I spy a cat.
And then there is this monkey...
Her favorite spot. Away from the dogs.
Two shelter cats that have stood out in the last two weeks:
This 4 year old orange/red tabby is a hoot! He's incredibly outgoing, curious and confident. He's a bundle of love and energy.
He is a funny guy - as in he had us laughing with his antics. He climbed on the "obstacle course/trapeze" all the way to the ceiling!
He's a thinker. We could see him problem-solving his way to the top of the tower. He's obviously active and an adventure-seeker.
He did it!! The only cat we have observed making it this far!
Once he had accomplished his goal he was ready for treats and some relaxation ~ and purring.
He is truly a gentle giant and just a GREAT cat! He's available for adoption at the Aurora Animal Shelter, 15750 East 32nd Avenue in Aurora, Colorado 303-326-8280 - ask for A173954. He's a keeper for sure!
Up next is this great guy - a gorgeous, healthy 5 year old grey/brown tabby. He is another curious boy, playful and oh so adorable!
He has an spirit of adventure, too, and enjoyed climbing the trapeze.
But the best part? He's a cuddle bug, too! He loved being held and purred loudly. He was so relaxed after exploring and climbing he just curled up and listened to us chatter on.
I mean, come on ~ look at that face! He's just waiting for you at the Aurora Animal Shelter, 15750 East 32nd Avenue, Aurora, Colorado 303-326-8280. Ask for A173786. You won't be sorry!
If you can't adopt right now or aren't quite sure, consider fostering. Fostering an animal gives them a break from the animal shelter and may even save their life. And wow - do they relax once they are in a real home! I can tell you from my fostering experience (which lasted about 5 minutes before we adopted Kia) it is a wonderful way to really get to know an animal.
While fostering your foster animal is still available for adoption and you can provide valuable information about the pet ~ which in turn makes it rise to the top as far as adoptability! You have first-hand knowledge of what this animal is really like and that is gold!
