“When he was finally in his new home, it’s like a switch flipped.”
Otie is currently curled up and purring, making it hard to believe that he was previously just another lonely cat looking for a loving home. But that’s just how his mother, Alyssa Keeling, came across him when she went to her neighborhood animal shelter.
According to Keeling, “He was obviously sad,” The Dodo. But he also had a strong personality that could not be contained.
Otie was in a bad mood. Then everything was different.
Keeling chose to open her heart to Otie even though his gloomy demeanor at the shelter may have driven off other prospective adopters who assumed he would be an unpleasant pet. She soon became aware of Otie’s actual character.
“When he moved into his new house, it was if a switch had been flicked. Otie woke up, according to Keeling.
She created this endearing movie to highlight Otie’s metamorphosis, which is a touching example of what love can accomplish for a dejected shelter cat:
Otie is flourishing.
And it was all because Keeling was able to see over his melancholy at the shelter.
Otie undoubtedly has a lot to be grateful for, but Keeling considers herself to be the lucky one.
She stated, “I’m just so thankful he’s here with me, that I get to be the one to adore him, and that he’s having his finest, silliest, quirkiest life, looking back on all the images and movies I have of him in his cage.
