A two-year-old shelter cat named Edward never had a loving family to call his own. But little did he know that someone was out there who needed him more than he needed them.
Iona had made a trip to the Montgomery County Animal Shelter in Conroe, Texas with her son. Her cat of 10 years had just passed away. After looking for a new companion, she spotted Edward, and instantly knew he was the one for her. “The way he cuddled upon my shoulder reminded me of the cat I’d just lost,” she recalls.
Barbara Bates, the adoption coordinator for the animal shelter, was there with her camera when this rare incident of ‘love-at-first-sight’ happened, right there in the lobby of the red-brick building.
“It just filled my heart,” Bates says about the scene. “The kitty just snuggled right up to her.”
“I said, ‘Iona, do you mind if I take your picture?’ And she said, ‘Honey, I sure hope I don’t break your camera.’”
Bates’ camera turned out fine, but I wouldn’t be surprised if a few hearts broke upon seeing this tender moment captured that day:

“[This] photo tells me Edward immediately sensed that Iona had lots of love and security to offer him,” Bates says.
“To me, an animal gives you life, that a person can’t, or material things can’t.
“You come home from a stressful day, and they want to kiss on you. It just makes everything bad go away. So it just touched my heart.”
Looks like Iona will have a new favorite picture of hers to treasure.
This is the letter a mother shared on social media after taking her daughter skateboarding at a local skate park for the first time. She wrote it to thank an anonymous teenage boy for helping break down gender barriers for her six-year-old daughter, even though he got laughed at..
Dear teenage boy at the skate park:
You’re probably about 15 years old, so I don’t expect you to be very mature or for you to want a little girl on your skate ramp for that matter.
What you don’t know is that my daughter has been wanting to skateboard for months. I actually had to convince her that skateboarding wasn’t for just for boys.
So when we walked up to the skate park and saw that it was full of teenaged boys who were smoking and swearing, she immediately wanted to turn around and go home.
I secretly wanted to go too because I didn’t want to have to put on my mom voice and exchange words with you.
I also didn’t want my daughter to feel like she had to be scared of anyone, or that she wasn’t entitled to that skate park just as much as you were.
So when she said, “Mom it’s full of older boys,” I calmly said, “So what, they don’t own the skate park.”
She proceeded to go down the ramp in spite of you and your friends flying past her and grinding rails beside her.
She only had two or three runs in before you approached her and said “Hey, excuse me …”
I immediately prepared to deliver my “She’s allowed to use this park just as much as you guys” speech when I heard you say, “Your feet are wrong. Can I help you?”
You proceeded to spend almost an hour with my daughter showing her how to balance and steer, and she listened to you a feat not attained by most adults.
You held her hand and helped her get up when she fell down and I even heard you tell her to stay away from the rails so that she wouldn’t get hurt.
I want you to know that I am proud that you are part of my community, and I want to thank you for being kind to my daughter, even though your friends made fun of you for it.
She left the skate park with a sense of pride and with the confidence that she can do anything, because of you.
