I was a whisker away from adopting my next cat. I arrived at PetSmart just 10 minutes after an adoption event began, but was told the cat we both wanted - an orange and white DSH named Simone - was in the process of being adopted. I asked about another cat there. One volunteer told me he currently has a "stomach issue" but I can try to adopt him later. That one, a gray and white DSH they call Grant, is described as a lap cat who "purrs like crazy" and more interested in scratches than toys. I will definitely apply for Grant's adoption ASAP because the organization's system requires already knowing who we want to adopt before their adoption counselors meet people PetSmartl.
