Ladies and Gentlemen welcome to our candidate for Adopt a Cat Month! San Francisco residents this is an heads up for YOU, and pals – shares would be welcomed to get this boy out there!
We blogged about Andy here, but I want to push the boy even MORE now its Adopt a Cat Month. I repeat the details as Andy deserves to see out his sunshine years with a local adopter in San Fran.
May I introduce Andy a Senior Seal Point Siamese from San Francisco, for those of you old enough (Mum says) you may remember ‘Streets of San Francisco’ with Karl Malden and Michael Douglas (pre-mega fame days) mid-late 1970’s.
Where :- Location Animal Care & Control San Francisco (adopter must be local)
Who :- Andy Seal Point Siamese 12 years young
Unfortunately, Andy’s owner passed away and he lost his home. We don’t want to see Andy live out the rest of his life in boarding. Can you provide his retirement home and love for his golden years? Andy is a mellow, friendly boy. He’s looking for his retirement community where he can lounge around and spend time with his new person. (FB more pictures here)
He enjoys attention, but isn’t a needy fellow. He does have some special dietary requirements, who doesn’t in San Francisco? He does have slightly higher than normal renal values, but with the proper care and love he may have several years ahead of him. At the moment, he doesn’t require any additional care, just some special renal diet food. He also doesn’t hear so well, but he doesn’t need to be able to hear to spend quality time with you.
Stattistiks for Shelter Cats that will scare you……..
- According to the ASPCA, (in America, for international readers) approximately 37% of cats that enter shelters are adopted, 41% are euthanased, and then less than 5% of cats who enter as a stray are returned to their owner.
- Additionally, the average number of litters a fertile cat produces is one to two a year; the average number of kittens is four to six per litter. Do your sums, even with paws this at adds up very VERY FAST.
- Black cats are the least likely to get adopted from a shelter – we think this is dumb but that’s what we are told!
- As our dear pal Brian Frum says ADOPT US. WE DESERVE IT!!!
