As you may know, I’ve been trying to promote adoptions for some fantastic cats that I know through Fuzzy Undertones. I like to think of it as a kind of “cat adoption hit-list”, if you will. Last month, I posted about my favorite tuxedoed polydactyl cat, Bandit, who is up for adoption at Furry Friends, a no-kill cat rescue organization here in Vancouver, WA. I’m hoping that we’ve got something in the works for Bandit and one of his admirers, so keep your fingers crossed (Bandit is keeping several of his bonus-toes crossed as well). I will keep you updated on any adoption activity with Bandit, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, this month I’d like to share with you a lovely cat by the name of Penny. She’s about six years old (born June 2008) and lived as an indoor cat with an elderly woman for the past four years. Unfortunately, her human companion had to go into a medical facility, and her neighbor took responsibility for Penny. Also unfortunately, the apartment complex told the neighbor that he could not keep Penny, so she was brought to Furry Friends so that they could help her find a forever home. And since I volunteer with Furry Friends, I thought I’d offer my assistance by sharing with you some wonderful things about Penny.
Interesting facts about Penny
- Penny is an orange tabby! There are four orange male tabbies for every female, so this makes Penny somewhat rare and special.
- There are a lot of famous orange cats, and I’d like to make Penny Internet-famous too! Some famous ginger cats are: Garfield, Morris the Cat, Jones from the movie “Alien”, and Orangey, who starred with Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” in 1961. Can you think of any others?
- Penny loves to perch up on high shelves and observe the world from above, but she will come down when tempted with petting and scritches from her beloved human friends!
You can tell that Penny was mighty attached to her long-time human companion. Penny is eager to receive petting and brushing, and will demand to sit in your lap for full-body pets (in fact, when I was sitting down on the floor today taking pictures of her she jumped into my lap and immediately started making muffins (aka “happy paws”) on my tummy. I know I’m soft, but hey…). She is quick to purr, and gets along well with the other kitties that she is currently rooming with. She’s current on her shots, doesn’t have any special medical needs, and is ready to fit into a home with anyone who can give her lots of love and affection! Take a look at that sweet sweet face – you can’t tell me that you wouldn’t benefit from having this lovely girl in your life!
