. reluctantly I did with the plan to find it a home. Poor thing was being eaten alive by fleas, wife and I gave it a bath and blood just washed out of his fur (he's a white and orange tabby so its real easy to see blood on him). I couldn't find anyone to take him and if you know cats my other cat was not crazy about having a new animal in the house. But in the end he got some goopy eyes and I had to take him to the vet. Well I figured if Im invested enough to spend money on you Im all in. When took the time to do an acclimation process and named him Rascal (and boy is he a little trouble maker) but the cat absolutely adores me. He likes to lay on my wife a lot but is always calling to me for rubs and attention. Wife likes to say that when he saw me he could read sucker on my forehead lol. One of his favorite stunts is to plop down in front of me anytime I get up to walk so I have to "pay the toll" rubbing him to pass by. He's quite a daddy's boy and a real character. He might be a troublemaker at times but I sure do love my little buddy.

    Behaves just like my tabby when she went missing for three weeks from 19th January of 2014. I went out each evening calling her name. Then on a Friday evening in February around 8pm, I called out into the darkness and heard a faint miew. I called again and this very thin starving tabby cat was at my feed. I picked her up and took her inside and she wolfed down a tin of cat food. During the night she clung to me so tightly that neither of us got any sleep that night. She is still with me seven years later bossing me about to feed her, stroke her and walk her outside whenever she wants.

    @scottabc72 Maybe...but the caption was "The couple came to the local shelter to see different animals." I used to volunteer in a cat shelter for years and sadly many people regarded it as a free zoo. They often even complained that they cannot see any cats, because they were all napping.

    Maybe she was volunteering but even if she was just there to visit it can help cats to later adapt to a new home if they have had regularization socialization with humans while waiting for a home
