One of our all-star kitties, Velvet, has just been adopted! Her new mom, Anne Marie, had admired her at a past Petco DC adoption event, but with two cats at home, she hesitated before taking on a third. Several weeks went by, and Anne Marie’s older cat was diagnosed with cancer, and suddenly passed away. While she was grieving this loss, Anne Marie thought to stop in to check if Velvet was still available…and, as fate would have it, she was! Up until this point TH Adoption Advocates were surprised that she hadn’t yet been adopted, but once we witnessed the joy that gorgeous, green-eyed Velvet brought her grieving, new owner, we now know it was meant to be!
And this just in: we have three new kitties available for adoption at Tails High. Carter, Lucy, and Maggie have just come to us from a rather tragic background. Authorities recently uncovered an illegitimate animal rescue in Maryland, where 67 cats were being held, sometimes in one room all at once! We’re so glad Anne Arundel County Animal Control rescued these hoarded felines. Many of the rescued cats are still at the Anne Arundel Animal Shelter, but Carter, Lucy, and Maggie have come to us for cage-free living and loving socialization with their TH foster parents.
Carter is a gray tabby, around 5-6 years old. His foster mom described him as a very active “dancer.” His cohorts, Maggie and Lucy, are petite sisters with a very striking black and charcoal tabby coloring. They are both around 18 months old, and while they do not necessarily have to be adopted together, they are perfectly accustomed to having another cat around the house. All three kitties have spent most of their lives at Cool Cats Rescue, but happily they will soon be featured at upcoming TH events.
An investigation of Cool Cats Rescue is ongoing. Learn more about the incident in these following news articles:
