Happy Tail: Two Maine Coon cats are adopted after a 6-month search


After a six-month search for the “right” pets, Claire Sterling found the perfect match for her family — or in this case, matches: Buddy and Baby, two 7-year-old Maine Coon cat siblings.


Read these two cats’ adoption story in adoptive mom Claire’s words. .

Their story touched her heart. The cats’ owner had died and a neighbor had been feeding them, but that was a short-term solution because their house was about to be boarded up.

Fortunately, Animal Rescue Force in East Brunswick, NJ, took them in posted them on Petfinder, where Claire saw them.

“Although they were both shy at the adoption site,” Claire says, “they almost instantly transformed into gregarious cuddle bugs within minutes of arriving at our house. We are honored to have inherited these wonderful little beings.”

It was a sweet outcome for the cats, who are now, fittingly, named Tartufo and Tiramisu.
