I have one of these "less adoptable" animals. Mozart was one of my foster kittens. He got a VERY nasty eye infection and has a visible corneal scar. When he went back to the shelter adoption floor, he was 6 months old, black and scarred. And the vets put a note on his card that he may have to eventually lose the eye. Yeah - that will make people jump up and offer to take him.
After over 2 weeks of him being gone from my house, I broke down and finalized his adoption. 3 years later he is my sweet baby and still has both eyes. And you know what - even if he eventually loses one, who cares?
I will never understand why people want a certain color or gender. Who cares??? Shouldn't it be about the purrsonality and how they will fit in your household???
So - Mo says - get out there and adopt...every kitty and doggy needs a home but especially those that have special needs or some other reason that people overlook them.
Here is our Less Adoptable Pets special: Barney & Oleander
Barney & Oleander would like to be adopted together from Black & Orange Cat Foundation. They are scardey cats that love each other and are both 4-5 years old.
