We all know that sometimes in life, the cat is the one who chooses his forever home. And in the case of one sweet tabby named Mr. Pickles, he is no different.

When Mr. Pickles first started making appearances at the Bayview Retirement Community in Seattle, WA, some kindhearted folks figured they’d give him a little bit to eat, not minding this friendly cat’s company. So, as the days went by, his appearances started to become more frequent. It seemed that Mr. Pickles brightened the day of the residents, and he was happy to get the attention of people who were so eager to greet him–even showing himself inside by walking right through the main entrance!

Once very thin and in poor health, this friendly feline garnered the attention of all that he met, becoming one of the favorite “residents” in the community, until one fateful day everything changed. Mr. Pickles officially got to become a real resident when his owner surrendered him there! This is a touching story of one special cat who found his happy ending that he rightfully deserved. Take a look:
