Bon Bon: My Story...

Hello!  My name is Bon Bon, and my Lancaster Shelter number A4669291. I'm a female domestic longhair, approximately 3 years old. I was in the shelter since January 17th. Somebody said they would adopt me, but when they found out I was possibly getting a URI, they cancelled my adoption. Thanks to Feral Paws Rescue Group's first responders, they pulled me from the shelter and I was removed from the "put to sleep" list. I want to thank all the people who pledged donations to raise money for my rescue and hopes for a new life. The middle picture is me when I was rescued. I could hear them talking and saying how pretty I am, and that I'm a real "talker" and "nuzzler" and how nice it will be when somebody asks to keep me and give me a forever home. The last picture is me on the way to my new foster family.

Then on January 25th, little did I know that my future Mommy would be considering adding me to her family. She posted a message on Facebook that she had filled out my adoption papers (Feb 2nd) and that's when my world really began to change for the better. Next thing I knew I was at Southern Kern Veterinary to have a veterinary checkup and health certification for flying on an airplane.

I was so surprised when I learned that a whole group of wonderful people were working hard to get me to my new home. Yes! I will have a new home by the end of the day. I'm so excited to know that somebody truly wants to love me. I know I will love them back. --  On Wednesday, February 12th, one of Feral Paws Rescue Group drove me to LAX International Airport. Wow! Those are some really big and loud birds that fly around this place! I didn't know that I was soon to board one of those "big birds."  I want to thank Kelly Pusskitty (Imagine Home) who arranged my 1st class flight. It was Davica (Animal Rescuers) who flew with me. (Thank you Davica for flying from Miami to L.A., then to Chicago, and back to Miami = wild 24-hour trip to bring me home) -- Third photo is me on-board the flight, even have my own TV. Last photo is us over Chicago, soon to be landing at O'Hare  International Airport around 9:30pm. It's been a long day, but one I will never forget.

 That was an interesting adventure. And as I'm looking around, I that my new Mommy? Aw, isn't that sweet? She made me a sign, which I must say is much better than that sterile looking shelter sign I used to have. But that's in the past, and I'm looking at my new Mom and her name is Nancy Chodelka DeLavergne -- so I'm now Bon Bon Chodelka DeLavergne -- a noble name for a purrrrrrty kitty. Just look at me loving life in my new home! Thank you, Momma Nancy, for saving my life. I will love you forever.
