Mojo 11 and Max 16 were dropped off at Friends of Anne Arundel County Animal Control, in Maryland.
They have been friends together but were separated in different cages when they arrived in the shelter.
“About a month ago, this lady adopted Mojo, an 11-year-old cat who came to the shelter with another cat, Max, who is 16,” the shelter wrote on Facebook.
“Mojo has been a wonderful pet, she said, but she couldn’t get Max out of her mind. ‘The idea of him living out his life in a cage just broke my heart,’ she said.”
