Last weekend, that "saddest" cat found what he had been waiting so long for: a family who would embrace him for who he is.
"Nutmeg was adopted by a young couple who fell in love with him the moment they saw his face!" Doerner said. "The adoption counselor who facilitated Nutmeg's meet-and-greet with his new family said that they were so excited about Nutmeg, and just couldn't wait to take him home."
A few days later, Nutmeg's family shared a photo of their new pet at home — and the smile on his face says more than words ever could.
