Adopt Charleston Cats continues promoting so many felines that remain in the shelters looking for their guardians. Unfortunately, so many wonderful and beautiful creatures remain homeless and have not yet found the safety of the shelter or foster home yet, but so many individuals are working hard to help.
There has been a lot of interest in Pet Helpers' adoptable cat, Ubie, an owner-surrendered sphynx cat who is 8 years young. We have received multiple information requests regarding this beautiful boy. Ubie is, however, still looking for his forever family where he can be a sole pet. We have added a Ubie page to our website, and he is this week's website "feature" feline.
Indigo, a Charleston Animal Society Adoption Ambassador, continues to be our current foster cat and is showing improvement in her behavior likely due to a combination of taking medication and having been back in our home for the past month. She now sleeps next to me every night, allows me limited time (but increasing) to pet her, curls up in the chair next to me whenever I'm on my laptop, and has given purrs more freely. Improvement continues and she has mellowed out enough that finding pet parents or a barn in need of a barn cat can be in her future. Due to her interaction with us, we will not be placing her with a family as children will not be good for her, nor her for them.
This week, we have the opportunity to kitty-sit again for one of our former Charleston Animal Society foster kittens from 2013. Julia Child was delivered to us last Thursday and will remain with us through this week. She is now a year and a half young, and one of the most energetic and curious cats we have had. She adores heights and no spot in our home is too high for Miss Julia. She has found her way on top of every kitchen cabinet, on the window ledge above our front door, and everywhere in between. A week full of free entertainment! We will miss her when she returns home, but we know she is so very loved and cared for by her human parent.
On Sunday I returned to Charleston Animal Society and volunteered in their Cat Room. While the kennels are not full, there are cats waiting for adoption. So many nice cats that deserve to have a place to call their own and we were able to share with our Facebook friends many photos of adoptable cats, future adoptable kittens, as well as several felines that were fortunate to find their forever families on Sunday afternoon. We have also added an additional cat to our website pages and we ask that you check out "Townes", a handsome adult male that was a very enjoyable cat to visit and play with.
We hope you will take some time out of your busy schedule to stop by our local shelters and visit with the adoptable cats and kittens. If you don't see one that you fall in love with, please ask the staff about if there are any adoptable cats in other areas of the building are if they have placed any in the local Petsmart or Petco locations in Charleston. Remember our community of adoptable cats is among us in so many places...hopefully you will find your perfect match. Adopt Charleston Cats also shares photos and information about other adoptable cats that are not in area shelters; and these felines will be fully vetted and available for adoption from area rescue organizations. Please do not hesitate to look for these other animals or message us if you are looking for something special.
