Woman Posts A Story About Adopting A Cat Named After A Breakfast Sandwich, It Goes Viral

Pets make our lives at least 99% better and that’s a scientific fact (just don’t bother looking for a source, you already know it’s true if you have a furry friend at home). In all seriousness though, scientific studies have shown that having a four-legged friend can lower one’s stress, decrease blood pressure and even cholesterol levels.

However, the bond between a pet and its human is not only based on one-sided benefits – by welcoming a furry buddy into your life, you can contribute to its health and happiness as well. If you have taken in a pet dog or a cat from a shelter, you’ve probably witnessed their everlasting gratitude and love towards you. That’s what happened to Sarah – a pharmacy student – who came to a shelter looking for a friend. She was met by a skinny cat named Jimmy Dean and instantly fell in love. Scroll down below to read Sarah’s post and maybe you will, too.

This young woman shared a wholesome story on how she adopted an adorable cat named Jimmy Dean

“So I went to go look at some cats today at a shelter and there was a little skinny cat named Jimmy Dean (like the breakfast sandwiches) and he was purring and sitting on my lap and I asked the volunteer what the adoption process was like and she explained it and then said, “Hear that, Jimmy Dean, you might have a home for Christmas!” Sarah posted on her Tumblr blog. Little did she expect that her post about an adopted cat would soon go viral, with people enquiring about Jimmy Dean and his well-being.

Tumblr users felt like they needed an update on the life of Jimmy Dean and wrote that they need “updates on the boy! Is he okay? Is he happy? Is he being spoiled?” Sarah soon responded to the request, saying that Jimmy Dean is, in fact, being spoiled. Even more so, the happy duo is soon to be celebrating their first year together! “He’s a smelly little jerk but I love him with all my heart,” Jimmy Dean’s owner Sarah added.

Hi! Jimmy Dean’s owner here! I’m just going to answer this question before it gets asked because I’ve received this comment a lot on tumblr too. Yes, I am aware that Jimmy Dean was a famous actor/singer, not just associated with the breakfast food company, I made the comment about the breakfast sandwiches because at the time I was adopting him I was hearing commercials for them on the tv/radio like 10 times a day so that was what my mind went to when I saw his name was Jimmy Dean

Don't listen to the jerks. I'm vaguely aware of the actor, but anyone willing to jump on you because you thought of something different to them isn't worth the hassle. Go and give Jimmy Dean a hug from me!
