A heartbreaking note on Romeo’s cage detailed the death of Romeo’s owner, and how he was having a hard time adjusting to life without his best friend.
Romeo’s video went viral on TikTok and in short order, a new home for the orphaned cat was secured.
@humanebroward Oh Romeo 😔🥺 Romeo’s owner passed away… he lost his best friend 💔 Romeo was then taken in by a neighbor, but they became allergic. Now sweet Romeo is frightened and confused, living in a noisy shelter. His whole world changed, and so he hides in his bed, too scared to come out. To help this 5-year-old adjust to all of the changes in his life, he will be staying in a foster home. To meet him please call 954-989-3977 x.6 ❤️ #fyp #foryou #foryoupage #adoptme #cat #catsoftiktok #catlover #sadcat ♬ original sound – Humane Society Broward County
