One day, Candace was on her way to grab her morning coffee, just like any other day. She pulled up to her favorite coffee spot, swung the door open, and out of nowhere, this cat leaped right into her car.
This dapper gray fellow looked at her like, “What took you so long? I’ve been waiting here for hours.”
This stray furball acted like a pro, as if he’d been doing it forever, and he wasn’t budging. Candace was taken aback at first, but eventually, she shrugged and said, “Fine, you want to go? Then let’s go.”
People on the road would spot her, and everyone had the same reaction: “Is that a cat hanging out your window?!”
They’re usually surprised, but Candace doesn’t find Beef’s behavior surprising at all. From the moment she found him, he was a mama’s boy, immediately showing he wasn’t going anywhere.
It was like he super-glued himself to her car.
Beef had made up his mind the second he hopped into Candace’s car, so she didn’t have much of a choice but to adopt him as her furry baby.
Who knows? Maybe Beef had a sixth sense for choosing the right car. Candace explains:
“I’ve been doing animal rescue for about 20 years now. I had gotten a call that there were kittens in an alley and that there was no sign of mom. That’s how I found Beef, and he had to be with me.”
“Beef was just special and in the end, I just fell in love with him.”
He’s Candace’s shadow, always right by her side. If she heads out to the garden, Beef is there. If she goes anywhere, he’ll be waiting at the door.
Well, naturally, Candace needed to find a way Beef was safe while she let him follow her everywhere. So, that’s how they began leash walking.
“Beef’s favorite place in the entire world is the car.”
I wish my cats loved car rides as much! As for Beef, Candace isn’t entirely sure if it’s because of the motion, the fact that he can nap while “accompanying her,” or because he can play without ever leaving her side.
Beef loves sticking his head out of the window when Candace drives. She loves that he’s so well-behaved, she can explore new places with her furry co-pilot.
“Usually when I’m out on the street, people are shocked. They think it’s cool that there’s a cat on a leash, and then they’re really happy about it.”
Beef is super friendly with everyone he meets.
He’ll even purr and rub against anyone who comes close. Even when they come across a dog in a pet-friendly store, Beef stands his ground and looks at the dog as if to say, “How dare you, doggo!”
Beef is quite the confident feline with a charming cattitude. He brings joy to many, and I hope his story brought a smile to your face too!
Take a peek at these two cuties! It’s been a while since I’ve witnessed such a sweet love:
Candace believes Beef is the best gift she’s ever received in her life.
“For me, Beef was my gift from the universe for all of my work. He’s absolutely amazing!”
I couldn’t agree more! Beef is a treasure, and Candace’s dedication to helping animals in need has earned her a remarkable pet like Beef. Don’t you think?
