    17 Pets Who Found Their Forever Homes During This Quarantine

    There's no love like a pet's love.

    As you know, many of us have been (and should be) staying home due to the coronavirus. Because of this, many people have turned to fostering and adopting pets as a way to bring some joy into their lives.

    This has even led some shelters around the country to celebrate, since many are finally adopting out every animal in their shelter for the first time ever.

    It's been quite the 24 hours. 10:30 yesterday: I found out we were approved to adopt two kittens 10:15 this morning: I found out my position with the Worcester Telegram was eliminated. I’ll have further thoughts at some point, but for now this is proof that cats can heal us all

    16. This cat who became a full-blown doctor overnight:

    I forgot to mention that I recently adopted a cat from the Longford shelter and have named him Dr Norman Swan. He goes by Norm or Doctor. He’s very cute but very annoying. He will be an inside cat because I really value my local birbs.
