She returned to the store just five minutes before it closed.
"I paid $10 for her and got 27 years of love," she said. "My best investment yet."
Over their many years together, Tiffany Two has proven to be much more than a pet to Voorhees - she's been a loyal friend, remaining by her human's side through thick and thin.
"I've always felt that Tiffany is there for me. It's hard to articulate this, but I just have the sense that she knows when I'm not feeling good, or if I am sad. I just have that feeling. She is just always there, you know, to cuddle up to me," said Voorhees.
When asked what she's learned most from the decades she's spent in the company of a cat like Tiffany Two, Voorhees says that it's all too easy to forget the role pets play in our lives - and she's had the same one in her life long enough to know that better than most.
"I think sometimes we humans are so busy looking at other things that we forget to look down to see the most loving support system in the whole wide world sitting right there at your feet," she said.
