Many of us would feel that having a cat as part of our family for over 20 years is a blessing. We would never consider taking him to a shelter for being too old!
This is what happened to Rascal. This deaf cat was dropped off at Spotsylvania Animal Shelter in Fredericksburg, Virginia “for being old and having accidents in the house.”
At over 20 years old is not quite sure why he is where he is? He is been with his family all his life, now he is in a strange place, all by himself! The shelter put out an appeal, hoping Rascal would not be left there for too long.
There was to be good news for Rascal as one kind-hearted lady happened to be online one night and saw his story! She decided Rascal would have a new home to spend his remaining years in.
“I was scrolling last night and saw him. He just pulled on the right number of heart strings,”she said in a story by Love Meow.
“I just couldn’t stand thinking about him spending another night in a shelter,” she added.
The staff at the shelter couldn’t be more thrilled to see Rascal get his happy ending – a real forever home.
“…HUGE thanks to his new mom, Meredith, for opening her heart and home. And to Meredith’s husband for loving Meredith enough to agree to let her bring Rascal home:),” they wrote.
What’s more, the cat mom shared that he’s “settling in nicely” to his new home!
Meredith told Love Meow that they had an upcoming vet visit to remedy a few of the kitty’s health issues so he can live the healthiest, most comfortable life possible.
“However his story ends, it definitely will end with me,” she said in the story.
