Their cameras were trained on something cuter than some ancient old structure: a playful pack of mewling kittens.

Furry companion found in the ‘Purradise’ room
Woman wanted a company and went to the animal shelter where she met a the sweetest rescue ginger feline in the cat room
When Mallory left for college she realized that she needed a company. This is how she met her ginger cat from the Humane Society:
‘I’ve had a beagle since I was a kid but then I left for college. My dog finally moved in with me during my second year once I was out of the dorms, but after a few months my roommates asked me to give my dog back to the family, our place was just too small.’
Mallory soon realized that she needed something to take care of and hold but wanted to make sure her roommates will approve and didn’t have to deal with them. She love reptiles, so she first got a four foot ball python, then a crested gecko. She looking into getting a third something when her roommates told her that they would be okay with a cat.

And so her search for another companioin began and headed to the animal shelter.
Mallory said, ‘I went to the Humane Society basically right then, walked into a room called “Purradise” and among all of the cats, who were either playful or avoided me, Wash was laying like a fat potato on a pile of other cushie cats. When I interacted with him he was clearly not a cat, but rather a malleable glob of Play-doh who had zero cares what you did to him. I love him.’
‘Since bringing him home he has turned out to be an even better cat. He still doesn’t care at all what you do to him, which is entertaining when I feel the need to make him dance to spice girls, he is always cuddly, and always warm and soft. He is active too, though. He plays fetch with his toy mice better than I’ve ever seen a dog, and brings about four live mice into the house as a gift every week. And every night he sleeps, purring, on the top of my head with his paw touching at least one portion of my face. I don’t mind.’

The artist said, ‘I thought that I could hold an exhibition, but gallery owners said: “This is not art, this is just cats”.
‘I asked: “Why is a shark in the formaldehyde art, but and a cat in a classic painting is not art?”
‘Nobody could give me an answer, and these people began to avoid me saying that I am mad.’

Meet the cute fur ball, Finn. Sheri adopted Finn through a friend who discovered that there were kittens living under a cement step at a friend’s apartment building.
Not knowing what to do with the poor kittens, the woman messaged her friend who volunteered at a Humane Society, and is a total animal lover.
Sheri said, ‘I received a frantic text on a very cold -30 night from a friend’
She immediately came over to pick up the kittens, but by the time she arrived the kittens were gone – except for one and he’s freezing out in the cold. They tried to look around to see if where the other kittens are at, but he was the only one they could find.
After that, Sheri went to the store to pick up some new kitten supplies . She said, ‘He was a little ginger kitten, with the cutest face and the cutest little squeak of a meow. I brought him home, without knowing whether or not I was going to keep him, or give him to one of the amazing rescue organizations in my area.’
She said, ‘It wasn’t easy looking after this little fellow. I had to bottle feed him regularly, look after my dog and cat, and on top of that, I was dog sitting for that very friend who texted me about the kittens in the first place – all this in a one bedroom apartment! But my dog just absolutely loved him. She was so excited to have a new little friend that she could play with and protect. Soon after that, I named the little ginger kitten Finn. I guess deep down I knew that we were going to be keeping him. ‘
‘Finn has made himself quite at home. He has the biggest personality and is absolutely insane, as most kittens are. He does something I like to call “Kitty Parkour” – he literally just bounces of the walls. He’s also a little lucky guy because he has had no health issues whatsoever. ‘
‘He’s growing into a healthy, handsome boy! We’re lucky to have him here – despite what my older cat thinks – and he’s lucky to have survived and gotten out of the cold. I love him so much. He’s my boy!’
