Jolie’s beginnings were shrouded in mystery during her early months. She was discovered as a wandering stray in Florida and was shuffled around between various foster homes and rescue groups. It wasn’t until Deanna McCallum came across Jolie that she found a sense of stability and security. McCallum saw that Jolie had been at Cape Ann Animal Aid for quite some time before they met through Zoom, but it was clear that Jolie was in need of a loving home.
Following the Zoom call, McCallum made a quick decision to provide Jolie with a permanent home she had always wanted. Unfortunately, McCallum couldn’t meet Jolie in person before picking her up. When McCallum arrived, Jolie was already settled in her carrier. Therefore, McCallum grabbed the carrier and headed home. When Jolie finally peeked out of her carrier, she saw her new surroundings and mother for the first time. She was extremely nervous, and McCallum allowed her to look around for a while.
Jolie was understandably nervous, but her adoptive mother could tell from the look on her face that she was also in awe of the fact that all of this was meant for her. After months of uncertainty, Jolie was finally home. Although it was challenging not being able to meet Jolie in person before bringing her home, seeing her face light up at the sight of her new life made it all worth it. Jolie needed some time to adjust to her new environment, but once she realized that this was her forever home, she began to relax. Throughout the entire adoption process, Jolie exhibited kindness and gentleness, impressing McCallum, who initially worried about how she would cope with the transition. Despite her difficult past, all Jolie wanted was to be loved.
According to McCallum, Jolie is the most affectionate feline she has ever encountered, although it took some time for her to open up. Despite that, the cat has never shown any signs of aggression, such as hissing, scratching, or biting, and has always been well-behaved. McCallum feels fortunate to have given Jolie a loving home and is grateful to have her by her side.
As soon as Jolie poked her head out of the carrier, she realized that she had reached her destination.
