When Shawna Solberg went on a tour of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah, with her two daughters, she was sure she wasn’t going to adopt any animals. In fact, she was adamant.
“I had already told my daughters to not ask for any animals to adopt,” Solberg told The Dodo. “We already had two cats and a dog at home. We toured the property, and while I felt sorry for the other animals, I was attempting to remain steadfast in my decision to not adopt.”
When they visited the cat building, Solberg spotted Oscar, a 12-year-old cat with a distinctive look — he was missing the outer parts of his ears and half of his tail.
