Before the press release, the shelter hadn't received any adoption inquiries about the sweet little Ivan, but thanks to the announcement, he had well over 2,000 requests! They needed to make sure that his new home would be the perfect fit, but luckily they had a lot of options.
People from all over the world applied to bring Ivan home. The shelter received applications from families in Thailand, China, Australia, Canada, the U.K. and across 40 states in America, and they were finally able to find someone who would be able to take good care of this sweet little boy.
The family they picked were happy to get him, continuing his Instagram for all those who want to keep up to date with the sweet cat. You can follow him at IvantheTwisted. There were so many families drawn to the shelter that Ivan wasn't the only cat to get adopted! The shelter says that two senior cats found homes as well!
