We think we can all agree that being different makes us each unique and individual. Yet, being different for adoptable animals makes it harder for them to find homes. People seem to want that "perfect" pet. We think that being a different color or having something like FIV or FeLV or CH makes us each more special. So, talk to your friends and look in your hearts the next time you go to adopt and consider taking in an animal that may not appear perfect but will shower you with love.
Tumbles is a cat at Best Friends who has cerebellar hypoplasia....which means he walks a little funny. Add to that the fact that he is a black cat, and he seems to have 2 strikes right out of the box.
And he is one of many. Unfortunately, most shelters can't or won't take on those animals that need more medical care or more "work". Thankfully some places will. Here are a few more we know of:

Oh Tumbles..my mommy loves you already and I hope you find a momma that is there where you are and able to give you the love you deserve and need. Many many kisses.ReplyDelete
As if Humans are perfect! Every furkid deserves a Home.ReplyDelete
Awww, Tumbles! That's almost like Rumbles!! I wish we could take you home (but our home is very far from where you are.)ReplyDelete
It's always beyond me how these gorgeous kitties and woofies are overlooked just because. I do hope next week's event will raise awareness and increase more adoptions! Take careReplyDelete
My great wish is all animals in your forever homes!ReplyDelete
Excellent post. We hope all of them find wonderful homes quickly.ReplyDelete
Awww, Tumbles...your name isn't the only cute thing about you! Hope there is just the kinda home out there that you deserve! Thanks for the links, too...we know about Blind Cat Rescue but will go check out Crashs Landing, new to us! Thanks for stopping by our blog and leaving such a nice comment...you made Teri glow! Hey, how far are you from Indianapolis...we are coming up to a cat show there in November...ReplyDelete
I never heard of Crash's Landing before! I will have to check them out.ReplyDelete
We've put the link up on our website to spread the word. It's so sad that people persist in having silly prejudices against animals such as black cats. :(ReplyDelete
Great post, kit-cat pals! Tumbles sure looks like a nice friend for someone; I hope he finds his forever home!ReplyDelete
Tumbles is so cute and I love his beautiful black coat. I hope he can find his forever home soon!ReplyDelete
