The Shelter Finds a Perfect Solution for the Elderly Cat Who Loves to Be Held.

Dougie is a 15-year-old ginger cat who LOVES to be held. According to a post on the Facebook page of the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland:

The shelter had to get creative so that Dougie could be held while the staff was still busy with work around the shelter.

“We brainstormed and decided that a baby carrier would allow Robert [Weimer] to hold Dougie and still effectively do his job 🙂 And we think it’s pretty much the cutest thing we’ve ever seen.”

Dougie, who was battling an inflammatory bowel disease, was just put up for adoption this week. Luckily, this Facebook post went viral and he found a fantastic new home within a day!

Since Dougie already has an amazing new home, we’d like to remind you that your local animal shelter is still full of pets that need loving homes! If you’re interested in adopting a pet from the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland, you can check out their website here.
