Bethy Campbell and her husband Casey Pettitt drove from Spokane, WA to Agape Fosters, in Iowa, to rescue Muffin.
Muffin is a gorgeous red tabby, whose previous owner could not keep him anymore.
Ms. Dianna Helmers, founder of Agape Fosters, was so moved by the couple’s four days drive to only pickup their new cat and return, that she prepared a spare room for the couple in her home, and invited them to spend the night. After all, the new family had to drive back home for another four days.
Muffin, the tabby, even cuddled up and watched TV with his new parents in a hotel room, on the way to kitty’s furever home, in Spokane, WA.
It’s great when cat stories have happy endings.
How much would you drive to pickup your dream cat?
The estimated round trip made by this Spokane couple was 3,500 miles long.
My wife and I would probably go anywhere for the perfect cat. In fact, she loves red tabbies, and it’s possible that she will want one after reading this.
I know how exciting it must have been for them to travel to grow their family. Cats are wonderful companion animals, and it’s normal for people to cave in to their cuteness.

They know how to get to us, and exploit their cuteness to perfection. How could you resist so much sweetness and love? We couldn’t.
