People who want to adopt a pet, they typically want a puppy or a kitten. Who can resist the tiny little balls of fluff – they are cute and so cuddly! It is important to realize that older cats and dogs need homes too. An older pet can still be cute and cuddly! In Gloucestershire, UK, Complicated Cats Sanctuary is home to Dixie (shown here in black) and Veeb (the ginger fellow).
Veeb is 19-years old and has been at the sanctuary since November 2008. Dixie, 15, has lived there since December 2001. The two of them ‘found’ each other after suffering losses.
Veeb’s mother, Dizzie, passed in 2012 and Dixie’s best friend, Percy, died in 2010. Veeb and Dixie found comfort in each other’s presence and have been snuggle buddies ever since!
They groom each other and give head bunts (or head butts, which is a way of bonding or to show comfort).
