Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet

Pet Adoption  What is it about the one particular animal that grabs your heart?  Everyone always wants the cute kitten or puppy?  I say babies are overrated!!

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.  Barney: Tabby - Brown, Cat; Plain City, OH


  1. Good for you, and good for Mozart! We are so happy for you both! Our fingers and paws are crossed for Barney and Oleander to find their forever home soon.

  2. You gave Mozart a chance at a happy life...and are both happy now! Kudos to you for adopting a 'less adoptable' kitty!

  3. Yay for both of you! Other than Cookie and Caramel (our first attempt at fostering) all of The Furry Bambinos are "less adoptables". Panda Bear has one eye, his sister Meerkat has scarring in her right eye, Padre was older (4-5 years) when we adopted him, and Sunny & Sky are still semi-feral.
