Bandit, an 18-year-old Tonkinese, was surrendered to the Stafford County Animal Shelter in Virginia after his owner could no longer care for him. The sweet old cat was having a hard time at the shelter, still looking for his owner. Thankfully, he was adopted and is adjusting well in his new home. “He’s a sweetheart,” posted his new human, in a comment on the Stafford County Animal Shelter’s Facebook post about Bandit.

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Monday, we introduced you to Assisi Animal Health’s new DentaLOOP, on Tuesday, we ran the final installment of our three part series on moving with cats, on Wednesday, I shared a Ruby memory, on Thursday we featured a wooden scratching post and trackball toy, and on Friday we reviewed PetFusion’s cooling blanket.

We’ve all seen videos of cats drinking from faucets. Most of the time, the human servants turn the water on, but this kitty figured out how to do it all by himself. Enjoy!

Have a great weekend!

7 Comments on Mews and Nips: 18-Year-Old Cat Adopted from Shelter

  1. If I wanted to adopt a cat from my shelter, I would be interested in having the oldest one…they can have wonderful personalities from having lived such a long life

  2. I’m so happy that Bandit has a home. I wish more adopters would consider adopting an older and/or special needs cat. I have done so and I have been so blessed to have these special kitties in my life!

  3. So happy that Bandit found a family that will care for him. My motto is when you adopt an animal, you adopt them to their last day. It is your duty to take care of them.

  4. This is beyond heartbreaking. I have promises from my sons that should something happen to my husband and me, they will adopt our kitties as their own.

  5. It’s heartwarming to read that an old cat surrendered to a shelter was able to get into a loving home. God bless the people who adopted Bandit. I hope he has a happy life in his new home.
