Shelter Creates Purr-fect Solution For Cat Who Loves to be Held
Dougie the cat loves being held. The 15-year-old ginger feline, who was recently living at the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland in Maine, loves being held so much that when he's not in someone's arms, his "meow can be heard from galaxies far away," the animal shelter wrote on Facebook. Now that is pretty cute!
While the shelter staff was happy to oblige Dougie, you can almost imagine that having a cat in your arms at all times can be somewhat of a hindrance…And what is worse than a crying meowing cat? Nothing. Nothing. So when feline team member Robert Weimer, for instance, had work to get done, he didn't want to disappoint Dougie. Luckily, the organization came up with the purr-fect solution.
"We thought creatively and decided a baby bjorn allowed Robert to both hold Dougie and do his job effectively," the shelter explained in a Facebook post. A photo features the cat calmly perched in the carrier on Weimer's chest.
Dougie, who has been receiving medical treatment for inflammatory bowel disease, was put up for adoption this week. He actually found a new home on Saturday, thanks to photos of Weirner carrying him went viral! "He loves affection and to be near his people all the time," Jeana Roth, director of community engagement at the shelter, told HuffPost. "He's also very chatty and will even give kisses when you ask him for them. He gets along well with other pets and even grooms them."
A very happy ending for the clingy fella, but hey, don't we all wish that cats where like this?
