Woman travels miles to adopt special cat

March 27, 2006

Terrell County-- A woman traveled more than 1,000 miles to South Georgia to give a new home to a cat with a unique story.

Harriet Bromley came from Preston, Connecticut to adopt 6-month-old Parker from the Humane Society of Terrell County. Parker's mother was rescued from Waveland, Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina. She was pregnant and gave birth to seven kittens here in South Georgia.

Bromley saw Parker and his siblings on Petfinder.com and couldn't resist his face or his story.

"The story really got me and I thought I'm going to check him out and he's as handsome as I thought he'd be. Yes you are!," says Bromley.

"The lady that brought them could not take care of them. She lost everything and there was actually their mother and three other cats that came over," says Humane Society VP Abby Slattery.

Parker's brother Luke and sister Seven are still up for adoption. You can call 229-995-7845 or visit www.hstco.com.

 Parker and his new family were on their way back home Monday night.
