Talking Went to the shelter just to look.....but fell in love.

So as you can see from the title, I went to the shelter today just to LOOK at the kitties because I have decided on getting a companion after giving my 8 year old ,Momo, to my mother. I had only adopted him last year but he bonded to my mother and vice versa, so once she moved I decided what better companion to have than each other. Finally, after a couple weeks, I decided to start looking for my own companion. Today, was just suppose to be a preliminary walk through the same shelter. Just as when I first adopted Momo , I knew I wanted an older cat as opposed to the ever so adorable and popular kitties. Looking through all them, they all pulled at my heartstrings, but none like this handsome 2 year old Egyptian Mau Mix (Pharoah, now Jayu). The moment the volunteer opened the cage that was all it took. He was not timid nor scared, he immediately purred for a petting feast. I was so surprised at how at ease he was, it was as if we had a bond in some other lifetime (to get super cheesy). I reminded myself that I was only here to look and we literally just started the tour, but something inside told me there was a reason I had to see him first. Boy was I glad I took the chance, the moment we left the room the other people took interest in him. I had prepared his room (spare bathroom) to get him acclimated, the moment I took him out of his carrier he took a brief moment to sniff and explore, then ultimately made himself comfortable into my lap. They had said he might be very shy and scared at his new surroundings but to my surprise he was begging to explore the rest of the house,which I weakly gave in. I let him out of his room and to another surprise he walked around pretty confidently and now as I write this post, he found his new spot on my bed on top of the comforters. I hope this is a great sign of a long and lovely furever relationship.
