Sophie the cat was rescued from a hoarding scenario when she was approximately three years old, when she and a slew of other animals were packed in cages on top of one other. The Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARL) took her in and quickly adopted her into a new household.
Sophie is a nice and loving cat that only wants to spend as much time as she can with her parents. When her parents went to bed the first few nights after she was adopted, she would climb to the top of their dresser and sleep there the whole night. It’s as if she wanted to be high enough to keep an eye on her parents and know when it was time to get up again.
Sophie’s mother, Christiana Viscusi, told The Dodo, “I tried to see if she would sleep on our bed, but she insisted on always sleeping on the dresser.” “After a few nights, I emptied out the dresser and replaced it with her bed. Since then, she’s been walking up to her bed when we go to bed.
Sophie’s bed is a small version of a human bed, complete with her own sets of sheets and blankets that rotate. Her mother gets her all snuggled up in bed every night, and she spends the entire night there.
Viscusi stated, “She sleeps there the entire night, all snuggled in.” “She only comes out of bed for a snack about 3 a.m., then returns to her bed till my alarm goes off in the morning.”
Sophie’s mother set up an Instagram account for her so that the rest of the world could see her beautiful sleeping habits as well. Many people wonder if Sophie’s mother forces her to pose in bed for photos…
Sophie, on the other hand, sleeps in her bed every night because she simply wants to be near her parents. That’s precisely what she wants to be doing when they’re all snuggled into bed and sleeping through the night.
Sophie, on the other hand, enjoys being outside as much as she enjoys being inside.
“If I merely say, ‘Sophie, do you want to go outside?’ she will run and sit down to get her harness on and go outside,” Viscusi added. “She could sit outside for hours, keeping an eye on the yard. She’s waiting for me at the door when I get home from work, circling me to go outdoors. When I get home, we have a pattern where we go outside for at least an hour because I know she’s been waiting all day.”
Viscusi spotted one of the neighbor’s cats following them when she first started taking Sophie outside a year after she was adopted. Scottie would follow them around everywhere they went, and as the weeks passed, he got closer and closer until he was right by Sophie’s side every time she went outside.
Sophie’s mother won’t realize much of it at first, till she learned that Scottie had been rescued from a storage situation and rescued about the same time as Sophie.
“It’s possible they were in the same area at the same time and were put in different shelters,” Viscusi added. “It just makes us think. Especially because Scottie’s owners claim he doesn’t get along with other cats and are surprised at how much he like Sophie.”
Scottie and Sophie may or may not have come from the same family, but they love each other and spend lots of time together as they can.
Viscusi explained, “Every time we are outdoors when he is, he rushes right over to hang out.” “It’s many times a week throughout the summer. He goes over and cries at us because he sees us on our terrace over the yard, then sits at our backdoor waiting for us to bring her out. It’s very adorable.”
Sophie’s upbringing may have been difficult, but it has had no impact on her lovely nature or love of life. She appears to be overjoyed that she now has a place to sleep, a companion to play with, and a family who will adore her for the rest of her life.
