Cats Rescued From Hoarder Find New Life

Published by PETA.

When we rescued Nudge and Olaf from miserable conditions in South Carolina hoarding facility Sacred Vision Animal Sanctuary, they were in desperate need of medical attention and love. Now, little more than a month later, they are healthy, playful, and enjoying their new homes.

Nudge’s years spent in a cage are a distant memory as she runs and plays with her big brother, Tigger, in her new home with the parent of a PETA staffer. The two cats have become inseparable, and after playtime, they can often be found curled up in bed or watching TV together. Nudge’s guardians say she is the perfect addition to the family.

PETA staffers were so charmed by Olaf that we couldn’t bear to part with him. He’s now an official office cat and spends his days bouncing from desk to desk and lap to lap. Despite a missing eye, a broken tail, and arthritic knees, he manages to keep everyone in line. He loves to play and cuddle with his fellow office cats, like Brandi, whom he’s hanging out with in this picture:

If you are ready to open your home and heart to a new cat, visit the wonderful animals at your local shelter.
