He’s fifteen years old and he loves to be held. If not held his meow is so loud that you have to pick him up just to get some peace and quiet. Someone needed to come up with a solution.
A win-win solution really, a win for Dougie and a win for the staff at Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland. Because as one of the staff at the shelter said, “when he’s not being held, Dougie’s meow can be heard from galaxies far away.”
That needed a fix that would work for the senior cat and not slow down the staff, a way for him to be held while they worked. And they came up with the perfect solution.

“We thought creatively and decided a baby bjorn allowed Robert [Weimer] to both hold Dougie and do his job effectively ???? And, we think it’s pretty much the cutest thing we’ve seen, ever.”
Dougie, who had been fighting inflammatory bowel disease, was just put up for adoption this week. Luckily for him, that Facebook post went viral and he had a great new home within a day!
Since Dougie already has a fabulous new home, we’d like to remind you that your local shelter is still full of pets that need great homes! If you’re interested in finding a pet from the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland, you can check out their website here.
