An 11-year-old cat now has a place of her own after nearly a year trying to win people over.
Mimi the cat was brought into (an all-volunteer rescue in NC) after her owner sadly passed away. She was about 11 years old, and came with another cat named Rocco who was a few years her junior.
At first, Mimi was understandably confused and unsure about the new environment. Within a day of arriving, she came out from hiding and started eating and using her litter box.
Having familiar items (cat beds, a cat tower, and blankets) from her former home really helped ease Mimi into her new space.
