As soon as my husband and I met Cisco at Meow Parlor, we knew that she had to become a part of our family. We weren’t even considering adoption (Meow Parlor just sounded like a lot of fun!), but Cisco immediately changed all of that. She was sweet and cuddly, sitting on my husband’s lap, licking my hand, smiling and showing off her fangs—not to mention the fact that she was missing one of her back legs from being hit by a car, which only made her more special in our eyes. Unfortunately, when we emailed Kitty Kind about adopting her, she was already spoken for, but we decided to wait and see what happened just in case. And thank goodness we did! Through luck or fate, that adoption fell through and Cisco became ours.
Cisco adapted immediately to our home. She is endlessly curious, always playful, and she never backs down from a challenge, whether it’s reaching the treats on our high dresser, batting a shiny stone off of one of our shelves, or fishing the chapstick out of the very back of the nightstand (apparently it’s a fun thing to roll around all night). She wakes us up if we’ve been sleeping too long, talks all the time, and loves being held. In a nutshell, she just wants to be wherever we are. As we move from room to room around the apartment, there she is, purring at our feet. And best of all: every time we come home, she is always waiting right at the door! Cisco is one of the most adoring, unique cats I’ve had the pleasure of knowing, and we are so glad that the Meow Parlor (and KittyKind!!) brought us together. The macaroons are pretty stellar, too!
