The compassion this senior sweetie was shown is paying off with some “meows of wisdom.” This 21-year-old kitty surrendered and requested to be euthanized because of her old age but not before the shelter put out a rescue plea for this lovely girl. Karyn Poplin of Kitty Adventure Rescue League and Sanctuary was contacted and responded with open arms.
According to Poplin, “While we are closed for intake for the rest of the year, some pleas for help just can’t be ignored.”
The moment Priscilla arrived at the sanctuary, she nestled into her soft bed and made herself right at home.
That meow though! Clearly, Priscilla has a lot to say including lots of thank yous to Karyn and her husband.
We are so glad Priscilla is now safe, happy, and can live out her remaining days in a loving environment.
Priscilla is reported to be in good shape for her age and enjoys spending time with other cats. Though no one knows what the pretty Persian is really saying, we’d like to think she is reminding everyone that pets are a lifelong commitment. Abandoning or surrendering a pet at any age is wrong but for senior pets, it is especially stressful. Before adopting a pet, think of all the possibilities from health problems, moving, and financial issues- then decide if you have the resources to work through them without giving up your pet.
Kitty Adventure Rescue League and Sanctuary is a feline rescue and retirement organization located in the Dallas-Fort Worth, TX area. The sanctuary provides life-long care to disabled, special needs, and elderly cats that would otherwise be euthanized. These “unadoptable” cats are given a shelter, vet care, and a loving place to call home. Karyn Poplin and her husband also host adoption events for the younger, healthier felines that need a forever home. This incredible duo works hard for these furry felines day in and day out. As a non-profit, they depend mainly on donations and volunteers to keep operations going strong.
