The Rescue Cats who Fell in Love at a Shelter — 5 Comments

  1. I’ve had two couples like this. I reserved final judgement that they were in love until there was no doubt at all (pretty quickly actually) and as time went on it only got stronger. I wasn’t sure if cats could establish such relationships or how often it happens… and it’s not routine. Out of 18 cats only four (two pair) found each other. I’ve thought certain others might pair up but no, they don’t always meet their love mate. So it is special. I do have one male who has a crush on a female, but she wants nothing to do with him, then a different female that has the hots for him, but he doesn’t like her. These are all sterilized by the way, so actual mating has nothing to do with it. They’re particular with likes and dislikes, much like people.

    • Very nice Albert. I thought quite hard about using the word “love”. It is used very flexibly by people and looking at these cats their relationship looks as strong as any amongst humans in love that I have seen. 😉

  2. Animals do form deep emotional connections to other animals. It has been documented. What a happy ending for these two feline soulmates.
