At the age of 13, Jamie found himself living in an animal shelter because his former owner moved into a nursing home and, sadly, was forced to give him up.

As difficult as the separation must be for both, this adorable cat’s former owner can feel better knowing that Jamie is now in very good hands — literally. The sweet, affectionate feline now gets plenty of love, and sleeps with his new owner holding his paw.

Often overlooked at shelters, senior cats (and dogs) often make the best pets. Mellow, affectionate and trained, a senior pet is a joy to have around the house. As you can see, Jamie certainly is!
