Whoever ended up taking Perdita home was going to get a year's supply of cat litter from Arm & Hammer after the company heard about her story, according to the newspaper.
After cutting the list to the top 10, staff interviewed prospective Perdita parents, did some background checks and introduced the humans to the grumpy cat. The final choice was made by Perdita herself and she will be heading to her new home in Tennessee, officials said.
Perdita's story was a sad one but now has a happy ending. She was taken to the shelter on Christmas Eve after her original owner died, shelter officials said, according to the News-Journal.
