The day all nonhuman caretakers dread came for this couple when their sweet kitty died after a long cancer battle. After grieving, the couple decided to open their hearts back up and open their home to a cat that was in need. That’s when they found Trixie. After 20 hours of searching, they found Trixie, who had arrived at the shelter five whole years ago when she was a 6-month-old pregnant stray. Trixie was now the longest resident at the shelter.

The shelter told them that Trixie had ever only had one application, and they were beginning to lose hope for her finding her forever home. The couple fell in love with her and decided to bring her home. Although she hid in a box for the first 10 hours at her new house, she slowly started to come out of her shell. After a month, her personality was showing through!


5 years in the shelter is far too long!

Another six-month update shows playful Trixie being an adventurous kitty. After being the shelter’s longest resident because she was so shy, she was finally given the chance to show her adorable and playful side.
