When photographer Steve Hamel was fixing his jeep in his garage at the end of December last year, he had no idea that it would be the start of an exciting trip. Steve saw a sweet, sociable kitten in his garage, and because he didn’t have any cats, he believed she was lost and sought refuge.
Steve saw the red-haired cat had joined him in the garage while examining the automobile. The cat climbed into the jeep with ease, as if she knew exactly what she was doing, and she seemed to want to share her full cat experience.
Steve explained to Love Meow:
I’m only attempting to repair my vehicle. I’m not even the owner of a cat.
In his garage, a man discovers a nice cat.
Steve fell in love with the orange cat right away, despite the fact that he had no idea where it came from. Of course, the crafty kitty made sure to attract his attention by climbing onto his shoulders and snuggling gently. It sat on his shoulders, ready to go on a walk and view the sights as if Steve were his royal chariot.
He jumped up to a tow truck after his assessment of the area and carefully examined the Jeep. It all caught Steve off guard after making sure everything was in order and stopped at a toolbox to claim it as his new bed.
They checked the kitty but discovered no necklace or microchip that may lead them to her family, so they proceeded to ask their neighbors if they knew who she was.
Steve expressed himself as follows:
We will keep the cat if we do not succeed. It is a wonderful love.
The cat was given the name Sally by the man’s small daughter, and the entire family fell in love with her. They hurriedly purchased some materials as well as a little nameplate.
“Sally enjoys hanging out on my shoulders, and despite the fact that she has a complete set of claws that make doing so around the home uncomfortable, my work jacket makes it rather comfortable.”
After Steve shared the tale on Facebook, they received a call from a family who identified the cat as their lost pet just days after they met her.
A little sad Steve expressed himself as follows:
We tracked down the owners. These beautiful people finally got to meet their much-loved pet. They lived around the block and had a number of touching photographs of the cat interacting with their daughter. Even while it was painful at the same time, it felt good to bring them together. Despite my sad heart, I am confident that we made the correct decision.
The family’s emotions were affected by meeting and spending time with the cat, and there was a hole in their house, so Steve pondered adding a new feline addition to his family.
Steve continued, ”
“We opted to adopt because we had a hole in our hearts in the shape of a cat.”
They had finally discovered the perfect match, and everyone was ecstatic. Steve explains:
“We were looking for a tabby cat, but it snatched our hearts. It is really sweet, and black cats are less likely than other cats to be adopted. This is Sally 2.0, as we already have a Sally label.
The affectionate kitten’s surprise visit made a lasting impression on Steve, demonstrating that he still missed a part of his family that they had never expected to discover. Certainly, the feline in his garage left a mark on his heart that will never be forgotten.
