HSWC Heroes: Zeus, Nick & Chelsea

Zeus, Nick & ChelseaFeatured: 3rd Quarter 2010
Adoption Date:
 November 2007

Their Story: After moving out on my own and living in my apartment for over a year, I decided I wanted some company. I remembered seeing cats at the Humane Society of Williamson County shelter and because I knew they were a no-kill shelter I wanted to adopt from them. I’d never adopted a pet before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. At first, I just sat with all of the cats trying to decide which one was a good fit for me. Then I saw this white cat sitting all by himself, and I asked if I could see him. From the moment I got to play with Zeus, I knew he was the friendliest cat, and I could see him going home with me. When he got to my apartment, he was the epitome of a “scaredy cat”. I wasn’t even able to turn on the TV without him running to the bathroom to his “safe spot”. I was patient with Zeus though and we took our time getting to know each other. It’s been three years since then and in that time Zeus’s confidence has grown tremendously. He is a very happy cat and it’s not unusual to find him curled up cozily in my laundry basket (his favorite place to be). Zeus makes me feel like a proud parent! Adopting him was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
