A beautiful Siamese was handed in this week at the Effingham County Animal Shelter. Stuck to her collar was a note. When the staff unfolded the A4 paper, it set in motion of events that would lead to Violet’s adoption.
Her flowery name was on the note. Written in purple marker, a little girl called Lacey told the cat’s story. Apparently she either found the Siamese or Violet used to be her cat. But either way, the child was not allowed to keep the pet.
In the letter, Lacey said goodbye to Violet and that she wished that she could keep her. Then the girl addressed the new owner, telling this person that she chose the cat’s name and asked that the animal be well cared for.
Lacey couldn’t be traced and Violent wasn’t microchipped. The shelter put the cat up for adoption and shared the heartbreaking note on Facebook. This caught the attention of Cindy Murray. With tears in her eyes, she decided to visit the cat.
Finding the cat was nervous at the center, Murray took Violet home the very same day. Once in a loving environment, the Siamese relaxed and her sweet nature blossomed. Murray wants Lacey to know that Violet will have the best life ever, treats and snuggles galore, all thanks to her note.
