It can be quite a challenge to select a pet at the animal shelter. With numerous adorable animals eagerly waiting for their forever home, it can be tough to choose just one. Elliot and Nathaniel Green experienced this first-hand during their recent visit to the shelter in search of a feline companion. However, little did they know that their trip would take an unexpected turn.
Elliot and Nathan visited the Lynchburg Humane Society in Virginia with the intention of adopting a Siamese cat. Unfortunately, they found out that the only Siamese cat available was already on hold. Although they left feeling disappointed, their luck changed when another feline showed interest in them.
Merlin, a lovely cat with a visual impairment, had been waiting for someone to adopt him for quite some time. Despite his blindness, he was as stunning as any of the other felines at the shelter. When a couple arrived, the 2-year-old cat rushed over to them and immediately bonded with Elliot. Despite his vision loss, Merlin snuggled up to Elliot, displaying that he knows how to make friends.
According to the shelter staff, Merlin was always relaxed and affectionate with his environment. When he snuggled up to Elliot, it became clear to the couple that they had found their perfect pet. They adopted Merlin and decided to create an Instagram account to show off their new furry family member.
