A man went into a shop to buy food and came out with a 25lb rescue cat! It was definitely love at first sight when they opened the cage door and Pumpkin the cat began to squeak at him.

“When I walked into the PetSmart to get food, I saw this dude, Pumpkin, in the SPCA adoption center. His paperwork said he was 25 lbs and came from England. His owners brought him here and had a kid, so they dumped him after 6 years because he was ‘too needy’. Whatever.” says Reddit user GREGORIOtheLION. “I called my wife in from the car because when the employee opened the cage for me, he literally squeaked at me. It was love at first sight for us.”

“With the adoption came instructions that we need to get his weight down. Which we’ve done before with our other cat. The vet said he’s actually 21.8 lbs, and we need to get him to 13. He’s the most affectionate cat we’ve ever had. We normally don’t keep the name they come with, but what else do you call a 25 lb orange cat?”

“He’s digging the office, where we’re keeping him while he and our other cat get to know each other. He loves the tree. Upon letting our other cat, Bartleby, into the office (trading them out for a few minutes), he smells everything in sight. While Pumpkin just lays on the couch to say “I don’t need to smell anything. I’m home.”

“Look at this guy. Sweetest cat ever. Since he’s from the UK, and we live on a street called Hebron, we’ve renamed him. Meet Pumpkin Cumberbatch Pierce, the Duke of Hebron.”

What a lovely story with a very happy ending!
