Adoption Success Story: Katie, Age 14

Whenever a senior kitty gets adopted we are always thrilled as it is rare and very special and meaningful for both the cat and the adopter. Katie’s owner had passed away in December of 2015 and we were able to take her. She spent her time at the adoption center comfortably, but she did not enjoy the company of the other cats.

A few weeks ago a nice lady came in with her daughter. She told us of her recent losses and said she was a senior citizen and needed a cat that was also a senior. She liked Katie who turned 14 in December. We wish the best for Katie and her new mom.

After the adoption we received this note from her daughter: “Thank you EVERYONE for your good wishes — I’m the “daughter.” Mom and I want all of you to know that Katie is deliriously happy in her new home. My father died in 10/16, and “his” cat passed on 1/25, so Mom decided that she and Katie were “two old ladies who needed each other.” Katie cuddles up with Mom and they are inseparable. SRC, you are outstanding. THANK YOU!”
