STILL GOING STRONG | For one local cat, age is just a number
DUNDALK, Md. (WBFF) - Inside her home in Dundalk, Laura Cassiday wears her heart on her sleeve.
"I got it because it feels like this is my calling," she said, showing off the outline of a cat she has tattooed on her arm.
Cassiday volunteers with Animal Allies Rescue Foundation, a Baltimore non-profit organization.
"We are known for taking some of the most difficult cases," she said.
Last week, the group took in an unusual cat.
"That would be Thomas. I got him last Thursday," Cassiday said. "He's 26, which is what the owner said when they brought him to the shelter."
Despite his advanced age, Thomas doesn't show too many signs of slowing down.
"He's 26, but he still plays," Cassiday said. "He gets around pretty well."
Cassiday hopes that anyone wanting to adopt a pet would consider an older animal.
"Kittens will always be there, but cats will sit there a lot longer. They need homes just as much."
