Adoption Announcement – 11/10/2018
Two happy guys here—myself, Oscar, and my new dad! I have a new furever home in Longmont, Colorado, and my dad has a new cat companion. Speaking for myself, I could not be happier! I came to the Safe Place for Pets cattery this past February, when my prior dad passed away from his illness and my “sister” (his daughter) could not keep me because of her cat allergy. The first time my new dad and I met at the end of September, I had to think about whether he was the one for me, but the second time we met, I knew it—I even gave him a head rub so he knew that he was taken (and the other cattery cats could not claim him). In my new home I have big windows to look out at the world and sunny spots where I can nap. And I brought my favorite shoe lace (from my prior home) and my cube from the cattery (which I monopolized) with me. But best of all, I have a lap to curl up in (just like I had with my prior dad)! Before I sign off and get back to enjoying my new life, I want to give big thank-you’s to my sister and her husband for taking care of me after I lost my prior dad and taking me to Hamlett Spay and Neuter Clinic for my check-up and vaccinations…and to Buxton Veterinary Hospital for my additional vet care to ensure I was healthy (which I am!) prior to my adoption…and to the Safe Place for Pets volunteers for my fleece snuggly…and to the awesome SP4P cattery volunteers who gave me lots of love and attention during my stay! I know that the whole Safe Place for Pets team is wishing my new dad and me many happy years together, and we are off to a great start!
Adoption Bio – 2/4/2018
Hello, everyone! My name is Oscar and I would like to introduce myself. I am a very handsome all-gray, neutered cat, with gold eyes, and I weigh about 12 pounds. I just arrived at the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center. Even though it is comfortable, and the room service and housekeeping staff (aka cattery volunteer team) is great, my being here means that I need a new furever home. I sadly lost my dad last fall, and his daughter and son-in-law were not able to keep me because of the daughter’s cat allergy. All of us were very disappointed, but they did the next best thing to help me find that new special someone by bringing me here.
When my dad and I were still together, I enjoyed being outside during the day and visiting with the neighbors. I always came inside at night and really loved just being close to my dad and sitting in his lap as much as possible. I am a very playful guy, even for a 13-year-old, and really get excited about chasing strings, shoelaces, and cords…look out if you have drawstring cords on a sweatshirt hood! At the end of the day, I liked to sleep curled up on the bed close to my dad. Since my dad has passed away, I have adjusted quite well to being indoor-only. If there is a window to sit in to watch the world, I’m good.
Since I tend to be shy and wary in new situations, I am taking my time settling in at the Welcome Center. So far, I am doing OK with the other cats living there, and I have not had to use my claws or growl vigorously at them, but I have uttered a low rumble to let them know that I am not so sure about them just yet. The cattery volunteers are very nice, and I am looking forward to getting to know them and enjoying their attention. An even better option is to meet you to see if we might be a good fit for each other. You can visit me by calling Safe Place for Pets at 719-359-0201 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope to see you soon!
