From Bebop to Beta - Cat rescue story

Beta our cat

Beta our cat

When we lived in NJ we had a cat named Bebop. We loved her dearly. However, we fell on very hard times and lost our apartment, so we had to move. To make a long story short, sadly, we ended up having to give up Bebop, and we moved to TN.

After a couple of years we were able to get another apartment that accepted pets, so we went to the local shelter. Right away we fell in love with a cat that looked a lot like Bebop. We took her into our home and family. Even though she looked so much like Bebop, we wanted to give her her own name, so we named her Beta, (as in our 2nd Bebop).

When we got Beta she was healthy, but very thin. Feather-light. She has since about doubled in weight, and is the most playful cat I've ever seen. I have had other cats, many years ago, but it seems like when they get fixed, or by 1 year old they aren't quite so playful. But Beta is a playful, happy, loving cat. And she is about 2 years old now. She begs to play so much that we are considering getting another cat to keep her company. We just can't keep up with her. But we love cat's anyway, so we don't mind getting another one!
