Any kind of animal lover will have their heart warmed by the inspiring story that came from the Humane Society in the Catawba Region of North Carolina.
It is with great regret that we introduce you to Gus, a 19-year-old sanctuary cat that was surrendered to the Humane Society of Catawba Region due to “unexpected circumstances.”
Daily Paws was informed by Jane Bowers, the executive director of the Humane Society of Catawba Region, that his previous owner was “sad” when they had to relinquish him because they loved him very much.
When one considers the prospect of having to find a new home for their cherished pet, it is natural for them to feel a sense of loss. The adventure of this ancient cat, however, does not come to an end at that point.
An examination of Gus’s health was carried out at the shelter, where it was reported by Bowers that the cat was in “amazing health”; this is outstanding news for a cat that is getting close to twenty years of age!
It could be a picture of a cat.
Bowers is concerned that the cat might have to spend the golden years of his life in a shelter, despite the fact that the shelter receives funding for additional health care and assistance from a sister site in Hickory, North Carolina (the Pat Anderson Center for Animal Adoption and Humane Education), which is located nearby.
However, it would not be too much longer until Bowers’ concerns were put to rest. Not long after Gus arrived, the director of the animal shelter received an unexpected phone call from a family looking for a companion animal for their elderly mother’s company.
They were particularly interested in finding out whether there was a senior cat that was up for adoption and may be a companion for their elderly mother.
This family adopted the oldest cat at a shelter for a woman who was looking for a companion who was the same age as her, and the result was a “match made in paradise.”
They were particularly interested in finding out whether there was a senior cat that was up for adoption and may be a companion for their mums. Cent, the family’s 101-year-old matriarch, had just lately been bereaved of her cat, and although they had given her a stuffed cat to comfort her with instead, she was unhappy with anything that did not purr. Despite this, they had given her a plush cat to cuddle with rather.
” We were wary because of the age of all parties, yet the family said they wished to care for the cat on behalf of their mother,” Bowers writes. “We were cautious because of the age of all parties.” It truly was a “marriage made in heaven,” and as a result, the adoption process was expedited and went off without a hitch.
The breathtaking photographs that the shelter shared on Facebook make it very evident that the two of them were destined to be together. Gus is having no trouble adjusting to his new home and particularly enjoys watching the squirrels who live in the area immediately outside their front door.
” With the addition of this beautiful adoption, our family is now complete. Our Great-GrandPAW, who is 19 years old (or 133 years old in human years), has in fact discovered the loving embrace of his new mother, who is the ripe old age of 101.
