Once sentenced to a life of catching rats in terrible conditions, Sylvester the cat is thriving in his forever home.
Sylvester’s mom, Justine Walton, recently sent us an update on the fluffy grey cat who used to live cold and alone in a bad neighborhood. In the two years since Sylvester was adopted from Country Cat Sanctuary, the sweet boy has settled nicely into his found happiness.
Justine reports, “He has become such a loved member of our family.”
And that family grew by one about a year ago when Sylvester gained a kitty brother. Justine and Sylvester adopted Winston from the Country Cat Sanctuary, the very same rescue where Justine and Sylvester first met. She said of the brothers, “Sylvester and Winston are buddies who like to play and groom each other.”
Reading about Sylvester’s beginnings, Justine said, “It breaks my heart to see where Sylvester was and to know how sad of a life he used to live, but he is truly living the life of a spoiled, very loved cat.”
Though Sylvester used to spend his days and nights alone, he became “the sweetest boy who loves to cuddle, play with his toys, and nap on his cat tree, the couch, his cat basket, or anywhere he has claimed as his own.”
“I wanted to share that this ‘desperately lonely cat’ will never be lonely again.”
And we thank you for sharing Sylvester’s happy ending, Justine!
