15 year shelter cat finally finds humans he`s been waiting for. Hope he is loving his new life!
This scraggly 15 year old shelter cat was living on the streets his entire life. But then the rescuers found him and brought in to the Voorhees Animal Orphanage. Staff-members and volunteers were simply amazed by this senior’s kind soul and also lovely personality. It did not take that long at all for somebody to fall in love and take him to his new loving forever home.
“This super affectionate fellow should not be spending his golden years in the shelter,” the shelter wrote on their page. That is exactly when Dr Ed Sheehan and his beloved wife Clare Sheehan of Sheehan Veterinary Centre stumbled upon that post on Facebook. “When we saw his picture and story on Facebook we felt that he really needed lots of vet care just on his age and also appearance,” Clare explains.
Shortly after that they contacted the shelter and asked if they could adopt him right away. This shelter cat was on his way to his new forever home. Barnaby was brought into Sheehan’s office and of course all of his staff and also volunteers instantly fell in love with him.
“When mopping the floors he followed behind to make sure I did not miss a spot. Also at the end of the night he sits on my lap to make sure I do the books correctly,” says Rachel, a vet tech working there.
“We have him on antibiotics and he seems to be improving quite a bit! He has put on some weight (almost a whole pound). His coat is even starting to look much better,” Rachel went on to say. “Barnaby also just loves his special senior food, and enjoys being brushed regularly too. He also takes his antibiotics like a champ and does not complain at all”.
“Barnaby is more than just a ‘house cat’ to us. He is well loved and also very cared for by Dr. Sheehan, myself and also our entire staff that he loves,” Clare states. When Barnaby has poor appetite sometimes, his nurses need to spoon feed him cat food gravy and some extra vitamins in a cat food formula. “Keeping him healthy and very happy is our main goal. We want to make the rest of his life a happy one. Who knows the trials and the tribulations he went through in his life. But now his Veterinarian Dad and I and also the rest of his Vet Tech family will love and care for him,” Clare concludes.
