Due to not getting along so well with small children in a household because of his sheer size, Edgar was surrendered to the Humane Society of Carroll County in Maryland. All the shelter staff was amazed by the weight and the high of this 9-year-old cat when he was first brought through the door. He was very tall and weighed in at just over 20 lbs.
“We were all a bit taken back with his size. He weighed in at 21lbs,” – Charles Brown, Executive Director of the Humane Society of Carroll County.
Thus, his beauty also hypnotized people, his behavior was another best point of this kitty.
“Edgar was so sweet coming into the shelter and handled his intake process with shining stars” – Michelle Fidler, director of animal care at the Humane Society of Carroll County.
Everything was just like a miracle since they decided to post ginger furball Edgar on Facebook page of the organization as a campaign because of his noticeable size, Internet cat lovers started to shock them.
“As soon an animal comes into our shelter we develop an adoption plan for it. And in Edgar’s case we launched a social media campaign.”
“Never did I expect to get the response that we did,” Fidler said. “Currently the post has been seen by 1,402,479 people. It has 6.2K likes, 13K shares and 6.7K comments.”
As you can see, the campaign was surprisingly successful with lots of love and attentions just for this enormous kitty. Moreover, there was a couple who really wanted to adopt him thanks to the powerful three-hour campaign on social media. Jenna Marie suggested to her boyfriend that they should give Edgar a companion, he immediately agreed.
“I first saw his photo circling around Facebook on Tuesday and I was in awe. I’ve never seen a cat like him before and he really caught my eye. He’s beautiful!” said Jenna Marie.
“We went to the Humane Society to see if we would be lucky enough to take him home.”
After all these magical hours, Edgar the cat welcomed the couple with his warmth and his chillax expression. He got along with new home quickly! It was a wonderful ending, and Edgar couldn’t be happier. He is loving his big family.
“He has the coolest personality. He’s affectionate and very laid back.” Jenna gave Edgar the cat an honest compliment.
