On January 24th, I adopted Vixie, an adult cat who had been at the shelter for about 1.5 years (nearly her whole life!). I renamed her Emma, which suits her sweet personality. She found a happy home in Hershey where she has finally been coaxed out of the bedroom closet and discovered a very fuzzy blanket on the bed. Emma is very shy, and only socializes with me. I'm very happy that we found each other and believe that I've found a lifelong friend! Thanks to everyone at the Humane Society in Harrisburg :)
