There are lots of cat owners and cat lovers that get their kitties the traditional way. They go to Pet Smart or some other great pet venue and they adopt one of the kittens there. Who doesn’t enjoy going to glass and looking at the kitties they have that are looking for new homes.
I am grateful to Pet Smart for their service and compassion to animals. We need more people like that. When you think about it, it’s an awesome set-up. Letting existing cat lovers shop there for needed kitty supplies, and then offering a very casual viewing of new kittens.
Who can resist those cute little things?
I wonder how many of their customers go home with new kittens when they were not looking for one in the first place. We would be very surprised at that number.
Kittens Picking Their Owners
Recently, we have seen several instances where kittens choose to instead choose their new owners – rather than the other way around.
Check out these awesome stories:
Kitten Saved from the Side of the Road, Blossoms into Sweetest Cuddle-bug
No one knew if this kitten would make it through her first night after she was found all alone, but she kept on fighting. A woman from Montreal, Canada spotted a tiny kitten lying on the sidewalk, motionless. As she went to check on the kitty, she moved and was breathing faintly.

Kitten Saved from Highway by Officer, Jumped into His Lap and Insisted on Going Home with Him
A 3-month old kitten who was rescued from the highway by a police officer, quickly snuck her way into his heart. Officer Jason Smith at North Kansas City Police Department in Missouri received a call about a kitten stuck on the side of a highway and immediately responded to the location. As he was driving and searching for the whereabouts of the cat, he saw a little ball of fur standing on top of a median wall with a toy glove behind her.

Man Saves Kitten from Junk Pile and Discovers She Stays Small and Won’t Leave Shoulders
Nikki Martinez (a rescuer and foster based in Las Vegas) and her husband went to work on a TNR (trap-neuter-return) project a few months ago, where they rescued a total of 69 cats from inside and outside a hoarding house.
Nikki’s husband found the little tabby in a pile of junk amongst three other deceased cats but he couldn’t reach her. “My husband was ‘surfing’ on his belly atop about nine feet of trash. After hours of trying, he was able to reach in and grab her,” Nikki told Love Meow. Man Saves Kitten from Junk Pile and Discovers She Stays Small and Won’t Leave Shoulders – Love Meow
