Reader Casey Post who volunteers with the Medina Co SPCA in Ohio sent me this great adoption story. Shared with permission:
Spookie (the black cat) is 13 years old. He first came to the shelter as a result of an abuse case (his person was convicted). Super scared of new stuff, hides all the time, but so, so sweet and loves to be petted (you just have to reach into wherever he is to do it).
Spookie was eventually adopted out last year to a guy who apparently didn’t take great care of him – he was returned to the shelter along with this kitten – both VERY hungry (like they hadn’t eaten in days) and covered in fleas.
It was decided to adopt them out together, since Spookie loves Mushu so much and Mushu may help him adapt to new situations. Mushu is easygoing and friendly and loves his Spookie.
A senior cat and a five month old kitten. Most people who want a senior, don’t want a kitten and most people who want a kitten aren’t in the market for a senior.
But today, they found a home. Together.
There are homes for all of them – you just have to find them!
Thank you Casey for this happy story. All the hopes…
