We adopted Sassy from the Shelter when she was 3 months old. She was always shy and set in her ways. Years later we found a great house with lots of land for running room that was fenced in. When we arrived at the house, my daughter opened the car door and Sassy BOLTED. We searched every way we could for weeks and no Sassy.

We go to the Post Office everyday for our mail since there is no house delivery where we live. On this day, I saw a tabby cat by the outside mailbox. I jumped out of the car as my daughter screamed "What are you doing!". I grabbed the cat and with tears flooding my eyes. I looked for an orange "lightening bolt" on her forehead and THERE IT WAS!

I had a huge smile on my face as I held Sassy tight and looked toward my daughter. We had been looking nine months for her. My daughter said "I guess Sassy Cat had to mail a letter today!" We both laughed as we drove home. Sassy seemed very happy to be at her new house.

Sassy is now the Alpha Kitty to 5 other kitties and 2 dogs. Over the years we have been able to create a mini sanctuary to animals that have had very sad beginnings. With Sassy around to keep them in line, they will have long and happy lives.

I'm sure Sassy Cat won't let any of her brothers or sisters go MAIL ANY LETTERS!! I think she finished that chapter in everyone's life.
