A Beautiful Life For Brando

When I rescued Brando a few months ago from the high kill shelter, I figured he'd be a hard sell.  Brando was 30+ pounds and could walk as well as any 500 pound man could.  He was mid-life, black and white and I figured he had all kinds of health issues.

I was wrong.

We placed Brando into a loving foster home where he was given a strict diet and he promptly lost several pounds.  His mobility became increasingly better and he started walking up and down the stairs.  He was in good health too!  His foster Mom told us that somebody really loved Brando.  He was loving, affectionate and longed to be a lap cat despite his size.

Much to my surprise, Brando became a superstar! We must've had 5 or 6 adoption calls on our big boy! But only ONE took him home..

Brando had a Forever Home! His new family named him "LOGAN" and sent us the following email updated on his first day of his new home (edited and copied with permission from sender):

"As was expected he did hide under a bed for the first few hours but before we new it, just after dinner he was out and about – purring and soaking in all of the love and attention we could give him. We gave him a good brushing and he just loved it, rolling around and purring happily...Logan is all that we expected him to be and so much more! What a love-bug! We are so happy to have him in our lives as part of our family and we promise to love and care for him for the rest of his life! Thank you so much for letting us adopt him, we simply could not be happier to have him!d"....." can’t believe anyone would have ever let him go, let alone abandon him. He is such a WONDERFUL, AFFECTIONATE and LOVING little being ... such a shame. I do however take comfort in and believe that everything happens for a reason ... Logan is our baby now and nothing bad will ever happen to him again!

Have a beautiful life, Brando...errr...Logan!
