Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet Week - Black Cats
Sweetpea here. Even tho I am cute and cuddly and floofy, lots of beans would not like me cuz I am a black cat. Isn't that ridiculous? It's true. Did you know that black cats in shelters have the lowest adoption rate and the highest euthanasia rate?
Maybe cuz we don't photograph well indoors, or old time superstitions still play a part but it is just not the case - we make great pets. Besides black goes with everything. Black is beautiful - we come in all shades of black from blue black to shiny black with tiny white highlights. Every house should have a House Panther cuz we bring love and luck to your home. We should know- we have five of us black cats here from age 5 years to 12 years - Ivy, me, Mamcita, Rosa, and Minnie.
Animal Compassion Network in Asheville, NC. Senior pets are the least likely to get adopted of all pets in a shelter. Well, Clubber, pictured above, still has not been adopted so in honor of Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet Week he is our first featured cat.
He has six toes on his front paws and is very huggable and lovable. He just needs a calm quiet home to live out the rest of his life in. Please pass this on and help find him a forever home.
Another cat we featured on our Forever Fridays is this lovely long haired cat below. Shadow is a 1 year old Maine coon mix who has been adopted out twice but came back to the shelter for different reasons. He has been at the shelter since May this year and is still there. He needs a loving home.
Shadow is available at the Avery County Humane Shelter in Newland, NC. Again - please pass this on in hopes we can find the purrfect home for him. Please join us in blogging about this great theme this week hosted by Petfinders. Go grab a badge and join in!
