There’s nothing quite like that precious moment of holding your new furry friend right after you become a parent. The adventure called life is right around the corner and neither of you can hold in your excitement!
So, dear Pandas, we invite you to post the pictures of your pets right after you adopted them! Because chances are, you will remember everything about the little critter sitting humbly on the ride back home like it happened yesterday.

#38 This Was The Same Night We Got Her
She was a stray along with her sister that someone found in the neighborhood. Someone posted on Facebook if anyone could pick them up since it was on there property but not their cats. They were covered in fleas and bleeding all over from bites. On top of that it was summer time in Georgia so it was really humid and wet. We picked up both of the sisters and brought them home and this one has never left my side since. They seemed even more happy whenever we got the fleas removed for good. This was 2 years ago and now every night she’ll curl up under my armpit and sleep with me all night.

Xenie is a snuggle bug and adapted quick and love it when you play ball with her. Kitty came to the shelter wild and very thin. For 2 weeks he only ate and slept (mostly on my shoulder). Since the beginning of this week they’ve been waking us up with their playing. Kitty now comes for rubs and loves sleeping with us. Rescues are the best
