This is the story of Gordon

Gordon in BCHS care

Gordon, the orange medium-haired Tabby kitten, was barely a month old when he, along with his cat mother (Danica) and 4 siblings (Patrick, Jeff, Leslie & Janet), were left in April 2013 in a box on the porch of Bond County Humane Society. Their mother was very healthy and well-socialized and she passed along her calm, happy personality to her kittens. At 7 months old, all grown up, but still with the heart and stomach of a kitten, Gordon was sweet and good-natured, just like his mom, brothers & sisters. His whole family had found adoptive homes while Gordon waited patiently in our shelter, knowing his new mom & dad would surely find him eventually. In November 2013, during an off-site Adoption Event at PetSmart, one such couple saw Gordon, read his story, and after they'd left the store nearly turned around for him that day; but they decided to sleep on their decision. Their home already had a Basset Hound dog and a 17 year old cat. But that orange cat they'd met proved irresistible. The good and compassionate couple looked up where BCHS would be showing adoptable pets the first Saturday of December and they came to find Gordon again. Now they were sure and they applied to adopt him.

February 2014 - an email from the people who adopted Gordon:

Hello to everyone at Bond County Humane Society!

We thought we would give you an update on Gordon. We got him 12/7/13 and as you can see in the attached pictures he's made himself quite comfortable in his new home. He enjoys jumping in the bath tub (when dry), playing with his new dog friend "Daisy" and finding a nice lap to sit on. We have a 17 year old tuxedo cat "Whitesox" that prefers to keep to herself but Gordon doesn't seem to have a problem keeping himself and us entertained. We're so happy to have him in our lives and wish to thank you all for all you do.

Thanks, Dave and Francine
