On December 8, a beautiful cat named Ellie was surrendered by her family because she wanted to cuddle with them at night. The heartbreaking situation went viral after a Twitter user shared photos and wrote:
Yall. This is the saddest thing I’ve ever seen. This cat was returned to the shelter because she wanted to cuddle her owners at night. 💔
Ellie’s adoption note card said that she would cry outside of her owner’s door at night…fortunately for Ellie, social media did what social media does. It went viral – the Tweet was was like over 76,000 times and shared more than 6100 times and because of the attention, Ellie found a home.
Greenbriar Humane Society, who initially sheltered Ellie before she went to a rescue partner, said:
The rest of the story – sweet, affectionate Ellie was adopted this past weekend because of her viral story. 🐾😻
Now Ellie can cuddle to her heart’s content.
