Meet Cinder:

Update 9/19/2018 –

It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that our sweet boy Cinder crossed the Rainbow Bridge 🌈 this morning. He apparently suffered a stroke on Monday night, and we were advised that the most loving thing we could do for him is to let him go. There are many tears being shed today.

Cinder was a wonderful guy. A beautiful black panther with golden eyes, his greatest wish was to be loved by everyone who came in sight. As soon as someone walked into “his” room, he would come running up meowing for attention. He loved being scatched on the chin and ears and being petted. Despite his age, he also loved to play, especially with the feather on a stick. Everyone here at Safe Place for Pets loved him, and he will be greatly missed by all of us.

The one who will miss Cinder the most though is his bonded “sister” Snickers. She and Cinder were very close, and although they each had their own kennel, they spent most of their time cuddled up together in Snickers’ kennel. She will be lost without him. We will give her as much attention and love as we can, but unfortunately we do not have enough volunteers to have someone at the Welcome Center at all times.

Adoption Bio –

What is better than one cat? A bonded pair, which describes the 2 of us—Cinder and Snickers! I am Cinder, a very handsome black boy with gold eyes. I am 15 years old, neutered, indoor only, with my claws, and I weigh 12 pounds. I am initially very shy, but I get my bearings quickly to enjoy my surroundings and people company. My bonded housemate sister, Snickers, is a 12-year-old calico who is spayed, 16 pounds, and who needs lots of time to feel comfortable with new people and new settings. She has her claws, too, but she hides rather than use them when she is afraid. We have both been with our mom since we were kittens, and we are now boarding at the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center. We recently lost our mom, and her family members were not able to keep us since they are animal lovers (just like our mom) with already full houses of pets. Her daughters did the next best thing and brought us here to live until our new forever family finds us. In our prior home we enjoyed being held and sitting in a warm lap. We have no experience with dogs or cats other than each other. We will be a great addition to a family who knows how to be patient to give Snickers, especially, the time to really settle in to become the affectionate companion she used to be before our world was turned upside-down. I (Cinder) will be your pal quickly, and soon enough, I have no doubt that you will have 2 cat pals.
