We all know that adopting a pet is a big responsibility, and shelters have to be careful when finding new homes for their furry friends. But what happens when someone is denied the chance to adopt for a seemingly ridiculous reason? One woman (24F) found herself in this exact situation when trying to adopt a senior cat from a local shelter. Despite her love for cats and experience in owning them, she was repeatedly rejected by the shelter. The reason? You won't believe it! 😲

A Twist in the Tale 🕵️‍♀️

As it turns out, the shelter in question may have had some shady dealings going on. Our cat-loving protagonist discovered that the woman running the shelter was a known animal hoarder with a history of legal trouble. With the help of another shelter, the cats were eventually relocated and given proper care. While this story has a somewhat happy ending, it's a stark reminder of the importance of thoroughly vetting shelters and being persistent in the quest to provide a loving home for animals in need. 🐾💖

NTA. Shelter being too picky; others may be more lenient 😾

NTA. Find another rescue. Let's say that you did put someone's name down as a guardian in the event of your untimely demise, who's to guarantee that that person will still be able to take care of the cat? 😾
