A couple of weeks ago, we featured a tortie who lives with her 103-year-old human in an assisted living facility. Today’s story of 20-year-old Daisy, who was adopted by 94-year-old Jan, a resident at Covington Senior Living in Orem, UT, is equally heartwarming. Jan had always considered cats family, and missed them when she moved to an assisted living facility. Covington Senior Living not only approved the adoption, they even said they’d make it easy for Jan, who has mobility issues, by feeding the cat and cleaning the litter box daily for a small monthly fee. Now that’s a model that should be duplicated at every assisted living facility in the world! Read more about Daisy and Jan on Best Friend’s blog.

Today’s video compilation of cats who want to cuddle will leave you with a big smile on your face – enjoy!
Have a great weekend!
