Adopting a Healthier Lifestyle

One year ago, my husband and I experienced a profound and delightful life change when we adopted our wacky and wonderful cat Maggie, aka Miss Mags, from the animal shelter. Since then, we’ve fallen head-over-heels for this chatty girl who entertains us (and sometimes makes us cringe) with her antics, charms us with her affection, and reminds us daily to look for the joy in life. Pet ownership offers us the daily opportunity to practice selfless service without personal expectation, and we encourage everyone to consider pet adoption. Read more about our life with Maggie here
