Julia (formerly Sprinkles)

"I adopted Julia, formerly Sprinkles, a few months ago. I was lured to the new Petco location by my Mom who said I HAD to see this dog she wanted to adopt.

"When I got there she immediately said, 'Come inside.' There were three kittens in the top cage, one of which wouldn't go to anyone. She just sat there in the back looking really scared. Even the people caring for her couldn't figure out why she wouldn't come to them. So my mom said, you try and pick her up. I reached in, scooped her up and she instantly started purring, went to sleep curled up by my neck.

"Needless to say - she is THE BEST KITTY. Gets along very well with my two other cats and is just a godsend to our family. We love her so much!"
