A beautiful story that will warm your heart
A 20-year-old cat who was surrendered to a shelter by his former family gets adopted by a 101-year-old lady who had just lots her beloved cat…
Gus was [sur.rendered] by his former owner due to unforeseen circumstances.
How could anyone be so [e.vil] to give up their cat after 20 years. How would they feel to be chucked out because they were old.😠
Once at the shelter, Gus was given a health screening that showed he was (exceptional healthy)— for a 20 year old cat!
However, they knew that having to spend his golden years in a shelter environment was going to take a toll on the wellbeing of a cat his age.
Shortly after Gus’s arrival, the shelter director received an unexpected call from a family looking for a pet who could be a companion for their aging mother. They asked if there was a senior cat they could adopt.
The family explained that their 101-year-old mother, Penny, had recently [lo.st] her cat, and though they’d given her a stuffed cat to cuddle with instead, she simply wasn’t pleased with something that didn’t purr.
At the shelter, staff were cautious because of the age of all parties, but the family said they were willing to care for the cat on behalf on their mother.
The adoption was quickly finalized. It’s rather clear that this duo was meant to be and Gus is already fitting right in at his new home .
