A Kind Woman Wants To Save A 16 Year Old Cat Who Is About To Be Put Down
Lahmia Mareeal Marano received a text message from a friend who works at a veterinary clinic, and when she opened it, she saw a photo of Maxx, a 16-year-old cat, looking back at her.
Despite the fact that Maxx was in wonderful health, his owner had walked in and requested that he be put to death, according to her acquaintance. They were working so hard to prevent that from happening by finding him a new home.
“I tried my hardest to find him a home and I almost did it, but they couldn’t take him in the end,” Marano told The Dodo. “On that Thursday, I was told that if Maxx didn’t find a home, then he would be put to sleep at the owner’s request. I just couldn’t let that happen, so I got in my car the next day and drove the hour and a half to get him.”
Marano hadn’t been planning on adopting another cat, but she felt a pull towards Maxx and knew she had to help him. Sometimes the best things in life aren’t planned.
