Ariel was a beautiful, loving, long-haired tortie girl who (for whatever reason) was abandoned in an East Dayton neighborhood. By the time we found each other, she had already been taken in by a TNR group and fixed, after which she was returned to a parking lot (where she was feeding off of garbage in dumpsters). On our second encounter, I finally coaxed her close enough to me where I was able to scoop her up in my arms and bring her home with me. She was so grateful, always giving so much love, thankful for finding a human who truly appreciated her and gave her the love and home that she truly deserved. I only wish that we could have had more time together. Obviously, I really miss her...but so thankful for the way-too-short time that we had with each other.
