Do you remember Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street? They were best friends. This Bert and this Ernie are best friends as well, and they have been for 15 years. Both cats have lived together for their entire lives, and now at the ripe old age of 15, these sweet fellows were brought to the Kentucky Humane Society. Bert and Ernie were brought here because their owner’s health had declined to the point where she could no longer care for them. After spending some time at KHS they were finally adopted together, but were returned again because their new owner could not care for them due to health as well. Now these seniors are looking for a new home to spend the remainder of their life, together.
August 8, 2016: Every day at the Kentucky Humane Society, we celebrate the amazing people in our community who choose to adopt, to spay or neuter their pets, and who advocate for those who can’t speak for themselves.
But sometimes we see the ugly side of humanity. Animals who are abused, abandoned or neglected.
At the Kentucky Humane Society, wet cat food is an absolute necessity. We use this vital resource to help wean our young kittens from their mother’s milk onto solid food, help our “picky” cats get the nutrients they need and to help our sick and elderly cats take their medication.
Mark Early was driving home after a late evening working at Bluegrass Motor Sports on June 1 when he spotted a motionless lump in the middle of the street. From the light of his vehicle’s headlights, he recognized the furry body: it was a mother cat who had just taken up residence in his garage.
