Ma Kettle’s previous owner — who called her Lady — died in 2012, leaving her homeless. She then arrived & was adopted out of the Chautauqua County Animal Shelter, in Kansas, but then given away again for not getting along with a new puppy.
She then escaped her third home, and walked back nearly 30 miles to the family with the puppy, but the journey ended with her being sent back to the shelter..
After her sad story went viral, she is now adopted by the heiress of Wrigley (Helen Rosburg, also known as the author Helen Rich) and will spend the rest of her life in an 11,000 square foot home on 100-odd acres, with a whole menagerie of furry rescue companions & will be spoiled and loved.
Here she is on a private jet to her new home:
