Frankie Sad Eyes Needs A Home

Even though I am the honored servant to the king, His Grace Buddy I, I am not immune to adoptable cats who tug at the heartstrings.

Frankie Sad Eyes is one of those cats. Just look at those eyes!

The little guy is 13 years old, and at an age when he should be enjoying a quiet, nap- and treat-filled life as the senior statesman among cats, he’s been surrendered by his people and has landed in a shelter.

Thankfully that shelter is Tabby’s Place, a no-kill, no-cage sanctuary in New Jersey that has a reputation for doing right by its cats. Still, any feline would be shocked by the experience of losing his or her family and ending up in a strange place with unfamiliar people and cats.

Frankie looks sad, and undoubtedly he’s finding it difficult adjusting to life in a sanctuary, but staff at Tabby’s Place say he’s a “joyful” cat with a zest for life.

Alas, I can’t adopt Frankie. Like the King himself, he’s not particularly keen on sharing his throne, so there can be no future where Buddy and Frankie are, well, buddies.

But Frankie, who is described as “a zesty, exuberant sweetheart” who still has kitten-like energy, is looking for a home where he can establish his new and forever kingdom, with a human or humans who will dote on him and see to his every need.

Visit Tabby’s Place to view their adoptable cats, make a donation or just brighten your day.

    1. I got a nice note from the people who run Tabby’s Place and they’re gonna keep us in the loop with Frankie. I can’t imagine he’ll have to wait long for a good home.


  1. Frankie needs a good solid home, and he potentially has many years left in him with good care. The oldest cat I ever took on was roughly 16 years old when she came to live with us and lived to the ripe old age of 22. Senior cats make very good companions, and have a lot of love to give. One has to be prepared for the various medical conditions that creep in with age, as well as the vet bills that follow. Think of adopting an older animal as doing a bit of goodness for the world, and also a bit of goodness for oneself. Definitely in the plus column in the Great Ledger of Life.

    1. Indeed. And the most important thing is that you gave that 16 year old cat a good home and love for her last years. It’s sad to think of how many senior cats remain in shelters.
