A cat put his arms around everyone at the animal shelter until he found a family of his own.

A Good Samaritan came across a stray cat searching for food and started feeding and keeping an eye on him.

As the cat warmed up to them, they decided it was time to bring him in from the cold. They contacted Lollypop Farm, hoping to give the cat the good life he deserved.

“It was clear that the cat was very friendly and socialized before living outdoors,” Lollypop Farm shared with Love Meow. “It is believed that he was left behind when his previous caretakers moved away.”

Upon arriving at the shelter, the cat was immediately affectionate, rubbing his face against people, eager for their attention.

Initially, they thought the cat was a girl until, during a vet exam, they discovered he’d had a procedure (commonly performed on male cats) for urinary obstructions. “Lenu was a boy, after all. Everyone loved him just the same.”

Lenu received much-needed care to help him thrive and plenty of attention and love. The sweet cat followed his people around, trying to be wherever they were.

“He spent his days cuddling with staff members and volunteers. He loved everyone. He is a 4-year-old, 17-pound gentle soul who just wants to snuggle everyone he meets.”

Lenu would crawl onto any open lap and wrap his arms and legs around his person. He’d chirp, purr, and stretch his toes while slow-blinking contentedly.

When a staff member’s son came to visit the shelter animals, Lenu was determined to make an impression. His goal in life is to dote on every human he comes across and make them fall in love.

As soon as the boy sat down on the floor, Lenu made a beeline for him and lay comfortably on him. His rotund body filled the boy’s lap, and his right arm extended out as if shielding him from the world.

Lenu gave his little visitor the biggest bear hug he could muster, pressing his face against his chest, purring up a storm.

That day, the shelter shared a photo of the two buddies hanging out, enjoying each other’s company on their social media pages, hoping it would reach the right family.

A couple stumbled upon Lenu’s post and was instantly smitten with him. They went to the shelter that afternoon to meet him, and it was love at first sight. Lenu plopped himself on their lap as if to say, “You have been chosen.”

“He was adopted exactly one day after becoming available for adoption.”

Lenu quickly settled into his new home and fit into the couple’s lives perfectly. “My husband and I love his gentle temperament. He gets all the belly rubs and the chin scratches. He acclimated so fast, and he’s become our baby boy,” Lenu’s new mom shared.

“We continued with his special diet and got him a special water fountain to help hydrate.”

He is the love bug in the house, offering his mom and dad endless cuddles. “My husband and I adore him and enjoy every cuddle and cute moment with him. I’m able to stay at home with him and give him snuggles whenever he wants them.

In true Lenu fashion, he makes sure every person that comes through the door gets a dose of his love.

“He does so well meeting family and friends and loves to be the center of attention. We couldn’t have asked for a better guy, and we couldn’t love him more.”
