TikTok user @alberts_tail shared the beautiful moment rescued cat Albert realized he had found his forever home. Some 6.3 million people have watched the short but sweet video in just a little over a month. 

You can see the exact moment the 5-year-old cat knows his hard days on the streets are over. In the almost 20 thousand comments, many people said the emotional moment brought them to tears.

Albert Lived on the Streets for Years

According to the TikTok videos, the Australian stray lived feral for two years, hiding from humans trying to rescue him. Finally, rescuers were able to bring him in to receive veterinary care in Wallsend. Although he’s a young cat, he looks much older, having experienced many struggles and hardships.

Then, on March 3, 2021, Albert first enjoyed a taste of his forever home. And, it was just in time, as the tough white cat may not have lived much longer. According to the video, he was “a week away from death.”

“Albert had open cuts and wounds, was infested with fleas, his head was swollen, he had shallow breathing, and he was extremely dehydrated,” says the caption.

Before officially adopting Albert, the rescuers had to surrender him.

“It was heartbreaking,” they say.

Months of Treatment and Uncertainty

 As a stray cat with a microchip, they would have to wait to see if the former owners claimed him. Then, after a week, they learned he was very sick and could pass away overnight. 

Fortunately, the veterinarians saved him, but he required three months of treatment for many health concerns.

Finally, on May 20, Albert was ready to return to his forever home, this time for good. Following his arrival, he still needed months to recover fully.

Today, Albert is “living his best life in his forever home” with a young woman who loves him dearly.

“Every morning, Albert walks up on me and sits on my shoulder to say good morning,” she says.

Christmas with Albert

In the most recent video to date, the TikTok account shared a wonderful Christmas video. In one scene, she hangs an ornament with Albert’s name painted on it. Then, she carries him around the tree while both wear Santas.

Thank you for sharing this touching story, a reminder that a little love can transform everything.

Remember older shelter pets who’ve faced difficulties often make incredible companions, grateful for the love you show them. In return, the love they show in return is boundless.

“What greater gift than the love of a cat ❤️”
