101-Year-Old Woman Adopts Oldest Cat in Shelter: ‘Our Hearts Are Full’

The adoption of the oldest cat in a North Carolina animal shelter has been described as a “match made in heaven” after a 101-year-old woman took him in.

Gus, 19 years old, was taken to the Humane Society of Catawba County (HSCC) in North Carolina in the middle of September, after his previous owner could no longer keep him due to unforeseen work commitments. “His owner was heartbroken,” Jane Bower, Humane Society of Catawba County’s executive director told Newsweek.
