Florida Cat Returned to Shelter All Because New Family's Other Cats 'Didn't Like Her'

If there was one thing we wish people knew about becoming a pet owner it would be that it's no easy task. Between the training and the constant attention they need, it's almost like having a full-time job. That's why it saddens us beyond anything when owners return their animals to the shelter.

That's what happened to this beautiful black cat named Lily. Lily is currently at a Florida shelter, known on TikTok as @humanebroward. She's been living there for over 75 days. Ugh, our hearts. And the reason why she's there will break you even more.


Lily has been returned to the shelter 😔💔 Sadly, our forgotten feline Lily is back at the shelter looking for a loving family. This 8-year-old beauty has been through so much. First, she was given up because her former owner became ill. Now, she has been returned because the other cats in the house did not like her. Lily is a wonderful older cat ❤️ #cat #catsoftiktok #blackcat #adoptme #sadcat #catvideo #fyp #foryou #foryoupage #catrescue #catlover #florida #fortlauderdale #adopt

Aww, poor Lily! We understand that owners do get sick and can no longer take care of their fur babies. But what we don't understand is how her second owners could just bring her back to the shelter since the other cats 'didn't like her.'

"People don’t understand it takes months and months for cats to get used to each other. Poor girl will find her home," commented @louienhallie. It's so true. You can't give up on them after only a few days. "I feel so bad for her that I will leave the UK and go all the way to get her," said @felipe_flamingoo. Aww! If only Lily knew how many people out there in the world would bring her home in a heartbeat. She is so loved!

If we had our own place, we wouldn't know how to stop adopting because we'd keep bringing them home. If you're interested in learning more about Lily or adopting her, please visit the Humane Society Broward County website. Let's find Lily her final and forever home. For real this time!
