The couple contacted the shelter to say they wanted to adopt Nirvana after all, then waited to hear back, hoping for good news. They hoped they weren’t too late, but as it turned out, Nirvana was always meant to be their kitten.
“[My girlfriend] had told me, ‘I have bad news and good news. The bad news is the cat got adopted today,’ and I was a bit upset considering we were waiting to hear back from the shelter,” Ritchie said. “But when she had told me, ‘The good news is it was by us,’ I was overjoyed and thought that it was the cutest surprise ever.”
