When we came to the San Francisco SPCA a month ago we came “just to have a look” and if we were to adopt it was going to be a black cat. When seeing Ginger through the glass door we forgot about everything we said before. She stood there and looked at us, with her big eyes on her petite body and we both knew that she was coming home with us.
Since none of us are used to cats we didn’t really know what to expect the first night. We were told that she might be a little shy but no, not our cat. Three hours after coming to her new home she slept in our bed, on top of us. The whole night. This she’s been doing every night since.
Ginger became Iris and every day with her has been amazing.
Iris is the funniest cat in the entire world, for sure. She is super social and is always where we are: in the bed, on the computer or in our lap when we eat. She is not afraid of strangers and she just loves to sit in the window and look at people and cars. She has become a little celebrity on the street, many of our neighbors have told us how cute she looks sitting there in the window with her pink nose and big ears.
The biggest surprise to us that she is a talker! She loves to talk and if we talk back she continues. Her favorite topic is food.
So again, thank you so much and thanks to SF SPCA for bringing Iris to us. We cannot imagine a life without her.
