The decision to surrender Fig, a rescue cat, back to the shelter he was adopted from seven years ago as a kitten has caused outrage on social media. Fig first arrived at the Valley Animal Center in Fresno, California, as a three-week-old kitten in April 2016. Despite being labeled as a "bottle baby" at the shelter, Fig was quickly adopted and staff assumed he had found his forever home. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, Fig was returned to the shelter as his owners were moving out of the country and unable to take him with them. This unexpected turn of events has left many shocked and saddened, with users on TikTok expressing disbelief that Fig could be returned after seven years of being a cherished family member.

Although the transition back to the shelter can be challenging for most pets, Fig has shown remarkable resilience and remains sweet and cooperative. The Valley Animal Center is hopeful that he will find a new loving home soon, as senior cats like Fig often face longer wait times for adoption compared to kittens. Despite the uncertainties, staff at the shelter believe that Fig's friendly nature and adaptability will make him a perfect fit for a new family. However, time is of the essence, and they are eager for the right person to come along and give Fig the happy ending he deserves.
