This rescue tortie climbed into her human's lap and never left. Now she's quite the adventurer! (Gallery)
She climbed into her lap and unknowingly into her human's heart. Now she's her human's most trusted partner and her adventure buddy!
Meet Eevee the cat!
It all started with in the local mechanic shop, where Emily brought her car in to be fixed and met 4 teeny kittens. Eevee and her three kittens were born in the closet of a mechanic's shop, and the owner didn't know what to do with them.
Emily decided to take them all to foster while she tried to find them homes.
"First night I brought Eevee and her three siblings home. They were all still so skittish around me so I just sat on the floor in the bathroom I was keeping them in and waited.
As they played they started to trust me more but still kept their distance mostly. That was until Eevee walked up to me, climbed up the side of my leg, which was quite a hurdle at the time, and quietly fell asleep in my lap," Emily said.
"As if her approval cleared me to her siblings they all soon followed and fell asleep on my legs in a line, all four of them.
It was one of my favorite moments of their kittenhood and one of the first times I noticed Eevee was special."
"Eevee, who at the time was simply Kitten No. 3, started to stand out: She was outgoing, confident, and eager for my attention.
The plan was not to keep any of them, but Kitten No. 3 had other ideas."
Soon one day Emily discovered Eevee's love for adventures.
"She was eager to go for walks and explore the backyard. It wasn't until she was about 4 or 5 months old though that she came with me on our first hike together — and she loved it!
She was walking ahead of me like she knew the trail already. She was born to be an adventure cat, and I am incredibly lucky to have been the human she ended up with."
The passenger seat of the truck now belongs to Eevee!
Emily gets plenty of stares from people on her hiking adventures.
"I got 'that's a really funny looking dog' by someone. People are generally good humored about it. I'm used to the stares and the 'is that a cat!?' reactions."

It's funny, but Emily was not much of a cat person until she met Eevee...
"It is amazing how much they can change us. She would leave such a massive void now if I were to lose her."
Here's Eevee doing what she loves best!
Here's a short clip of Eevee doing what she loves most, taking me for a hike. She actually knows this trail really well now. This is our local favorite, and she's been here enough times to know the trail and follow it. It's really a shame the Chattahoochee river is so gross. Big 'ol brown river. 👍 #chattahoocheeriver
People who don't like cats just haven't met the right cat yet. :)
