Abandoned as a kitten, Paulie was one of the first rescues by Coastal Animal Rescue when it opened four years ago. The volunteers loved him; he became the shelter's official greeter and star of its Facebook page.
Yet, despite his sweet, affectionate nature, four years later he still lived at the shelter!
But it only took a moment after I met him to say, "Paulie, we are going home." At the cage-free shelter he was used to being with other cats, so there was no adjustment and he quickly claimed his spot in bed ... curled right next to me.
