Because of the shelter’s policy, the cats had to be kept in separate cages with each one hoping to defy the odds stacked against them as older pets in need of a new homes.
“About a month ago, this lady adopted Mojo, an 11-year-old cat who came to the shelter with another cat, Max, who is 16,” the shelter wrote on Facebook.
“Mojo has been a wonderful pet, she said, but she couldn’t get Max out of her mind. ‘The idea of him living out his life in a cage just broke my heart,’ she said.”
