After Being Dumped At A Shelter Twice, Senior Cat With The Cutest Purr Gets A ‘Forever’ Home

| Published on March 12, 2024

Heartbreakingly, not every cat begins life in a warm, caring home. Some struggle for survival on the streets, others are left at shelters, and there are those like Tribble who find themselves surrendered back to the shelter after being adopted. Frequently, these circumstances are through no fault of the cat itself. Tribble’s journey to the shelter initially began following the death of his first owner. His subsequent adoption placed him in a household with young children who were not gentle with him.


One day Tribble had all of the harassment he could take and when he defended himself, the mother of the children dropped him off at the shelter again. Poor Tribble was all alone with no one to give him the loving home he so desperately wanted–where he could share his sweet chirpy meow with his human.

Then at 7 years old, a miracle happened for this sweet cat with a meow that sounds like a chirping bird. Someone decided that it was him out of all the other cats at the shelter that needed a loving home where he’d never have to worry again about being cast aside or mistreated. Despite having had a rough life, Tribble was the sweetest cat at the shelter, a favorite among all faculty, and even worked as the ‘test cat’ to make new animals at the shelter feel at ease. This cat had a heart of gold, and wouldn’t let his misfortunes in life get in the way of spreading his joy.


This just goes to show you that a cat just wants to be loved, and that older cats deserve a fair chance just like kittens and younger cats at the shelter. We are so grateful to Tribble’s new owners for granting him the opportunity to live out the rest of his days in pure bliss. Share this heartwarming story with your friends:)
