23/100

This is Junebug. Adopted from TAS. She was a stray from Northern Quebec. I loved her from the moment I saw her on a blog. But by the time I called she was already adopted. Wasn’t meant to be and maybe just as well. I had gone back to school at night and weekends and was working full time. Then about three weeks later I saw her again. The person who was going to take her changed her kind and TAS forgot to mark her as available. This time I moved heaven and earth and she was mine. Then a little more than a month after rescuing her, she rescued me. My partner died suddenly. But being responsible for her got me up and moving through my grief. It’s been six years and she’s helped me make new friends.
