    Some of you may remember my sweet Persian Mobile (Angel) who passed away from oral squamous cell carcinoma cancer on September 5, 2017.
    I adopted Angel on October 17, 2015 at 12 years old, she was very matted and blind. Her owners were tragically killed in a car wreck.
    While I only had 22 months with Angel, she taught me a thing or two about life. Maybe that's what led me to this guy.....
    This is also kind of an update to my To Love Again? post.

    I just filled out the online application to adopt a 19 (almost 20!) year old male Maine Coon. I was approved. :) He is a 8 hour drive away, but this doesn't bother me.

    I know he doesn't look like much at his age, but I'm honestly really happy to bring him home!

    Bless you. Bless him. Can't wait to meet him. He doesn't know it yet, but he's a very lucky Grand Old Man.

    Oh my, what a beautiful old man! It takes a special kind of person to adopt one at that age, and he is SO blessed to have someone who will love him at the end of his life when he needs it the most. I will say a special prayer for you both, may God bless you for opening your heart. You are an angel here on earth!

    This is wonderful....thank you for doing this, he looks so sweet and you are doing a GREAT thing, for sure Angel put you two together no doubt for a second in my mind!

    Sylvester and I approve and are very happy as I also am sure Simon and Sebastian sent him to me 3 years ago....

    Such a handsome old gentleman. Senior cats have so much to give, and ask so little in return. Luck for him...lucky for you. God bless.

    He looks like a sweetheart. He’s a lucky boy. I’m definitely going to adopt an older cat next time. So many end up in a shelter from owners passing away. Please keep us updated!
