Some Sorely Needed News to Make You Smile

Nimbus 5

“Dear PoPville,

Thanks so much to the folks who found the gray cat last week at Howard University.

Last week, during the Great Dupont Circle Power Outage of 2015, I was checking your blog for when Pepco was going to restore power. And while perusing that and other stories, I ran across your article about a smoky gray cat that was found lying on a grate near Howard University. When I clicked on the article, the cat reminded me of my cat growing up- Nimbus, except my cat was a boy. When I inquired with the Washington Humane Society they said they had given the 2-½ -year old female the name Nimbus! I had been considering a cat for some time, so surely this was a ‘sign’ that the time was right and this could be the cat- I had to go visit her. She became ready for adoption on Friday and I visited with her on Saturday afternoon. She purred immediately and after about 20 minutes of petting and purring, she was in my car carrier headed home! And she will retain the name Nimbus. She’s been doing really great. She has really good litter box manners, purrs and meows a lot, and quickly made herself very comfortable on my bed. Clearly she is an indoor cat. Anyway, thanks again.”
