When a sweet Siamese mix was taken to the adoption center at Petsmart, she realized that this was the place she would find her forever loving home.

That’s when she spotted a young man who worked at the store.


While at work the young man would always stop by and say hello to the kitties and that’s when this friendly kitty came right to him in a bid to get noticed.

She would paw at the glass every time the man passed by saying “pick me, pick me!”


This determined kitty made it her mission to get the young man to adopt her and by all accounts the man didn’t stand a chance so he brought his girlfriend along to meet the persistent little kitty.

When they opened the cage door she knew exactly what to do. “We knew she was the one because she jumped right into my boyfriend’s arms, and wouldn’t stop purring,” explained the girlfriend.

The couple visited her every day while they were waiting for the adoption papers to go through and they both knew they had the right choice, the bond between them grew.

They decided to name her Pork Chop: “She responds to her name and it is so her.”


“She has made herself very comfortable in our forever home. She loves snuggling and exploring and she’s very vocal and talkative to everyone.”


Pork Chop loves her new life with her new family, especially her dad, whom she chose from the first moment she saw him.
