A couple adopted an elderly cat named Chance, who became withdrawn due to the loss of its previous owner. After a year in foster care, 9-year-old Chance was welcomed into his new home with this loving couple.
But Chance was too shy to settle in, hiding away for three months. Concerned, the couple reached out to his former foster home and discovered that Chance enjoyed the company of kittens. They decided it was time for Chance to have a friend.
At the shelter, their eyes were drawn to a cat with big, round eyes. This cat, Shermn, had a rough start, found sneaking dog food behind a car before coming to the shelter.
Shermn immediately charmed the couple, constantly seeking cuddles and affection. It was clear Shermn had chosen them, and they didn’t hesitate to bring him home.
Shermn was a handful at times, getting into mischief like exploring the trash and eyeing human food.
But the couple responded with love and hugs, not punishment.
Before long, Shermn was a hug-loving furball, spending 90% of his day in their arms.
Chance, observing Shermn’s arrival, came out of his shell. He would follow Shermn around, help groom him, and even join in play.
Shermn thrived under Chance’s big brother care, sticking together in everything they did.
Shermn’s love for cuddles rubbed off on Chance, who also began to enjoy the warmth of a hug.
The couple reflected that while they thought they were giving Shermn a home, it was Shermn who mended their strained bond with Chance.
Now, the family of four shares a close, affectionate bond. Their days are filled with joy and togetherness, a true testament to the happiness pets bring into our lives.
