She went to the shelter to get a kitten, ended up falling in love with a senior cat
When a women went to the shelter to pick up a kitten, she had no idea this senior cat would steal her heart.
Meet Toe Beanz
“This little lady was surrendered to the humane society along with her sister that she was bonded too. Unfortunately, both were in rough shape and her sister didn't make it,” the woman shared on reddit.
“She is the sweetest cat I have ever met and spent her first 24 hours snuggled up to and ontop of my head. She may be an older gal but she still has lots of life left in her.”
“They were surrendered from an owner who had recently had a baby and wasn't giving them the care they needed. The fact that they got this bad makes me really angry but I have to keep reminding myself that I don't know everyone's personal situation.”
The funny thing is, this new cat mom grew up in a household full of dogs and cats and always considered herself a dog person. But this old gal changed her mind.
“She's completely changed that for me. She’s very playful, loves running around and chasing god knows what. We were looking at the older cats at the shelter while waiting to see the kittens and she came right up to the edge of the cage and just started playing with me. When we asked shelter staff is we could possibly take her out of the cage they immediately gave us a look that said "oh she chose you, you're going home with her".”
Sometimes cats choose us. Consider it an honor.
