First pet adoption of 2020: Shadow finds a family

THE CAT SHADOW, shown here with his new family, Kristian and Tyler, was the first pet to be adopted from Homeward Bound in 2020.

MIDDLEBURY — Shadow, a 4-year-old domestic short hair tiger cat weighing 8 pounds, 6 ounces was the first animal adopted from Homeward Bound in 2020. She was adopted by Kristian and Tyler of Essex Junction on January 2 at 2:28 p.m.
Shadow came to the shelter when her elderly owner needed to go to a nursing home; Shadow had been with her since she was a kitten. Kristian’s 24 year-old cat died last year; she had been her guardian since the first grade.
Shadow’s adoption represents the first of many happy families Homeward Bound expects to create this year.  Congratulations to Shadow and her new family.
