The Georgia SPCA is half-way-house for hundreds of animal every year. Dogs and cats, puppies and kittens come to the Georgia SPCA by many paths. Here's a wonderful story of a Georgia SPCA tenant who went full circle --back home:
"Hi, my real name is Scout, my rescue family called me Squatter and the Georgia SPCA named me Garfield. Several months ago I showed up at the nicest people's house. - the Garrisons. I jumped in their kitchen window and never left. I was scrawny so the Garrison's took me in and gave me all the food, love and attention that I needed. They even gave me my favorite things in the world - catnip and scratches under the chin.
I would sit in their laps for hours and "knead" and they let me sleep with them at night. The only problem was that Bill and his wife already had 3 cats, one of them - oddly enough - , named Garfield, who didn't accept me as the new kid on the block. The Garrisons hoped Garfield would adjust, but it didn't work out.
Last week, Christy Dickey and her two daughters were at the shelter with their Girl Scout group. Christy noticed a cat that looked like their missing kitty. I'll be you can guess what happened next - their missing cat was me, Scout! They were so happy to find me, and I was returned to the Dickeys.
I want to thank Mr. and Mrs. Garrison for their kindness, love and affection. They are the true rescuers here and I wish I could give them purrs and head butts everyday to show my appreciation for helping me and for taking me to Georgia SPCA where they knew I'd be safe.
Sincerely, Scout aka Squatter aka Garfield"
