It being Halloween weekend and all, I thought this fella was fitting for this week’s feature. Casper…the Cat. He must have a bit of defiant rebel in him, though, since he’s really not quite like his name implies.
|Max and Casper|
If you were thinking Casper is the one on the left – well, guess again. He’s the timid one on the right. See those big eyes peeking out from behind his brother? Poor guy, he’s a bit frightened! Here’s what his foster mom has to say about him:
Casper is a very special cat. Sadly, he was stressed in his last home and is very cautious with people right now, especially with men. Once you earn his trust, he becomes the friendliest, cuddliest cat you could know! Casper is the sweetest cat ever and he will melt your heart when he looks at you with his big yellow eyes.
He grew up with his brother, Maxx, who is also available for adoption.
We’ve talked many times before here about the plight of black homeless cats, their diminished chances of being adopted and the stigmas unfairly tagged to them. Those of us who’ve had the privilege of sharing life with a black cat know what an indescribable treasure they can be.
Black cats deserve love too. And Casper? Don’t you think he deserves a second chance, with someone this time around who will ensure he feels safe and loved?
If you live in the Chicagoland area, and think you might be that special Someone who can make life good for Casper, he’s waiting for you at Almost Home Foundation. Casper is healthy, up-to-date with vaccinations, neutered, microchipped, and litterbox trained. He just needs a bright future now.
