A Woman Drives an Astounding Thousand Miles to Bring Home a Kitten She Falls in Love With

A Woman Drives an Astounding Thousand Miles to Bring Home a Kitten She Falls in Love With

Have you ever felt so connected to a pet that you’d do almost anything for them? That’s what happened to Amy Cool, a cat lover with a heart as big as the Sunshine State.

It all started when Amy volunteered at the Escambia County Animal Shelter in Florida. She met a litter of adorable kittens, but one little girl, Candy Corn, really stole the show. Candy was always by Amy’s side, purring and even hitching rides on her shoulder. They were best buds!

When it was time for the kittens to go to Pennsylvania to find forever homes, Amy was heartbroken. She missed Candy Corn terribly and couldn’t stop thinking about her.

Meanwhile, up in Pennsylvania, another kind woman named Linny was taking care of Candy and her siblings. Linny noticed that Candy was a real people cat. She’d rather play with her foster mom’s feet than eat her dinner!

Even though Linny loved Candy, she knew Candy belonged with Amy. So, when the time came for Candy to be adopted, Amy didn’t hesitate. She hopped in her car and drove a whopping 1,090 miles from sunny Florida to chilly Pennsylvania, just to bring Candy Corn home!

Can you believe that? That’s a lot of miles for a little cat! But for Amy, it was worth every single one. The moment they reunited, Candy was purring up a storm and wouldn’t leave Amy’s side. It was like they had never been apart.

Back in Amy’s Florida home, Candy knew exactly where her favorite hiding spots and toys were. It was like she had never left!

This heartwarming story reminds us of two things:

  1. The love between a cat and a human is super strong, no matter how far apart they are.
  2. Cat lovers will go the extra mile (or thousand!) to make their furry friends happy.

So, the next time your cat meows for a midnight snack, remember Amy and Candy Corn. It might be a little inconvenient, but the love you get back is totally worth it!
