Cat Wouldn’t Let Go Of New Best Friend At Shelter, So Someone Adopted Them Together

Meet Louie and Luna, rescue kitties who found each other at the shelter and became inseparable friends. They are totally and utterly in love!

The two kitties met at STAR Rescue in Gainesville, FL and clung to each other and wouldn’t let go.

“Luna is a brown and orange Maine Coon and Louie is an orange tabby,” James (@JamesC0nquer), the human dad said.

“When we adopted them, they were extremely close off the bat. They liked each other more than they liked us.”

Before James rescued these two best friends, he and his girlfriend went to the shelter to look for a dog.

“We went in looking for a dog but we live in an apartment and both work full time jobs that keep us away from home a lot and dogs require a lot more attention,” James told Love Meow.

“So we decided that getting a cat would be the better route, because I’ve had cats my whole life and I knew what it took to house one and everything.”

“My girlfriend saw Luna and fell in love. We went back two weeks later and she was still there.”

The couple knew they couldn’t leave the shelter without the little girl that day, but Luna didn’t want to go without her best friend.

The couple decided to “foster” Louie so Luna could have a companion when she was adopted.

Once the kittens arrived in their new home, it was apparent that these two buddies could not be separated.

“We couldn’t let go of Louie after seeing how ‘at home’ they both were together.” Less than a week later, Louie became a permanent part of the family, and the two will never be apart.

“They love to take care of each other and nap together. They do everything together,” James told Love Meow.

“Rescue cats are more appreciative of their adoptive owners, especially the ones that have been in shelters for extended amounts of time.”

“They’ve spent the past few days just laying around our Christmas tree,” and giving each other kisses.
