A woman went to the shelter in her neighborhood in the hope of adopting a cat.

“I asked which cat had stayed the longest, and I came home with an elderly, deaf and toothless lover,” she says.

Bridgid Staub, from San Antonio, Texas, returned home after a month of treatment earlier this year. As he began a new chapter in his life, he felt something was missing. “I felt incomplete. After careful consideration, I decided to go to the local veterinary shelter to see if I had a connection with one of the cats,” Bridgid told Love Meow.

When she arrived at the City of San Antonio Animal Services, she contacted the staff and asked for information on a cat that had been there the longest. “The lady immediately pointed me to Cali.”

Cali was brought to the shelter as a stray cat. It was discovered that she was completely deaf and was considered elderly due to the few teeth she had left.

“She was a beautiful calico cat with huge green eyes. When she was let out of her cage, she immediately emitted a very loud and different “meow”. It made me smile for the first time in a long time,” Bridgid told Love Meow.

The kitten went straight to the sink and meowed until Bridgid turned on the faucet. “After taking his sip of water, he focused his attention on me. She head-butted me on the hand until I stroked her, then she lay down and huddled against me, enjoying my caresses.

At that moment, Bridgid knew she had found the right cat. Cali, who had lived a life of wandering, clung to her human and kicked him.

A few days later, Cali left the shelter for good. “She didn’t sleep at all the first night. She was hypervigilant and anxious about her new environment,” Bridgid said. “The next morning it was like a light went on. She curled up on my lap while I was on the couch and fell asleep.”

The sweet cat realized that she had finally come home. “Since then, she’s been sleeping all night (right next to me and sometimes sharing my pillow) and is the cuddliest,” Bridgid told Love Meow.

This old deaf cat has a lot to give.

“She brings a lot of joy into my life and I am so grateful that I decided to adopt,” Bridgid told Love Meow.

“It’s a cliché, but it’s so true for me….. I may have saved her life by adopting, but she saved mine too!
