Every adopted pet has a start to their journey. The adjustment to a new home, a new family, a new life - it all takes a lot of effort. We, as owners who adopt with the best of intentions, never really know what that adjustment feels like to our pets. 

Well, allow this adopted cat to explain to you exactly what it feels like. 

Welcome to Meowmoirs - the diary of a cat.

His name is Earnie, he's an older cat, and he's been up for adoption for a little while now. But the day has finally come, and he's found a new forever home. Except, does it feel like a forever home to him?

When One Hollywood Couple Decided To Adopt a Pet Lion At Home

Tippi Hedren, perhaps most famous for her role in Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds, is an actress of formidable gifts. But her role as an animal-rights activist and conservationist might well be Hedren's most lasting legacy. For decades, her Roar Foundation and the animal sanctuary, Shambala Preserve, in California have advocated for big (and not so big) cats—from lions and leopards to bobcats and servals—and she's been honored with a host of humanitarian and conservation awards through the decades.

In 1971, LIFE photographer Michael Rougier spent time with Hedren; her teenage daughter, Melanie Griffith, her then-husband, the agent and movie producer, Noel Marshall; and others at their home in California. Also in attendance: Neil, a 400-pound mature lion, who occasionally slept in the same bed as Griffith and, as these pictures attest, had the run of the house, from the kitchen to the living room to the swimming pool.

Decades and several attacks later -- one lion clawed daughter Melanie Griffith in the face during the production of the 1981 film Roar and required that Griffith undergo surgery -- Hedren admitted that having a lion live in her home alongside her children was "stupid beyond belief."

Bus Station Employees Do The Sweetest Thing For Stray Dogs

The employees at a bus stop in Brazil came across three local dogs who appeared to be cold as they scavenged outside, looking for food and shelter. They allowed the dogs (Max, Pitoco and Zoinho) to come inside the station for the winter season in Brazil and even fashioned new beds for the trio using old tires. The story of the generous employees was posted by local passerby and animal lover, Fabiane Rosa. "These communal dogs have a much more dignified life than some who are victims of maltreatment and neglect, hidden behind the walls," Rosa said in her post. "This world is not the privilege of humans, God created animals to teach us to love without conditions"
