When she arrived, she saw the cat curled up in front of a homeless shelter. The tabby woke up to her voice and sauntered up to her for pets. He was extremely friendly and just wanted attention.
Gissell knew right away he didn’t belong on the street, and began a rescue mission to get him into a foster home.
When she returned to the same spot with a humane trap and more food, at first, she didn’t see the cat.
She called the tabby, and within seconds, he came running as if he was excited to see an old friend. “I’m here to get you today. Today is your day. You have waited long enough,” Gissell said to the tabby cat.
