Bridgid Staub from San Antonio, Texas came home after a monthlong treatment earlier this year. As she began her new chapter in life, she felt something was missing. "I felt incomplete. After a lot of thought, I decided to go down to my city's animal services shelter to see if I connected with any of the cats," Bridgid told us
When she arrived at the City of San Antonio Animal Care Services, she walked up to the staff and inquired about a cat that had been there the longest. "The lady instantly pointed out Cali to me."
Cali was brought to the shelter as a stray. She was found completely deaf and estimated to be a senior based on her few remaining teeth.
"She was a beautiful calico cat with huge green eyes. When she was let out of her cage, she immediately let out a very loud and different sounding 'meow.' This made me smile for the first time in a while," Bridgid told us.
The kitty went straight to the sink and meowed until Bridgid turned on the faucet. "After she got her sip of water, she focused her attention on me. She headbutted my hand until I pet her and then she laid down and curled up, enjoying my scratches."
The sweet kitty realized that she was finally home. "Ever since then, she has slept through the night (right next to me and sometimes sharing my pillow) and has been the biggest cuddle bug," Bridgid told us.
This deaf, older cat has so much to give.
