ADOPTED & ADORED: A happy home for two purring pals

November 27, 2016

Adopters are loving people who offer a home and second chance to an animal in need. In fact, some adopters have so much love to share that they leave us with not one, but two, shelter pets!

Reannon and her partner recently visited our North Melbourne shelter to adopt a pair of cats. It was there that they met Hamish. They knew Hamish was meant for them, but their family still wasn’t complete.

“One of the volunteers took us to Zoe and the two fell in love! I’ve had cats all my life and I’ve never met two cats that love each other so much.”

Reannon and her partner had their hearts set on adopting from a shelter. Through welcoming two shelter cats into their home, they’ve been rewarded with double the love and purrs!

“My partner and I have always wanted to adopt. For us, adopting Hamish and Zoe was just the right thing to do, especially when there are so many animals looking for their forever home,” said Reannon.

Hamish and Zoe adjusted to our home in an instant. In fact, they own the house, they just don’t pay the bills.

“Zoe loves cuddles. It doesn’t matter where Zoe is, if she hears us sit on the couch, she jumps onto the couch and snuggles up to you.

We have never met a cat that is as affectionate as Hamish or Zoe. If someone is looking to add a furry friend to the family, adoption is the way to go.”
