Animal shelters are full of cats who are waiting for their new families, and we’re always happy to read a story about a family who decided to give a kitty her furrever home. Today, we’ll share with you the story of a woman who decided to change the life of not only one fur friend – but two!
Unfortunately, a lot of cats in shelters don’t get a chance to experience a home filled with love. They’re often overlooked because of their age, sickness, or even their appearance.
A kitty named Theo, however, was lucky enough to get adopted by a woman who saw how special he is despite suffering from Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). Once she met him at a Purrfect Pals adoption center, she knew he’d fill her life with joy, and she decided to change his forever.
Since FIV impacts cats’ immune systems, they’re much more prone to sickness as they grow older. Because of that, kitties who suffer from this illness are often left without a home. What most people don’t know, however, is that these fur babies can live long and happy lives if they’re given proper care.
And Theo is proof of that! He spent his days in the shelter just like any healthy kitty would – getting pets, playing around, and being his cheerful little self. He had a best friend, Champ, with whom he spent most of his sanctuary days. It didn’t take long before Theo found out that there was a loving family waiting for him.
According to his new mom, he fell in love with his new family in no time and made himself the king of the castle. He spent his days playing around with his new sister and spreading love and joy in his forever home. Still, Theo’s mom, Kristy, felt like there was something missing.
Day by day, he was overcoming all the prejudices people had about kitties suffering from FIV. His mom gave her all to make Theo feel at home and loved, which is why she decided to open up her heart to a new feline friend – his buddy Champ.
Once she found out how close he and Theo were, she knew reuniting them was the right choice. She wanted nothing more than to make Theo happy, and what better way to do that than to make him spend every day of his life with a friend he loved the most?
After a few weeks, Theo’s mom went back to the shelter to adopt his buddy Champ. When the shelter found him, he was a stray kitty with several injuries.
His recovery wasn’t easy, but his best buddy Theo helped him get through it. Now, they had a chance to spend a peaceful life together, in a home where they’ll feel nothing but love.
When they were finally reunited, they were inseparable. The family loved seeing them happy together, and they were thrilled to be able to give them a loving home, especially considering Theo’s condition.
According to Kristy, her daughter was begging for a feline friend for years. Now, she has two, and she couldn’t be happier! She, Theo, and Champ quickly became best friends, and she truly enjoyed taking care of her new fur buddies.
Theo and Kristy are beautiful examples of how love and an open heart can make wonderful things happen. Despite what she heard about FIV, Kristy knew she could provide Theo with the life every kitty deserves.
She changed his and Champ’s life forever, while they filled her home with joy and made her family the happiest they’ve ever been. This act of kindness is a wonderful reminder of the beauty that we can still find in this world.
If you plan on blessing your life with a kitty, let this story be the one that motivates you to visit your nearest shelter. There are so many fur friends waiting for a home and family they can see as their own.
If there are kitties that need some extra love and attention, such as Theo, don’t walk past them. They’re often the ones that will give their all to show you love and gratitude for giving them a chance to live a long and happy life.
