There’s Something about Molly
Beatriz and Kevin Herrmann of Miami, FL, have adopted several loving cats over the years, but there’s something extra special about their kitty Molly. Found as a stray, this rescue cat’s affectionate nature belied her life on the streets. Beatriz describes how she and her husband came to love their cuddle bug.
Molly was discovered by my husband, who first noticed her by the back door of his office building. She would just stand there, watching people and showing no fear.
One day, my husband spotted her eating whatever people gave her: yogurt, noodles, certainly nothing that resembled cat food. It seemed she was once a pet and was abandoned, since she approached everyone and was extremely comfortable with human contact.
Molly spent a couple of days sleeping by the office parking lot before we brought her home. My husband thought that she wouldn't survive there for long, and we decided to adopt her in April 2009. She suffered an ear infection, but otherwise, she was healthy.
Now Molly is our best companion. She sleeps with us because she loves to cuddle at night—almost spooning! She is so affectionate, and has helped us with our grief over the loss of previous cats. This is a perfect testimony of how many abandoned pets are in need of loving homes—they have tons to give and are just waiting for someone to adopt them.
