Even before Britta Bergeson met Justice the cat, she knew she loved her.

The 8-year-old spotted the blind kitty on the Arizona Humane Society‘s website recently and knew in her heart that the cat would one day be hers.

According to the shelter, the young girl was so smitten, she drew pictures of the cat in her home — including a picture below, announcing “I love you” — and proceeded to beg and plead with her family to go to the shelter and adopt her.

A happy home, after all, was just what sweet Justice deserved. The cat came to the AHS blind, and her eyes were removed by its medical team to prevent infection and make the cat more comfortable. Something about this cutie clearly spoke to the youngster, and, at some point, her family was convinced.

On March 23rd “the Bergeson family came in and right away asked to see Justice,” says adoptions supervisor Vanessa Crues, who was there that day. “The family’s grandpa, aunts, and cousins were all there to witness the adoption and support the little girl.”

The moment Britta saw Justice, it was waterworks, Crues says.

“She started crying and it was an instant love connection,” she recalls. “Justice just melted in her lap and was so calm with her new friend. The family was very emotional. Love connections like these are what make this job so rewarding, especially for a cat like Justice who really needed to find a great home!”

The pair’s instant connection even helped another kitty find a home. The shelter says the girl’s aunt and cousins were so moved by Justice’s connection with Britta, that they adopted a cat of their own that day.
