Watch a Cute Couple Adopt Their First Cat

Buzzfeed tagged along as Megan and Terence picked out their first furry family member. It’s adorbs.

Meet Megan and Terence, a couple about to adopt a cat. And the folks at BuzzFeed and Rachael Ray Nutrish are letting us in on their little adventure in pet matchmaking. Megan is looking for a four-legged friend she can teach how to use the toilet. Terence meanwhile – a self-proclaimed dog person – doesn’t think they should make their decision based upon cuteness.

The quirky-cute couple is interviewed in this feel-good three-minute video that’s worth a watch. When asked to name things they love as much as cats, without missing a beat, Megan proclaims: “Pizza!” Terence is adorably perturbed. We then learn that Megan has a lot of stuffed animals that she treats like real live animals. It’s hard not to smile at the playful banter going on here.

After a humorous back and forth, Megan and Terence go to Heaven On Earth & Perry’s Place, the Perry MacFarlane Sanctuary, in North Hollywood, Calif., where they play with all kinds of cats to find the one who will become their new family member. They even debate getting a kitten for a minute, but eventually they pick an orange cat named Crush who’s affectionate and laid back.

“I don’t understand why we didn’t do it earlier!” Megan exclaims of welcoming a rescue cat into their lives.
