This sweet story came from our shelter's Facebook Page:
This gave us all happy tears! Yesterday, a man came in and adopted this really sweet fourteen year old cat, Gus. When we asked why he chose a senior, he said with a big smile on his face: “Well, a few years ago I was diagnosed with cancer, and the doctor gave me really bum odds. So when my cat passed away, I didn’t want to get another one. I really missed having a cat, though.
But then the treatment worked, and today the doctor told me he couldn’t find any signs of the cancer. He said I was all clear! So when I left his office, I drove straight here to get myself a cat. I liked Gus right away, but I saw that he was pretty old. Then I thought, ‘Well, I might outlive him, or he might outlive me. It doesn’t really matter. We’re going home.”
