My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

NAME: Squeaks
BREED: DSH
BIRTHDAY: July 2020
ADOPTION FEE: $75

 

Squeaks got his name by literally squeaking until he was rescued. Somehow the very tiny young guy found himself by the dumpster of a hotel in Gettysburg, along a busy roadway. He was all alone in the dark and the rain, but luckily started squeaking just as the director of our rescue was walking to her car after work. He squeaked by the dumpster and then ran to the utility shed and squeaked in there, never showing himself for a second. Finally he held still and squeaked long enough to get snatched up and driven home, where two foster kittens named Rhett and Link were waiting to welcome him into our rescue.
 
These three boys were adopted together, and grew up together in what we believed was their forever home. Sadly, when their human brother came along they found themselves in need of a new place to live: the new baby is allergic to cats. Now this trio is back in GOT, in a small room where they will have to wait for another family to take them in. This time they are not small kittens but big grown-up boys, and Squeaks especially is a chunker. We know they are less likely to get adopted now, but we are hoping that someone will come along who just wants a handsome young cat to cuddle, love, and play with. Our dream home would take all three boys together, but since Rhett and Squeaks are particularly bonded our goal is to keep them together if nothing else.
 
From the boys' former family:

Squeaks is our beautiful brown striped boy. Have you ever met a cat that loves belly rubs? No? Good! Then Squeaks is your man, he will flop right in front of you and meow for belly rubs. He is a cuddle bug who loves the tops of chairs and couches to lounge in the sun. He also likes treats and being your right hand man in the kitchen! His favorite toys are anything with catnip and a little plush squirrel. He is a little chunky but don't let that fool you, he will jump in the air to get a dangling toy! He is microchipped, neutered, and fully vaccinated.

More about this rescue

Good Old Tails Senior Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of senior dogs and cats in the Southern Pennsylvania/Northern Maryland areas.
We believe that senior animals deserve loving, caring homes where they will be taken care of the rest of their days.

Good Old Tails Senior Animal Rescue was founded in 2015 by a small group of animal lovers. Years of rescue showed us that the senior demographic in shelters is often the most overlooked and highly euthanized. These animals are discarded because of failing health, new pets in the family, a lack of time for attention and care, and countless other reasons which Good Old Tails finds deplorable. Pets are a commitment for life, not until they are an inconvenience. We are dedicated to saving as many senior dogs and cats as we can, and providing them with love and care so that they can live out the rest of their days with dignity and happiness. Some of these animals may never leave our rescue, and their foster families will be the ones to say the last good-bye. Others will go on to find families of their own. Whatever the outcome, we have made the promise to them that they will never again be alone.
