Happy ending for Onyx

I wanted to send you a long overdue note to update the story of Onyx, formerly “No Name 300”. A woman had found him and, after putting up flyers and trying to find his owner, no one claimed him. He was then brought in as a stray.

My husband and I decided to visit the shelter in April 2010. There were several kittens on the website, but when we arrived we found out they all were taken. We figured while we were there we would see who else needed a home.

While looking at all of the cats there, one decided to yank on the leg of my jeans. He was in one of the lower cages and just couldn’t wait to be noticed! We knew we had to see more. We took him to the interaction room and he was so loving. He jumped into my husband’s lap and gave him a little head butt. Then he came over by me and gave rubbed my face. We knew this was the one and took him home that day.

Onyx was a little skiddish the first couple weeks, but he has settled in nicely. He is very playful and enjoys being the "king" of the house.

Attached are a few pictures of Onyx. The first one is when we just brought him home and the next few are of him having fun.

Thank you so much for all you do and taking such terrific care of these animals. Onyx has brought us great joy and is a wonderful addition to our family!!!
