102-Year-Old Woman Fell In Love With A Shelter Cat


A 102-year-old woman found her a little companion, a 2-year-old shelter cat, when she held him in her arms for a photo.

“It just filled my heart,” Barbara Bates, the adoption coordinator of Montgomery County Animal Shelter said. “The kitty just snuggled right up to her. Matched her outfit she had on.” (Huffington Post)

“I said, ‘Iona, do you mind if I take your picture? And she said, ‘Honey, I sure hope I don’t break your camera.'”

Iona recently lost her cat that she had had for 10 years. Her son took her to the shelter last week. “I needed a companion,” she said.

When she cuddled with Edward, she was smitten.

“The way he cuddled upon my shoulder reminded me of the cat I’d just lost,” she said. “Oh my, he’s very happy.”

Iona’s son promised to take care of Edward and he would remain a member of the family should anything happen to his mother.

“My photo tells me Edward immediately sensed that Iona had lots of love and security to offer him,” Bates added.

“To me, an animal gives you life, that a person can’t, or material things can’t,” Bates said. “You come home from a stressful day, and they want to kiss on you. It just makes everything bad go away. So it just touched my heart. And I’m just glad that what I felt came out in the photo.”

Iona, a spry 102-year-old, found her a great companion, Edward the shelter cat. She fell in love when she held him in her arms for a picture. “The way he cuddled upon my shoulder reminded me of the cat I’d just lost.”

A Boy Found a Stray Cat in a Rusty Boat. 13 Years Later, They are Still Together


A stray cat was found in a rusted out boat by a 10-year-old boy 13 years ago. “I fed him some cheese. Been my best bud ever since,” reddit user RRSC14 wrote.

Now at 23, he shared his story: “I found Lester when I went to Wildwood NJ for vacation. We had rented a condo and there was an old rusty boat up on a trailer in the middle of a field by the condo complex. That’s where he dwelled. I first noticed Lester when I saw him leaping in the tall grass here and there. I finally realized he was hunting and eating the grasshoppers that inhabited the overgrown grass.

He was a friendly little guy so he didn’t need much coaxing to approach me so then I fed him some cheese and he followed me inside. I laid on the bed to watch some TV and he curled up on my chest and fell asleep. I was 10 at the time so when my parents came into the room and I immediately shushed them and pointed to my chest where this fist sized kitten was sound asleep they knew we weren’t going home without him. The vet diagnosed him with feline Leukemia, apparently it’s common in strays who have been out in the world a few weeks. Cats with leukemia are thought to only live to 3-4. But Lester is 13 and still rockin’. Been there my whole adult life and my dad jokes that the cat will outlive him.”

Seven the Cat Found in a Box of Discarded Christmas Decorations on the 7th Floor on the 7th Day of Jan


Seven, a sweet little kitten, was found in a box of discarded Christmas decorations in a communal corridor of a tower block in Wandsworth, London.

She is about 3-4 months old. They named her ‘Seven’ because she was found on the seventh floor of the building on January 7th at around 7PM according to RSPCA.

“Seven was found as a terrified little ball inside a litter tray, on top of a huge cardboard box full of old junk and festive paraphemalia,” said RSPCA.

They brought her into the shelter and treated her infection. “She’s very lovely and purrs at the slightest touch, but is understandably a bit timid. We hope when the time is right, we can find her a new forever home which gives her the kindness she deserves.”
