Gus, a 19-year old cat, recently wound up in a North Carolina animal shelter after his owner was no longer able to care for him. Gus’s owner was reportedly heart broken at having to give him up, but fortunately Gus found a new home right away.

Penny, a 101-year old woman, decided to adopt Gus. Now the two of them can share their lives together as senior citizens. Hopefully Penny and Gus will have many years together comforting each other in their remaining time.
