At 20 years old, Lady the super senior cat was brought to the shelter, scared, confused and lost. She was in desperate need of a loving home for her golden years.
BARCS Animal Shelter
Lady was surrendered to BARCS Animal Shelter (in Baltimore, Maryland) at the age of 20 due to litter box issues.
Her former family believed that it was a behavior issue. After a thorough exam by the medical staff at BARCS, they discovered that Lady is nearly completely blind and is in the beginning stages of renal failure. “Her aging, wobbly back legs sometimes make it difficult for her to get to her litter box in time,” BARCS said.
“After a lifetime of being a loyal and loving pet, she belongs in a home and with a family to prove to her that love is not conditional and to show her that even though she is sick, she is deserving of someone who will love her until her very last day.”
Five days ago, Rebekah Carlyle, a veterinary technician, was at lunch when she came across a Facebook post about Lady. It just seemed so familiar.
