Gus is a 20-year-old shelter cat exceptional healthy.🐈💖
This touching story from the Humane Society in Catawba County, North Carolina, will warm the heart of any animal lover.
Jane Bowers, executive director of the Humane Society of Catawba County, told we that his original owner was “heartbroken” when they had to surrender him.
The Humane Society of Catawba County (HSCC) in North Carolina revealed last week that a senior cat named Gus Gus that had just arrived at the shelter was adopted by a 101-year-old woman.
What a wonderful woman to help this sweet kitty. ❤️
Once at the shelter, Gus was given a health screening one that Bowers says showed he was in “exceptional health”—a big win for a kitty who’s nearing 20 years old!
But they knew that having to spend his golden years in a shelter environment was going to take a toll on the wellbeing of a cat his age.
A Strange Coincidence. Gus likes whatching the squirrels outside their door. 💖
It wouldn’t be long until Bowers’ concerns were put to rest. Shortly after Gus’s arrival, the shelter director received an unexpected call from a family looking for a pet who could be a companion for their aging mother.
More specifically, they asked if there was a senior cat they could adopt.
The family explained to Bowers that their 101-year-old mother, Penny, recently ‘lo.st’ her cat, and though they’d given her a stuffed cat to cuddle with instead, she simply wasn’t pleased with something that didn’t purr.
So much mutual love in the photo of the elderly lady and her senior cat. ❤️
We were cautious because of the age of all parties, but the family said they were willing to care for the cat on behalf of their mother

This sweet lady lived that long to find this baby and give her smothering love for the end of their lives. How selfless and beautiful they are. ❤️
