It is more difficult for old animals from shelters to find their new home. People often prefer charming little companions. But there are exceptions
After one family visited a pet shelter, they decided to adopt the oldest cat, 19-year-old Gus. You can ask the reason. But in fact, the cat was adopted by the oldest woman in the family, Mrs. Penny, who turned 101 this year.
The story began a month before Gus’ adoption. Around the same time, Gus was brought to the Okatoba County Animal Welfare Society. Because his former owner could no longer afford to raise him. Upon arrival at the shelter, Gus received the love of the staff.
Due to the age of the cat, the shelter staff feared that it would take him a long time to find a new owner. However, to their surprise, he was taken away a few weeks after being submitted for adoption. His new mother, Lady Penny, unfortunately lost her beloved cat. So she was looking for an old companion. The two met as if it was fate.
For Penny, Gus was the perfect match for everything she needed at that time. The charming cat quickly got used to the new home. Now Gus lives happily with his family and new mom. He likes to watch squirrels and stay close to Penny.
It is often more difficult for older pets to find a new family. But Gus, this elderly cat, was lucky enough to find a new companion very soon. We’re happy for Gus and Penny!
