At the age of 15, Rango, a large Birman mixed breed cat with long fur with beautiful seal markings and big blue eyes, was without a home. His family moved across the country a few months ago and said they just couldn’t take him with them.
Debby Everett, a volunteer who took care of Rango in the habitat at Teca Tu, hoped that Rango would soon find his home forever.
“Rango is a very sweet, loving and sociable senior. He is very pretty, cuddly and loves to be petted and brushed. “
This was the second time Rango had been let down. He lost his first home at the age of 5 when he was rescued and adopted after wandering around Taos. But then Rango was abandoned again. Rango was diagnosed with FIV when he was young, but as is typical of many FIV cats, he never had symptoms. Because FIV is transmitted from cat to cat, Rango had to be placed in a home with no other cats.
Last week, Lester Connelly from Eldorado adopted Rango.
“I have a weakness in my heart and I knew that Rango would probably never be adopted by the age of 15.”
Rango now has his own room in Connelly’s house and will soon be grooming his long coat.
Connelly, who was born and raised on a ranch, has adopted several rescue animals and believed that “no animal should spend its final years waiting for a home. Let him live his life. “
