Timi proves that you are never too old for love and affection

Published Apr 16, 2017 at 9:00am

Hello Everyone:

My name is Timi, and I am a 10-year-old male feline in need of a quiet home. My owner passed away, and I’ve been staying at the shelter since March. I miss my owner so much and would just love to find a place where I can be happy and safe in my own space.

I adore just looking out the window and watching the world go by.

Since I am a senior cat, I would prefer being the only pet in a household but if someone already has a cat or two, I will do my best to be friendly.

My middle name should be “Mellow” because that’s exactly what I am.

Can you please help me out Winston?

I still have many good years left in me and want to share it with someone special.

Thank you, Timi.

Dear Timi:

Thank you for writing; it was wonderful to hear from you. I appreciate it when the older folks (like you) are spotlighted so that they get a second chance. If a cat can live to 20 and you are only 10, well that’s a lot of life left in you my friend! Best of luck to you! 

Sincerely, Winston.
