It’s an amazing thing when you are able to find fur-ever homes for cats who are no longer tiny kittens. People frequently overlook the “mature” cat, even though they are wonderful animals! We were fortunate enough to have two such cats be adopted in early 2018: Opie and Jojo. Jojo (first photo) was a totally affectionate girl who was about 10 1/2 and could have some issues with other cats, so we were starting to despair about finding a fur-ever home for her where she would get the attention that she wanted. Then a wonderful young woman fell in love with her! It was time for Jojo’s annual visit — and we found out that Jojo needed a routine dental cleaning. Even with no extractions, they are not inexpensive!
The second cat was a large, fluffy, leash-trained orange boy named Opie (second photo). Opie was 8-10 years old and also asthmatic. We had him in foster care for 7 1/2 years! When Bobby wanted to adopt him, it was truly an excellent match! Opie was also of the age where a dental cleaning was in order. He too had no extractions, but the grant money helped us afford this necessary care for Opie.
Both cats have been adopted for some months now and are loving their new homes!
