The long lives of two elderly cats, 11-year-old Mojo and 16-year-old Max, were nearly terminated when they were left off with Anne Arundel County Animal Control in Maryland. The cats had to be housed in separate cages due to the shelter’s rules, with each one trying to overcome the odds stacked against them as elderly pets in need of new homes.
The shelter stated on Facebook, “About a month ago, this lady adopted Mojo, an 11-year-old cat who arrived to the shelter with another cat, Max, who is 16.”
She remarked that while Mojo had been a lovely pet, she couldn’t get Max out of her head. ‘The thought of him spending the rest of his life in a cage broke my heart,’ she said.”
She returned to the shelter the day after Christmas to adopt Max and reunite the two friends.
When they first adopted Mojo…
When they returned to adopt Mojo’s closest buddy, everything changed! Max was ecstatic to be released from the shelter.
As soon as they met they hugged each other, that was wonderful. Because both have each other and have a safe haven.
As we hugged together, brotherly love! Wonderful is wonderful to have each other in their home.
