Regardless of what age your are, losing your pet can be a traumatic experience. When 102-year-old Iona recently lost her cat, her son decided to bring her to the Montgomery County Animal Shelter in Conroe, Texas.
According to the Huffington Post, Iona had her cat for over 10 years and wanted to find a new companion. When she found a 2-year-old cat named Edward and picked him up, he instantly snuggled up next to her. Barbara Bates, the adoption coordinator of Montgomery County Animal Shelter, said “It just filled my heart. The kitty just snuggled right up to her. Matched her outfit she had on.”
She then asked Iona if she could take her picture and Iona replied “Honey, I sure hope I don’t break your camera.” She’s funny and the picture is so sweet.
