When we first met Arnie back in May, he was not a happy boy.
What a difference a few months makes. The days of hunching in a cage with flattened ears and a mistrustful glare are over. Now his eyes are bright, his coat well-groomed, and his ears in a much more contented position.
Even cleaned up, he still looks older than our Greyson, though, leading us to think Arnie may well be his father rather than his brother.
Whatever his position in this particular cat family tree, it really is great to see Arnie looking so much better after being at the sanctuary than he did when he first came to us. Happy adoption stories may be our favorites, but these smaller happinesses feel like great successes as well.
