A cat was surrendered to PETA because his owner couldn’t properly care for the animal’s chronic, painful ear issues—an infection that had turned into a gaping wound, followed by ear mites—the result of being left to roam around outside. While the cat, renamed Jennings (as in “PETA’s Jennings”—get it?), recovered, PETA searched for a new home for the newscater. Just a few weeks later, a sweet and widely shared Facebook post attracted the attention of Renee, who works out of her home in New York City and was looking for a companion for her 10-year-old dog, Madison. Now, Jennings lives safely indoors, where he enjoys looking out at the Manhattan skyline, snuggling with Madison, and batting around lots of new toys.

PETA’s motto says, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way,” and we’re proud to help animals in our community. More information about Jennings is available on PETA’s blog.
