The Healing Power of Love

Jun 03, 2024

Cats Levi and Lyndon had poor appetites and were losing weight at the shelter. The cure turned out to be love.

Cats Levi and Lyndon were surrendered by their owner when she could no longer care for them at 3 and 2 years old, respectively. To ease their anxiety, we placed Levi and Lyndon together and they both began gaining confidence and eating more than before little by little unfortunately, they were still losing weight.  

To get them back on track, we found a foster home where they could start recouping together. After a couple weeks of fattening up, this adorable duo was finally ready for a home which is when they met David Elliot.  

In their initial meeting, Levi and Lyndon sparked David's attention, showing cautious curiosity and affection. It didn't take long before David was smitten and decided to adopt.  

Now safe in their new home, Levi and Lyndon are still adjusting, but they're also making great progress.  

I'm still working through the bumps. Lyndon lets me pet him he has really soft fur. And Levi, just yesterday, let me pet him without having to bribe him with food, says David.  

While Levi, Lyndon, and David are still finding their groove together, it's important to remember that becoming a family takes time. Little bumps in the road are part of the journey, and we are so grateful David decided to give these cats a second chance.  

It's still a work in process, but they're sleeping under my bed, and I'm making a little bit of progress every day, says David. That's the power of love.
