Adopted! Milo’s Happy Ending

Milo is ready to go home!

Milo has found a wonderful forever home! His rescuer/foster home had Milo in her booth at the Pittsburgh Pet Expo, and there’s nothing like getting a really wonderful cat in front of a bunch of animal lovers. He met his match and went to his forever home last week. Yay Milo, happily ever after! Milo’s original story is below.

. . . . . . .

Milo was born outside in Mt. Washington, was trapped when he was about three months old.  He was fixed, rabies vaccinated, ear tipped, combo tested then returned to where he was from.  When he left the trap, he meowed the whole time after he was released, so the person returning him recognized that he was friendly and went back for three evenings to re-trap him.  She successfully trapped him, and he had the works.

Milo had four other siblings, three of whom were adopted through a local animal shelter. Milo was surrendered to the animal shelter at the same time as his siblings, but he did not like that environment, so he was returned to his foster home.

Can’t adopt? Foster! Can’t foster? Donate or volunteer.

There are so many ways you can help cats who need homes and care. You may not have room to adopt another cat, but can foster a cat or kitten for a few weeks. If not that, you can volunteer at a shelter or with a rescue, or donate. You do this because you love your cat, and by doing so you help all cats. No matter which of these actions you take, you help to save a life, and make life better for all cats.

  • Adopt one of the cats I’ve posted here, or from any shelter or rescue near you, or from Petfinder, to open up a space for another cat to be rescued and fostered.
  • Offer to foster cats or kittens for a shelter or rescue near you.
  • Volunteer at a shelter or rescue.
  • Find a group of volunteers who work with homeless cats and help them with their efforts.
  • Donate to a shelter or rescue near you.

If you can foster kittens or adults cats to help prepare them for a forever home, please run to your nearest shelter and find a cat who needs you! Anyone can help with this effort at any level, even if all you do is donate to a shelter or rescue so they can help to pay for the food or medications needed for their foster, or the spay/neuter/veterinary care during a clinic.
