“This was meant to be,” says Andy Hoig, referencing her June adoption of Sophie. “I had planned several times to get to the shelter to look at cats, and each time something came up.” But on the day Andy did make it in, Sophie was enjoying her first day on the adopt floor. “I would have missed her had I come earlier.”


Sophie is a beautiful dilute tortie with a leader-of-the-band personality. She loves to be the center of attention and doesn’t get fazed by cameras, lights or strangers in the house. She is remarkably active considering that she had one leg amputated after an injury. “She gets a little crazy and gallops around the house. She’ll zip under the furniture, roll onto her back, and then pull herself out like she’s doing the backstroke. It’s hilarious.”

Sophie is the perfect pet for Andy, who is on the go much of the time. She is content to bird and squirrel watch during the day but when Andy gets home she loves attention. “She is very talkative and she loves to cuddle at night,” Andy explains, “she just makes me so darn happy!”
