Admitted to a nursing home, she had to abandon her cats
An upsetting abandonment with unexpected consequences for this woman and her cats.
When she entered the nursing home about three years ago, Missy and Zipper’s mistress – two 16-year-old Burmese cats – had to leave them behind. She was strictly forbidden to take her two beloved tomcates with her.
A difficult decision to make
Determined to find the best solution for her best friends, the woman then tries her luck on the family. Unfortunately, no one wants to get his two cats back. So she has no choice but to go to the Arundel County Animal Care & Control (AACAC) in Virginia.
Devastated, the old lady also left very precise instructions to the subject of her cats, not wanting to leave anything to chance. She indicated that they had never been separated, what they liked to do and eat, their little habits … A gesture that touched everyone at the shelter.
For its part, the shelter posted a nice ad to try to find a home for the two care cats who were not to be separated. Obviously, just adopting two 16-year-old cats isn’t easy, but an Oregon woman called.
She indicated that her parents lived next door to the shelter and that they would be a perfect family for tomcates. Finally, the parents came to the shelter and the love affair was immediately between them and Missy and Zipper.
Thanks to the beautiful story of Missy and Zipper, many other age-old refugee discussions were adopted.
