I rescued Ms. Thea (aka Althea) in February 1993. She was in a room full of kitties at her foster mom’s house. I knew she was the one when she came over, crawled into my lap, looked up at me with her big green eyes, and started up her rumble purr. Ms. Thea and I were together, through thick + thin for fifteen years, through many moves across Connecticut and North Carolina, and to her final home with me in Charlotte, NC. She greeted me at the door every time I came home, and slept with me every night. She was my little buddy. I still miss her today. I’m looking forward to receiving my pendant from Rainbow Bridge to keep her close to my heart.  --- Melissa H.
