When our house became too quiet after we lost Winston, it was time to once again become pet parents. As always, we chose to adopt. Enter Sylvester and Petey. This time we decided to give two Senior Cats from The House of Mews a chance at their forever home. Suddenly, much to their delight, there were catnip toys, sunshine, scratching posts, and soft blankets, something these two did not have. And the best thing — a warm bed to curl up with their pet parents which they both did every night.
Unfortunately, we lost Petey to kidney failure after only a few months. We really believe that we were meant to give him a wonderful and comforting end of days and we will never regret having him with us. We just lost Sylvester to old age, after several years of running from room to room, jumping on everything he could reach, vanquishing his toy mouse and most importantly, following the sun as it moved through the house. There was also the best time to be had playing with his best bud, our golden retriever Jessie.
When it’s time, we will once again adopt these special cats that are overlooked because of their age. We know how much love they have to give and how much joy they bring to our house (and Jessie!).
