Romero is sooo cute!

I'm Romero, named after movie director George Romero.

One month ago, my life was miserable. My owners left me behind when they moved abroad, I slept on the streets, and had developed a painful otitis. I was cold, lonely, and in a lot of pain.

Luckily, the Belgian shelter Cat Rescue decided to give me a temporary haven and nurse me back to health in the hopes that someone would adopt me one day. However, after one month, no one had even inquired about me. I didn't get it. I'm a handsome man cat. Don't you agree? I may look a little fat around the ears, but I can assure you it's all muscle. If you'd be lucky enough to rub my belly, you'd know what I mean. I have this heart-shaped spot on my thigh which proves that I'm capable of a lot of love.

So, yeah, there I was, abandoned and convinced that I'd never be loved again.

But one evening, Stephanie from Cat Rescue told me that a girl named Vanessa wanted to meet me. Apparently, she'd fallen head over heels with my picture.

Two days later, on December 22nd, Vanessa visited me at the shelter. Half an hour later she decided to take me home. She told me that she would be my little slave and that she'd do anything to make me happy. I'm still a little shy and careful, but I think I'm slowly starting to believe her.

Now I'm sleeping next to her while she works on her blog Traveling Cats (, and I supervise the whole thing. Life is finally as it should be.

Such a Lovely Boy
by: Anonymous

Oh Romero-

You are such a lovely and handsome boy. I can't believe someone didn't snatch you up at once. But I guess it was good that you waited for your "little slave," Vanessa. She seems like a great person.

Best wishes to you in your new life.

A Match Made in Heaven!
by: C M

Dear Romero,

I’m deeply touched by your story. I think you and Vanessa are a match made in heaven! I can’t thank you enough for sharing about what happened to you. I know your experience will help other humans open their hearts and homes to other abandoned kitties who have lots of love and purrs to give. Please keep me up-to-date on how you are doing in your new home. You are such a sweet cat and I’d like to get to know you better.

Your new friend,

Cat McMahon
