    Vertebrate - Kristen @CripCamper2020 I went to adopt a kitten today. Instead I ended up adopting a 7 yr old chubby tub of love with sad eyes that were begging for a mommy. It was love at first sight. I can't wait to bring him home and spoil him silly. Meet Eli. 3:35 AM Jan 14, 2021 - Twitter for Android 2.4K Retweets 489 Quote Tweets 63.6K Likes

    Small to medium-sized cats - Lola Mòntez X 000 @drookitquine Replying to @CripCamper2020 We went for a kitten because we thought it would be easier on our other cats to adapt but my husband fell in love with the mum of the litter. And black cats are notorious for being left in shelters f Our Pippa Cat 4:50 PM Jan 14, 2021 - Twitter for Android

    Dog breed - Brian B @bergerinferno Replying to @CripCamper2020 Funny how the whole plan changes the second you step foot in the shelter. We thought we were getting a chihuahua and left with a pit-bull. 3:47 AM - Jan 14, 2021 · Twitter for iPhone

    Vertebrate - Fragile Fern #BLM #BreonnaTaylor #LGBTQIA+ she/her @FragileFern Replying to @CripCamper2020 Congratulations!!! We wanted to adopt a kitten at the start of Covid lockdown, since wfh meant we could give them lots of time. Came home with two special-needs babies, a little boy and the mom who adopted him and let him suckle with her litter. He still thinks he is her baby! 4:54 AM Jan 14, 2021 · Twitter for iPad

    Dog breed - Matthew Anthony @DecusMoon 000 Replying to @CripCamper2020 Been there. 8 yrs ago was wanting to adopt a canine running partner. Ended up adopting a 4yr old tripawd who had been at the shelter since he was 6mths old. Love at first sight too. Not a single day of regret. Congrats on chubby Eli. 6:12 PM Jan 14, 2021 · Twitter for Android

    Vertebrate - The Demon Cat 000 @thefurbeast Replying to @CripCamper2020 and @anthonycwalker Adopted the tuxedo boy this past year at the age of 12. He had just lost the only home he ever had. Fortunately he was only in the shelter for a week. The orange guy in back was six when I took him in. His "loving" ex-mom was going to put him on Craigslist. Sweetest cat ever. 5:19 AM - Jan 14, 2021 · Twitter for Android

    Vertebrate - Stephanie Kalina-Metzger @WriterKalina Replying to @CripCamper2020 This happened to me too. Her name is Frieda and she was in the pound for a year. I watched her get up and sit by every, single person. I admired her persistance and she slept with me the very first night and kept feeling my face all night, the poor thing.

    Organism - L. B-Smith @rosecolordglasz 000 Replying to @CripCamper2020 What a wonderful person you are!! He will be the love of your life in no time. And good on you for not adopting a kitten. Adult cats have a much harder time of finding homes. Especially the older ones. Every rescue of mine has been an adult cat. Here's my family now. 6:06 AM Jan 14, 2021 · Twitter for iPhone

    Brown - D Giggs (Melissa) @PuddinCusp Replying to @CripCamper2020 Awwww! Congrats! Older cats are pawsome! I got my "re-homer" Horatio when he was 5 and he's been a total mama's boy ever since! (He's about 13 now!)

    Organism - Frances Morrighan @TelaDrin Replying to @CripCamper2020 I went to the SPCA not expecting to find a winner, only to get adopted by a one-eyed stinker of a kitty. He insisted we were destined for each other. Then he helped convince a farm feral to move indoors with us & move to another state. Willy's a most persuasive fellow. 6:27 AM - Jan 14, 2021 · Twitter for iPhone

Mariel is the resident cat lady, and she's very serious about that role. Her cat is always curled up on her lap during Zoom meetings, and yes, she will call attention to it and make sure everyone notices. Second only to cats, writing is her passion. It only makes sense that she writes content about animals for a living. She also likes nature, excessively large mugs of coffee, and lemony deserts.
