We know it’s kitten season, and to be sure, kittens are adorable. But adopting an older cat is pretty special, too!
This adoption story is about an older cat who enjoyed life with us a little longer than most before she found a good match. Most of our animals tend to go pretty fast; the average length of stay at TCHS is 10 days or fewer. This 8-year-old cat arrived on Dec. 31, 2022; she was adopted on March 26, 2023. It’s hard to say why it took so long for her to find the right person, but in the end she did and that’s all that matters. Her name is now Stormy, but her forecast (and outlook!) is sunny and bright.
“I wanted to get a cat because I had just moved to St. Cloud for school, and I fell in love with her at first sight. She was just sunbathing in her kennel and looked sooo peaceful. She took awhile to warm up to me, but ever since she’s been nothing but an angel. Stormy is a very sleepy cat who naps most of the day while I'm at work. As soon as I'm home I get greeted by her meows for attention and food. I don't think I've been able to use my computer for more than five minutes before she tries to get on it and demand cuddles. She LOVES catnip and hair ties, but none of the other toys I got her so far, LOL. She's more of a sleepy gal. She always wakes me up by stepping on my chest and can never get enough cuddles. The best couch spot is hers now; she loves the good view of the street and the prime bird-watching spot. She's an older cat but she fits in perfectly with my life.”
