4000 MilesTo Adopt A Cat!

 

Updated : May 18, 2009


From the humble farm yard pig pen VeryHappyPig has noticed a change in perception towards animals and in particular pets over the last few years.

A Dog isn’t happy with a collar anymore it wants a diamond encrusted necklace to go with its Gucci Bag. Cats are in similar position and tend to wear a lot more than the fur coat these days. VeryHappyPig even heard a story about a rabbit who was left a mansion by its rich owner!

It seems people are gone pet mad, a point emphasised by our next story.


A London couple travelled nearly 4,000 miles to the US state of Michigan adopt a cat.

Rose and Chris Rasmussen flew to Harrison to adopt Sparky the cat from the Clare County animal shelter, reports the Daily Telegraph.

The Rasmussens discovered Sparky on Petfinder.com, a pet adoption website.

They could have had him shipped to the London suburb where they live, but instead decided to make the journey to adopt their new pet.

"He took me here on the other side of the Atlantic," Rose Rasmussen said. "I thought they would say, 'You guys are completely mad'." VeryHappyPig reckons they would be correct to assume that!

Paperwork, a rabies vaccination, a six-month quarantine and other formalities followed before Sparky was cleared to depart for Britain.

Dave Gendregske, the animal control director for the county, said: "A lot of people would ask, 'Why come from England?' When people meet Sparky, find he has a dynamic personality, they fall in love with him."

Staff at the shelter said the black-and-white kitten had become something of a mascot since he was taken in last August.

"Sparky likes to explore," Betty Beadle, a volunteer at the shelter, told the Morning Sun of Mount Pleasant newspaper. "He destroyed Christmas trees twice."

When will Pigs become pets!
