The shelter was heartbreaking

I went to the shelter on Saturday to look for a cat and the whole experience was heartbreaking. They took me into the cat room and there were cages lining the walls and every one of them were full. I could not believe all the beautiful cats and had so much trouble choosing because it suddenly occured to me that just one of those beautiful creatures were going to get a chance at a new life. Ultimately, my new cat picked me.
The minute I walked in I felt like they were all looking at me saying "pick me". One of the cats (she was actually about a 6 month old not so cute greyish kitten) reached out and touched my sleeve as I got near her cage. The woman in charge told me she would get out any I was interested in so I picked a few beautiful ones and she got them out one by one. As I sat and tried to play with most, they hid or hissed at me. All the while anytime I got near the cage with the grey kitten, she would reach out to me. I asked the woman to take her out and she climbed right in my lap and curled up as soon as she got near enough. I knew then she was "the" one. I have named her Sylvia.
