One of the hardest—and most rewarding—parts of life at the ASPCA is saying goodbye to our adopted animals. Nothing makes us happier than when they find a forever home, but we often wonder what they’re up to and how they are enjoying their new lives. Fortunately, there are pet parents like Andee G. Andee adopted Wallace the cat from us in 2012, and since then, she’s kept us updated on his life in a very unique way. Here is their Happy Tail:
“When I first met Wallace,” Andee tells us, “he was 7 weeks old. He was just adorable. He curled up right in my arms and cuddled, which won my heart.” During their first year together, Wallace and Andee became inseparable companions. But Wallace also took on a different, more unexpected role: social media star. That’s right! Through Instagram, Andee has taken and shared over 200 photographs of the sweet grey cat, all using the hashtag #AdventuresOfWallace. Thanks to this wonderful use of social media, we’ve now seen Wallace sniffing flowers, napping in the sun, and exploring all that the world has to offer. And through all the photos, one thing remains in focus: Andee has given Wallace an incredible life.
Since we love nothing more than to see our ASPCA alums doing well, we consider this an incredible gift. Thank you to Andee and Wallace, and here’s to many more happy #Adventures!
