14-Year-Old Cat Finds Purrfect Companion To Share Golden Years With

A match made in heaven! Earlier this year, a friendly 14-year-old gray cat, originally named LL Cool J, was brought into the Anne Arundel County Animal Care and Control in Maryland. The shelter arranged a foster home for this gentle cat so he could live comfortably until the right person came along. 

Little did anyone know, the person who would come along would be the absolute purrfect match and that they would both need each other.

Thank goodness for good people. When a stray cat showed up at Steinbach Fire Department in Manitoba, Canada, the firefighters quickly noticed the cat shivering outside in the snow, peeping through their window. 

The officers opened their doors and began to shower the cat with warmth, care, and love. The stray was able to receive immunization shots and was spayed. The firefighters posted on social media, asking around if someone was missing this lovely little lady, but when no one came forth to claim her, they decided to take care of her themselves and have given her a fitting name - Ember.

Ember is often featured on the station's social media page as "Ember Alerts." But alas, the fire department wanted more for Ember and now Ember has a forever loving home. We wish every stray cat a happy ending.

Animals Before And After Adoption

All you need is love, love, love is all you need. Ain't that the truth. When it comes to animals, love is truly all they want and need. A good home, filled with endless tender love and care, and any pet and flourish into their most beautiful selves. It's so moving to see the transformation, especially if they come from such a broken place, it's difficult to see animals look so ragged and in pain, but after they're taken into a good home, their transformation is the most beautiful of all. 

A huge heartfelt thank you to those who go out of their way to help animals in need, and who adopt those who need more attention and care. The world would do well with more people like you. 

Get ready to see some gorgeous glow ups:

Cat Brings Home Adorable Stray Kitten

Klarieke, a cat owner from Greece, has three adult cats: Jack, Louis, and Stavros. She and her family adopted Stavros just one year ago, Klarieke tells Love Meow, "Stavros lived on the streets and was very ill. He was rescued by a Dutch girl who stays in Zakynthos every summer. She was looking for a home (for the cat) in Holland, so we decided to adopt him." 

"My husband and I said to each other, 'this is the last cat, three is enough," she added. 

That is until Stavros befriended a stray kitten and brought that kitten home.

Sweet-Faced Kitten Finds Forever Home And Endless Love

Be still our hearts! This sweet-faced kitten is so gosh darn adorable, we're melting right where we stand. 

Meet Penelope Fern, a kitten born was a cleft lip who was found outside all alone. She was brought into Meow Village, an all-volunteer feral cat rescue organization located in Aurora, Oregon.

Meow Village told Love Meow, "A TNR (trap-neuter-return) rescuer spotted her while out trapping cats for spay and neuter. It was obvious that the kitten would need extra assessment. A few calls were made and she was in the arms of a Meow Village volunteer within hours."

After a nice, warm bath to get rid of the fleas, the sweet kitten was feeling better and soon dozed off into a peaceful sleep with a belly full of food. 

Selina, a volunteer at Meow Village told Love Meow, "This kitten has a loving sweet spirit. She eats and drinks just great, and it took no time for her to learn the litter box."

Next the kitten was taken to see a specialist about her condition and she was diagnosed with hydrocephalus (water on the brain), blindness, and ataxia (a neurological condition). It is likely more of her symptoms will appear as she ages and she will need special care because of it. However, Penelope is just as happy as any other cat and shows zero signs of suffering. 

Desirae, a staff member at the veterinary hospital, saw Penelope and fell madly in love with her.

Sweet Special Kitten Nudges Her Way Into Reluctant Man's Heart

What an absolute angel of a kitten! 

Itty Bitty Kitty Committee, a rescue group in Charleston, West Virginia, got an 8-month-old kitten brought in who was born without a left eye or nostril. The kitten also had a bobtail and asymmetrical brain. 

Board member of Itty Bitty Kitty Committee, Kathy Lucas, told Love Meow, "We immediately fell in love with that sweet face. It was determined that her left eye did not develop and she has no nasal passage or cavity on the left. She sees and breathes on her right."

"As one vet stated, 'she is who she is' and she is a sweet, trusting, petite girl with a lot of personality,"

They named the adorable little lady, Zara. And this is Zara's story (soon to be named Idgie) of how she nudged her way into the heart of a man reluctant to adopt another cat.

Cats Who Forced Their Way Into A Forever Home

Sometimes, it's not you who adopts the cat, it's the cat who adopts you. 

Here are a handful of stories in which cats decided to take matters into their own paws and get that forever home by force. And most of the time, it totally works. I mean, who can resist a cat that has decided you are their human? That's pretty freakin' special if you ask us. 

Cheers to all those who were adopted by stray animals!

Actor Dennis Quaid Adopts Cat Named Dennis Quaid

Honestly, could there be a more perfect adoption story out there? 

Lynchburg Humane Society had a black cat in need of a forever home. This cat was named Dennis Quaid. Well, the news of Dennis Quaid reached none other than the actor Dennis Quaid himself. "It was really off the wall, but I just couldn't resist. I had to," Dennis Quaid told WSLS 10 News, "I'm out to save all the Dennis Quaids of the world."

Danielle Ulmer, Adoption Center Manager at Lynchburg Humane Society couldn't believe when she heard the news, "I was like there is no way this is real, like, someone is pranking us."

Jimmy Jellinek, co-host of The Pet Show, convinced Danielle Ulmer that this was real and soon enough, a Zoom call was made where Dennis Quaid got to meet Dennis Quaid. And vice versa. 

"Maybe they should start naming animals in shelters after different celebrities and see who bites," Quaid joked. However, it's not a bad idea! And it looks like from the adoptable faces below, they're already taking Quaid up on his advice!

Happy Friday, everyone! We love Fridays for many reasons:

1. It's the start of the weekend

2. Our original user's lolcats are featured

3. The newly adopted faces of the week, which makes our hearts melt. 

We adore seeing animals find a forever loving home. And we thank all those who adopted, in the past, present, or will do so in the future. We also want to send a special shout out to those who adopt animals who have been in the shelter for far too long, those who adopted animals who are missing limbs, or characteristics that one would consider makes them difficult to adopt. And of course, thank you to those who adopt senior animals and give them a second (and hopefully final) loving home.
