Hiding out behind a trash can in the alley is this beautiful cat.
She dosn't know that she is beautiful because she is an alley cat.
Abused and left alone she longs for someone to love her.
A police officer walking by spots her and with kind words trys to coax her closer.
She shys away, day after day he drops by with treats and little by little she inches closer
until one day she nudges his leg as he bends down and then his outstretched hand is
accepted and the friendship begins. She trust him more and more each day
before she knows it she follows him home. Her life has changed, she no longer
lives in an alley. She lives in a beautiful home with her own bed and food anytime
she wants. Now she has a name chosen by her new friend. Her name is Fancy.
