Finishing off National Pet Day with an incredible success story!
Wesley, yes the same Wesley we posted about last week, has found a purrfect companion in Barbara!
Wesley is a 13 year old thyroid cancer survivor who was dumped by his owners at the high kill Carson Shelter the day before Christmas because they were moving. He was dropped off with a bottle of pills that they said he had to take daily in order to simulate his thyroid (which was removed to rid the cancer). Unfortunately, there were only 3 pills in the bottle and the shelter was unable to refill them. The shelter called our rescue for help in rescuing him and we could not say no after hearing his story.
Wesley quickly turned into a volunteer favorite because of his uber sweet personality! Although we did not think taking a daily pill was a big deal, we did not know how receptive adopters would be to him and how long it would take to get him rehomed. Being a senior kitty is hard enough, but a hypothyroid senior kitty who needs a daily pill is quite a challenge! Fortunately, Wesley's amazing personality and sweet looks makes him quite a charmer.... He loves being pet and being around people. And then in came Barbara last week!
Barbara is a retired nurse who had lost her beloved cat to cancer after having him for over 15 years. She was not actively looking to get another cat so soon after her last one passed, but she saw Wesley at the Petsmart on Thursday in the window and could not get him off her mind... She came Saturday during our adoption event to meet him, and then came back Sunday to adopt him! We could not have even dreamed of a more purrfect match! Being a nurse, Barbara is not phased at all by Wesley's condition and Wesley was certainly smitten with Barbara! Cupid was certainly working his magic putting these two together!
Wesley is now thriving in his new home and Barbara is loving her new kitty companion.
This could not have happened without the help of our volunteers, fosters, transporters and everyone who donates and helps in any small way to Carson Cats Rescue.
