Four years ago today, I went to the Animal Rescue League of Boston and adopted a one-year-old cat named Bolt. I gave him a new name: Smirnoff.

A few months later, I began volunteering. A few years after that, I got a job at Best Friends Animal Society – Los Angeles.

It’s true that adoption changes lives.

Happy Adopt-iversary, Smirnoff!


Happy Adopt-iversary, Smirnoff!

The day is almost over, but not quite… So with minutes to spare I say, Happy Adopt-iversary to a very wonderful cat, Smirnoff!¬†He’s been with me now for 3 years, and his adoption began a very intense study in cat behavior, and a crazy journey into the world of animal sheltering! Cheers, Smirf.

The cat that started it all!
