The 14-year-old animal shelter cat found the perfect companion to spend their golden years with them – they both needed each other

The 14-year-old shelter cat found the perfect companion to spend his golden years with him. He not only brought a smile to his eternal human, but also something very special.

A 14-year-old gray cat was brought to Anne Arundel County Animal Care and Control (in Maryland) in early May. The older cat was very kind and gentle with every staff member and volunteer he encountered. He just wanted a friend to hang out with.

The shelter was able to set up a nursing home for the cute senior (LL Cool J) so he could stay in a quiet and comfortable environment while he waited for the right family to come along.

“He loves to be petted and meow as soon as he knows you are around,” said his zookeeper. “He longs for attention, headbuttons, and still has a lot of love to give.”

Although the cat is a little older, it is still young at heart. He tastes like his scratch pads and enjoys soaking up the sun on the windows. He loves people and will jump on the couch to be next to them and keep them company.

After a few months of waiting, the cute senior really longed for someone special who would bring him home and love him forever. It was around this time that a volunteer met this lovable cat and was immediately beaten. She knew exactly the perfect person for him.

The volunteer’s 89-year-old mother, who lives in an assisted living facility (Brightview Severna Park), needed a sweet, gentle companion.

“The pandemic has hit the residents of assisted living facilities and their loved ones so badly that they cannot visit, hug or even touch them,” the shelter wrote. “LL Cool J (now renamed Raven) is allowed to live with this lady thanks to her pet guidelines, which allow residents to have a well-behaved, vaccinated pet weighing no more than 25 pounds. Talk about a win- Win situation for both elderly people and older pets. “

It was love at first sight when Raven met his forever human person. He snuggled up to his new mother and immediately put a big smile on her face. They really connected as if they felt each other complete.

The two cute seniors spent the rest of the day cuddling, and Raven was the happiest he had ever been.

Raven has brought so much joy and much-needed comfort to his favorite person. He likes to hang out with her, cuddle in her arms and watch the day go by.

They needed each other and now they have each other to share their retirement with.
