Cooner 181105 and Happy Nose 181104Happy Nose and Cooner are two senior Siamese cats. They spent their entire lives together when suddenly their world changed. Their person became unexpectedly ill, and was unable to care for them. A senior herself, she had no one to help her, and so she turned to Nevada Humane Society (NHS), a no-kill humane shelter in Reno.

At first, both cats were quiet, shy, and less than confident. Staff and volunteers looked past that, giving Happy Nose and Cooner plenty of TLC. Slowly, they began to reveal their true colors—affectionate and charming personalities.

One volunteer in particular took Happy Nose and Cooner under her wing. With the help of NHS staff, she created a special adoption poster and shared that around the community. It wasn’t long before a lovely woman decided she couldn’t resist them. She came to NHS, met Happy Nose and Cooner, and it was love at first sight! Happy Nose and Cooner prove that you are never too old to find love.Cooner 181105 and Happy Nose 181104

NHS staff and volunteers took pride in knowing that they could help facilitate their adoption and that the cats are now comfortable in their loving, new home.
