Employees of the Lorca Animal Hospital were having the hardest time finding a forever home for Lou the cat. The employees couldn’t understand how such a sweet, docile, and affectionate cat was being passed over by so many potential owners.
Week after week the amazing cat was being ignored, even though they were one of the sweetest animals at the shelter — then it all made sense.
A 14-year-old girl named Laura Gonzalez entered the shelter in Spain and immediately fell in love with Lou. The little girl suffers from a rare neurological and physical disorder and her mother, Isa, was on the hunt for a therapeutic companion animal for her daughter.
Isa adopted Lou and brought him home to Laura where the two immediately hit it off. Isa was so impressed with the connection the pair made that she filmed them together.
“We didn’t understand why Lou couldn’t find a family, being such a docile and affectionate cat. Now we understand everything,” Lorca Animal Hospital wrote in a post online. “He was waiting for little Laura, that is the name of this wonderful angel, and her mom Isa. Thank you, Isa, for opening your heart a little more and giving this opportunity to Lou.”
This is an incredibly heartwarming story and once you watch the video below you will understand just how deep the connection between Laura and Lou the cat really is.
LOU ADOPTADO!!!!!!!!!!No entendíamos como Lou no encontraba una familia al ser un gato tan dócil y cariñoso .Ahora lo entendemos todo, estaba esperando a Laurita que así se llama este ángel tan maravilloso,y a su mamá Isa.Gracias Isa por abrir tu corazón un poquito más y darle esta oportunidad a Lou.Estas imágenes fueron grabadas a las pocas horas de estar lou en su hogar y como dicen que una imagen vale más que mil palabras os pido a todos aquell@s que nos seguís que compartáis estas hermosas imágenes y podamos romper mitos falsos.Como el que un animal adulto no se adapta o que no pueden ser cariñosos o que los niños y los animales no pueden vivir juntos entre todos estamos seguros que poco a poco conseguiremos y cambiando algunas mentes.Gracias Isa y mil gracias
