We are very pleased to announce that after 9 months with Black Cat Rescue, Cuddles has gone to her forever home!
Cuddles came to BCR when her owner moved in with a significant other with 2 kittens. Cuddles, who has been the pampered only cat for the previous 13 years, had some trouble accepting the new status quo. After trying to make things work for a while, Cuddles’ former owner decided the best thing for Cuddles would be a new home where she could be the center of attention once again.
And so in May 2014, Cuddles came to BCR as a big floofy diva who needed to be an only cat. At first she was scared and shy. After two moves and some rambunctious kitten roommates, she was in no mood to make friends, but as Cuddles settled into foster care she blossomed to show what a cuddly cat she truly is.
As time went on, the BCR crew grew more and more mystified. We posted about Cuddles on facebook and twitter, we shared gorgeous photos of her, she even launched a career as a cover model for Feline Wellness Magazine’s first issue in 2015! Everyone here at Black Cat Rescue was astounded– we genuinely thought Cuddles would be in a new home within a few weeks. As the weeks turned into months, we realized maybe Cuddles would be a challenge.
Cuddles is old enough to have some dignity, but not too old for fun. She has the most beautiful long black fur– and it’s super soft too! She has no behavioral issues aside from her need to be an only cat, uses the litterbox perfectly, and isn’t a picky eater. We scheduled many many adoption visits for her, but no one was willing to give this gorgeous girl another shot at a forever home.
Sometimes when things don’t work out, it’s because there’s something better on the horizon. Thank goodness that was the case for Cuddles!
Joe grew up in a family that loves animals and even fostered rescue animals while growing up. He was searching for a friendly companion and specifically stated that age didn’t matter. Joe has a large loft space with massive windows– we suggested Cuddles would love those windows and Joe agreed to meet her. He didn’t even blink when we mentioned she is 14!
After a very positive adoption visit, Joe took Cuddles home to his loft and Cuddles is settling into her new home! Congratulations to both Joe and Cuddles!
