Luther's smile brings joy to the family

"The first night in his new home, he snuggled up to his new owner while smiling from ear to ear."

A message from Kaylene Page about her cat, Luther:

"I adopted Luther, formerly Pumpkin, in 2021. I am a life-long pet owner, but a first time adopter from NHS. I wanted to submit our following success story:

Luther, formerly Pumpkin, was adopted in November 2021. The first night in his new home, he snuggled up to his new owner while smiling from ear to ear. His adoptive name was chosen after Luther Vandross.

Joining his cat sister, Mali, he immediately wanted to be her friend, play, and cuddle. However, Mali had been an only cat and took a little longer to warm up. But Luther knew the closer he gets to her, the more he’d make her see how much fun they could have together. He was persistent and patient. In no time, Luther taught his new sister how to play “High Speed Chase” through the house.

Finally, after 80 days, Luther has won Mali over with his endless love, and they snuggled together for the first time. (Note his heart-melting smile with this accomplishment!) Luther has been such an important addition to my home. I couldn’t be more thankful to Nebraska Humane Society for their patience and support to help me find the perfect fit for my family!!"

Thank you, Kaylene, for giving Luther a wonderful, loving home. Anyone who wants to adopt their own best friend can see all of our available pets here.
