Palmetto Animal League makes a lifetime commitment to every animal and adopter. At PAL, we never give up on an animal, and that includes 15-year-old brothers Panda and Taylor.

They were adopted from PAL as kittens back in 2006, and they knew a loving and supportive home their whole lives, until they tragically lost their human this fall. We welcomed Panda and Taylor back to PAL with open arms and aching hearts.

“At 15 years old, they want nothing more than to spend the rest of their lives together, snuggling with their person and napping with one another,” said PAL volunteer Lori Higgins.

Our greatest wish this holiday season is to find Panda and Taylor a forever home together.

“At the adoption center, we often find them snuggled up in a comfy chair,” says PAL adoption coordinator Sally Dawkins. “They are the last bit of home each other has.”

Panda and Taylor are wonderful, no drama, low-maintenance boys who thrive on affection, cuddles, and lap time. But make no mistake, these senior cats live each day to the fullest! 

“They still have their kitten spunk at times and never turn down playtime with a wand toy or catnip,” said Dawkins.

“The boys,” as we call them at PAL, have been through so much since losing their beloved caretaker and the only home they knew. We are their temporary family, but we hope and pray someone will fall in love with Panda and Taylor and give them the real home they deserve.

Bring home the love and devotion of a rescue pet during Palmetto Animal League’s “Season of Second Chances.” We are waiving adoption fees for cats, kittens, and adult dogs Dec. 1 through Jan. 1, and our knowledgeable staff and volunteers are dedicated to helping you find your next great love.

Even if you can’t adopt, you can still help homeless pets this holiday season. PAL’s Christmas cards make a great gift for all the animal-lovers in your life. Make a donation and we’ll send an eCard to your designated recipient or provide you with a special card to print and give as a gift. Your card will make someone’s day and help save pets in need of rescue. For details, visit and click on “Holiday Gifts.” 

Still thinking about Panda and Taylor? Call PAL at 843-645-1725 to schedule a meet and greet at our comfortable, upbeat adoption center located in Okatie’s Riverwalk Business Park. “The boys” will be in Cat Room 7, waiting to soak up your love and nap in your lap.
