As she was looking at the cat, the woman became confused, yet curious. The cat's behavior was very strange, and she had never really seen a cat act that way. She knew there had to be an explanation as to why the cat was behaving that way. But as she began to think of other theories, the truth was soon exposed. And what the truth would reveal about the black rescue cat was something that she never imagined could be possible.
A New Adventure

It was actually her son Max's idea to adopt a shelter cat. He was nearly done with high school, and he had made the decision to join the U.S. Navy. Considering he would have to leave his single mother behind, it wasn't an easy decision to make. They had spent so much time with it being just the two of them, but things were about to be different. That's why Max came up with the idea to adopt a cat.

When Max first brought up the idea of getting a cat, Erin Nimrichter was a bit hesitant. She had never considered it before, but now she was giving it some thought. Max believed that the cat would be able to keep her company when he left for boot camp and deployments. Erin did have a boyfriend, but they weren't ready to live with each other yet. So she decided to go with Max to the animal shelter to find a cat.

Erin and Max decided to go to the Cleveland Animal Protective League. The Humane Society has been around since 1913 and have been committed to providing shelter for abused, neglected, and homeless animals. Erin and Max went to the shelter in the Tremont neighborhood of Cleveland that houses animals that haven't been put into foster homes. That's where they found Yuuki the cat.
A New Family
Yuuki was a female cat that had black shiny fur. She was found wandering the streets and she was brought to the APL to await adoption. The first thing that Erin and Max noticed was that she looked lonely sitting in her crate alone. Max and Erin knew that this was the right cat for them. As soon as they signed the paperwork, they brought Yuuki home. And it didn't take long for her to truly become part of the family.
