Update: Fat Tabby



Back in June I did a post about a fat old tabby cat.

When his owners got divorced, neither one of them wanted to keep him. They ended up dumping him into a cat rescue shelter, where he sat in a tiny cage all day, every day for almost a year.

During my daily walk, which runs past this shelter, I would always see him hunched over in his tiny cage, by the front window. It broke my heart.

Well, ladies and gents, I’m pleased to announce that the fat tabby has been adopted!

Apparently some little old lady decided he was a perfect companion and picked him up last week!

In his cage is now a kitten, who will no doubt he adopted shortly as well. (The kittens are always the first to find homes).

Well, anyway, I was really touched that this tabby got adopted during the holiday season. Perhaps it was a Christmas miracle?

I hope he’s happy!

Stories like this break my heart. I hate children, but I love animals. I will be the old lady with all of the fur babies running around her house. I'm so happy that the kitty butt found a home, though. I hope that he has a fantastic life ahead of him!

Glad to hear it, that is great news!

I adopted a couple of cats several years back. They really are the greatest pets.

I also have a few neighborhood strays that I feed twice a day. They're always waiting outside my door...hahaha.

Aww...I'm so glad he found a home :) This was such a cute post, Jen. And I'm glad you found my last comment amusing. I was a little scared that by some odd coincidence she was your favorite celeb or something and that you might be upset over it. LOL! Have you seen her boob job? Google that shit. It's weird.

Have a great weekend, lovely girl!

So good to read that happy ending. Sadly here a lot of cats get returned after Christmas when their owners realise the work involved in keeping them.

I am sure he is happy and making happy his new owner. I have two female cats both adopted and they are the candy of my life. :)

Mouthwash said...

I remember that story! It broke my heart too. I am so so so very happy to hear that he was adopted. I would have taken him home.

I am like Bonnie - I can't stand kids, but animals I absolutely adore. I would have an entire farm if I could.

Aww, now I miss my cat. My mom should have given him to the animal shelter instead of just letting him run loose. :(
