Superstitions and omens must have some sort of truth behind them considering that our ancestors believed in them so much. Surely these strange and unusual predictions could not have just come out from anywhere. Things do not just come out of the blue, right? Well, we must have all heard about that fact that black cats carry a very twisted omen with them. They say you should never walk a path that a black cat walks across. So what about when black cats do other weird things, like when this black cat kept staring at this boy’s photo…?

Ready To Leave

If you are wondering who was the one responsible for taking in this black cat? Well, it was actually Max’s idea to adopt a cat. He told his mom that a cat would be perfect for their house since he was also a lover of pets especially felines. Alex was almost done with his schooling and he had a plan for his future already. He wanted to join the U.S. Navy. Since he had a single mom, it was not a quick or an easy decision.

The single mom and her young son had been living together, just the two of them for a long while. Since Alex knew that his time to leave home was nearing, he came up with an idea. Since things were going to change soon, he knew that having a pet might make things better.

Accepting The Idea

If you live with someone for so long, you get accustomed to each other. Even as a big family, you get used to being together and coexist like that. Any new addition to the family would feel weird and would also take some time to get used to. When Max told his mother Erin Nimrichter that he wanted to adopt a cat, she was a little apprehensive. The thought of owning a cat was something that had never crossed her mind.

Persuasion Game

So Max had to do a little persuasion in order to get her mother to be on board with his idea. He told her that a cat would be quite helpful during the times he would be away for boot camp and his deployments. He knew that a cat would be able to keep her company. Erin also had a boyfriend, who had not moved in yet since she was not ready for that. So she finally agreed with her son and accompanied him to the shelter to fetch a cat.

The Search

After some convincing was done, Max could finally get his mom to agree to get a cat for their home. So soon, Max and Erin drove to the Cleveland Animal Protective League where they were to select a cat to bring home. The humane society had been established in the year 1913. This is a society that is committed to provide shelter and be a safe haven for abused, ignored and mistreated animals.

In this neighborhood, there were several animals that had not been placed in foster homes yet. So there they met with a cat that by the name Yuuki.
