A senior cat named Hoonie has recently been surrendered at a shelter in Maryland after his owner died. The owner’s daughter initially took Hoonie in, but unfortunately, both she and her own son are allergic to cats, and they couldn’t keep him. Now, all the 16-year-old cat has is his favorite stuffed animal.

Hoonie is still adjusting to his new life at Alley Cat Rescue in Maryland, and the people at the rescue center are hoping to find him a new owner. His stuffed cat, which probably still smells like home, is his greatest comfort.

“We’ve never seen a cat that is so attached to a stuffed animal,” Brianna Grant, communications associate at Alley Cat Rescue, said during an interview with the Dodo. “It really seems to be his support system.”Go To Next Page To See More …
