Last week we told you about a desperate search to find homes for two Brooklyn Heights cats–pets of Ernie Salvi, the longtime caretaker at a Heights church who’s recently retired and fallen seriously ill. Ernie’s about to move into an assisted living facility and was trying to find loving homes for his furkids, Orange-cha and Gray-cha, or as the folks at the Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition described them to us, an “Orange Blob” and a “Cuddle Butt.”
Dorothy Sherman wrote today to tell us–that with time running out–a home has been found for “The Chas,” who will be taken in at the Love and Hope Sanctuary in Franklin, New York. “Thank you so much for helping long-time Brooklyn Heights resident, Ernie Salvi, to find a loving home for The Big Orange Blob and his sidekick Cuddle Butt,” Sherman told us.
Just like Salvi’s new home, the Sanctuary cares for kitties with special needs (The Chas are both FIV positive) and a virtual tour of the facility reveals a kittie wonderland with indoor and outdoor space and plenty of things to climb on and claw at.
