KHTS Adopt A Pet: Ace, St. Bonnie’s Sanctuary (VIDEO)

A laidback tabby named Ace is one of the biggest cats in need of a home at St. Bonnie’s Sanctuary, and his large size is what first caught the rescue’s attention back in March.

When St. Bonnie’s staff arrived at the Lancaster Shelter, they noticed 4-year-old Ace uncomfortably trying to lay down in a cubby he was just too big for.KHTS Adopt a Pet - Ace

“He filled up his whole cage, so we felt terrible,” said Megan Haselwood, an adoption counselor at the rescue. “He’s such a huge cat, so there was no room for him to run around, there was no room for him to even use his litter box.”

The former stray found himself headed to St. Bonnie’s, where he now spends his days watching the birds and lounging in a large outdoor cat enclosure with his feline friends while he waits for a home of his own.

“He seems a lot happier,” Haselwood said. “When we put him in our outdoor enclosure, his personality opened up, he opened up and he feels like, ‘Okay, I can be me.’”

Good with dogs, other cats and kids, Ace would do well in any home that can give him lots of cuddle time and view of the great outdoors.

“He’s not only huge, but his heart is huge too,” Haselwood said. “He needs to go home, he’s been here too long.”
