Annie Rahe was picking up groceries at her local Walmart last month when she went to look at the Christmas decorations. Her early Christmas shopping took an unexpected turn when she pulled her trolley onto the festive section.
Between the wooden pallets, a little black and white kitten slept, his owners nowhere to be seen.
On the exterior, the cat appeared to be furious, yet all he wanted was to be loved. So she reached out to Riggi Rescue to see if they might assist the frail, flea-infested stray.
“We had taken some shots of him when he first walked in, and he just looked so grumpy.” “Oh my god, is he nice?” I asked, and she said, “Oh yeah, he’s extremely pleasant.” The Dodo spoke with Melanie Anielski, the rеscuе’s primary foster mom. “That’s simply his face,” says the narrator.
The rеscuе dubbed the cat Giggles and set about looking for his owner. Despite his furrowed brow, Giggles seemed grateful to be in a home again and made sure to show his appreciation to his foster parents.
“His demeanor is very chill,” Anielski said. “He’s super laid-back, he loves to plop down next to you wherever you’re sitting, wants you to scratch his belly. So he’s really, really loving.”
When no one claimed Giggles, the rеscuе sharеd a photo of him on their Facebook page to see if anyone knew him. They were taken aback when photos of the grumpy cat went viral in a couple of days, prompting adơрtion requests from all around the world.
“We were blown away since we’re just a little bunch of cat lovers, and now one of our cats is famous on Instagram,” said the group “According to Anielski. “It was a thrilling experience.”
The organization realized it was time to locate the beloved cat a permanent home after a month with his foster family. Fortunately, Giggles made choosing his new parents a breeze.
“It was an immediate connection when they first met, as if they’d known one other forever,” Anielski added. “It was the cutest thing I’d ever seen.” He just strolled up to his new mother, rubbed his hands on her legs, and flipped over, and he was instantly smitten.”
The grumpy-looking cat is now the spokeskitty for Riggi Rescue, helping to get more people excited about rescuing and adơрting cats.
When he’s not working, he cuddles with his loving family and two cat brothers, proving that looks can be deceiving.
“He really just wants human companionship and I think he’s really happy that he has that now,” Anielski said.
