Meet Cornelius, Lucy, and Penelope! These 3 domestic short haired cats call themselves the Cat Nation Crew. Cornelius is a nine year old Tabby who fits the definition of a gentleman to a “t”. Lucy is a four year old female Tuxedo cat, and Penelope is a three year old almost all black cat. Although all three cats were rescued from a local shelter, they all have their own stories of finding their way home.
Mark and Elke (parents of Cornelius, Lucy, and Penelope) knew they wanted to start a fur-family of their own, so they decided to go down to their local shelter and rescue a cat. While looking around, they came across Cornelius’s cage and saw how adorable he was. They asked about his back story, and an employee at the shelter told them that he had been at the shelter for about two years. Mark and Elke could not believe he had been there that long, and after falling in love with him they knew they had to take him home. After having Cornelius, they knew they wanted to add to their family so they went back to the shelter and got Lucy. She was 9 months old, and Mark and Elke knew they wanted a younger cat the second time around. While two cats was a good amount, Mark and Elke knew their family just wasn’t complete yet. So they adopted Penelope shortly after. Penelope stuck out to them because of her back story. She was found in a dumpster and was about to be compacted, when all of a sudden a lady nearby heard kitten cries. So she rushed over, stoped the dumpster from compacting and rescued Penelope.
