Bonded Senior Cats Find New Beginning at Year’s End

Have we got a tail for you! Senior ladies Buffy and Blitzen arrived at the Society thick as thieves. Though differing in appearance (Buffy is more prettily plump and gray while Blitzen is black and sleek), the 13-year-olds are undoubtedly soul sisters and required a home that would embrace them both. The pair of lovebugs waited about a month for their new beginning, and they struck gold upon meeting Jim, Breenah, and young Ry.


Jim’s cat had recently passed, and the trio was looking to possibly add an older, relaxed feline to the family. Adoption Services Representative Julia recommended they visit with Buffy and Blitzen. Surrounded by double the love, there was no way Jim, Breenah, and Ry were leaving without the bonded pair. “I think they are going to be really happy,” Julia said.


Buffy and Blitzen were the last adoptions of 2017, closing out an amazing day; nine dogs and 18 other cats found their fur-ever homes on December 30!


Approximately 8,495 animals’ happy happened in 2017.
