14 Year Old Brother And Sister Cats Get Adopted Together

Two 14 year old cats were left behind and couldn’t find a home. They were often overlooked at the shelter because of their age. “No one wanted them because they are older, but I think they are pretty cool,” said their new human via reddit.

They were brought to a no-kill shelter where they were there for about one and a half years till they met their human. “…I saw them and instantly fell in love with them…. [The shelter] didnt want to charge me for them because they are older and wanted to get them into a home.”

“They are brother and sister. These guys have been amazingly chill. They sit back and sleep while I do work and they play around with each other. Best cats I have ever met.”

“They are 14… but they are energetic as a 2 year old.”

    Thank you so very much for being a good human. Who ever left them behind better have a damned good excuse. I could not abandon my elderly girls, after all the years we have been together. May their time with you be special for all of you.

    What a wonderful person to see beyond their age and give these two adorable cats a home. The photo of them on the bed is so sweet.

    14 years???? And my babies are barely 2 years old.. still a long way to go! Bless you for being a great parent!

    What a wonderful thing they found their own human❤…and what hopeful little faces. I used to foster cats from a no-kill shelter…one had been in for a year and did not interact with anyone. I took him for a month (that’s about how long it takes for them to turn back into a cat). A couple weeks later there was an adoption event & he got to go; had quite the purrsonality, & he got adopted. Fostering for 2 weeks to a month makes all the difference. Hooray for these sweet babies, & many thanks to the shelter & workers/volunteers who went the extra mile with them. Good job!

  21. PikoCat says:

    Such a good person to adopt those two cats! Some people would not want to adopt them because of their old age, but this person did the right thing to give the kitties a good and loving home. I have to admit that I would maybe not adopt them for their age… :(

  29. Jamie's mommy says:

    Thanks to the kind person who looked beyond age to adopt these adorable cats. Sad to think that 14 years of love can be thrown away but this pair’s love continues. The new human for these two has my respect. Bringing home a senior animal changes one’s life as it has changed mine. Compassion in this world goes a long way. I appreciate this story being shared and the person who shared a home with these two angels.

  30. Amanda says:

    Thank you so much for taking a chance on this pair. Having older cats can be extraordinarily rewarding. After spending 14 years on this planet, they are wise enough to know exactly what you have done for them, and they will forever appreciate you for it.

  31. Deb says:

    Big thank you to the adopter! They ought to stay together and you knew it :)

  35. Mary says:

    this is such a nice story. Thanks for giving them a chance.

  36. I am so happy for these two elders and for their new human family. The next cat I adopt as a pal for my 3-year old will be an adult about his age or older. They are so appreciative and loyal, they KNOW you have taken them in because of love. May your new family enjoy utmost happiness and appreciation for each other.

  37. Deb says:

    Truly happy for all of you and grateful to this fine human.

  38. Cinda says:

    I’m so glad their daddy found them. They are a couple of cuties!

  42. Yvonne says:

    I have a 14 year old cali and you’d never know she was 14. She is very healthy, happy (most of the time) and can leap and run as well as the younger cats. Yet she is mellow and likes to chill a lot. Older cats rock!

  43. Kate says:

    You have my sincere admiration. Thank you.

  44. Iffat says:

    What sweethearts. Thank you for providing them with a lovely home together!
