Tulip had to overcome many obstacles in her short life, but the 10-month-old kitten greeted each new day with a grin.
She was found on the streets of Ontario, Canada, at the age of two weeks, and was rescued by a local animal rights activist. Tulip had an eye infection but smiled brightly for the camera as her lifeguard took a photo for the website. She had no idea that this photograph would aid her in finding a permanent family…
Jen and Chris had been looking for a friend for their cat, Pinecon, for months when baby Tulip’s grin appeared on their computer screens. Jen says, “Her grin in the tiny ad immediately attracted us in.”
The couple applied for adoption right away and were accepted. They couldn’t believe Tulip was still smiling even at the shelter when they went to see her. They had an instant connection with her. “We fell in love with her beauty and demeanor the instant we met her in person,” Jen said.
