The 15-year-old cat was already a senior when she arrived at the shelter, and over the years, seemed to accept her fate as a forever resident. She got along well with the other cats, but was always quick to snag a free bed in the cat room so she could relax and observe in peace. The shelter staffers were worried Muffy would never find a family — until one day, when someone finally noticed her.
Scarlett Wable was visiting the shelter with her children, who were delivering donations they had collected, when the staff offered them a tour. When they entered the cat room, Wable spotted Muffy, curled up in one of the coveted cat beds, and immediately inquired about her.
