This is Edgar the cat!
When Edgar first arrived at the shelter he surprised everyone, this 9-year-old cat was very tall and weighed 21lbs.
This huge ginger and white kitty was abandoned at the Humane Society of Carroll County in Maryland after his family were no longer able to keep him as he and the younger members wouldn’t get along.
“We were all a bit taken back with his size. He weighed in at 21lbs,” explained Charles Brown, who is Executive Director of the Humane Society of Carroll County.
“As soon an animal comes into our shelter we develop an adoption plan for it. And in Edgar’s case, we launched a social media campaign.”
A mere three hours after the campaign was started, Edgar had already found a home. Jenna Marie saw his photo circling on Facebook and was instantly smitten, she had never seen a cat like him before. She suggested to her boyfriend that they should most definitely get a feline companion for their resident cat and he quickly agreed. And so, they headed to the Humane Society to see if they would be lucky enough to take him home.
When Edgar first met the eager couple, they received the warmest and friendliest welcome from this gentle giant.
“He has the coolest personality. He’s affectionate and very laid back,” stated Jenna. It was decided that he was a perfect match. Once at home, he got along great with their cat and dog. “He’s settled right in as if he’s been here for a long time already. We absolutely love him!”
