19-Year-Old Abandoned Cat Gets A New Home

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Tangee, a 19-year-old black and tan tabby cat, will have a home for the holidays.

She was turned over to the Animal Rescue League after a man gave her to his ride share driver while getting out of the car at Logan Airport. There was a note left that said he was moving to Florida, and couldn't take the cat with him.

The ARL's Mike DeFina told WBZ NewsRadio's Kim Tunnicliffe everyone there is thrilled she found a home.

"Really, 19 years old in cat years roughly equates to 96 in human years," he said. "It was really important to us to find her a home sooner rather than later."

DeFina said after Tangee's story was publicized, they were flooded with calls from all over the country.

"We were getting calls from Nevada, Michigan," he said. "People all over just suddenly had that want to really give her a loving home for the rest of her life."

Now, after just a week at the ARL, she's now found her forever home.

"I guess I've always just had a thing for older animals or special needs animals," said Tangee's new owner. "They might be a little bit older, they might require extra care, but they still deserve your love, attention and everything."
