Flopsy, a dog, and Mopsy, a cat, did not have a forever home. They were born in different places and did know each other at first. In fact, they didn't even have names to begin with. Their mamas lived in old buildings that didn't have people living in them. It was a very scary world to them. The mamas did the best they could, but life was not easy.
One day, the mamas were hunting in the same alley. They had their little ones with them, and that's how Flopsy and Mopsy met. They liked each other right away and wanted to play. However, they had to wait until the mamas were done hunting. They all went back to where Flopsy and his family were staying to share the food. This went on for several days until a human found them and took all of them to a shelter.
Flopsy and Mopsy were not in the same part of the shelter, so they didn't see each other any more. They thought about each other and really wished they could play again. A woman walked into the shelter on a bright, sunny morning wanting to adopt a puppy. She loved animals and was a very kind person. When the clerk showed her the dogs, she immediately wanted Flopsy. The clerk told her that Flopsy had come in with a family of cats. Would she be interested in a kitten? The animals were so glad to see each other that the woman knew she needed both of them. Life became very happy and good when Flopsy and Mopsy were in their new home. They had a favorite story they liked to read:
