Adopt a Shelter Cat Month: Marcel! »
Take a look at Marcel! He is from Brooklyn and he’s a real looker! From his foster-mom Rebecca:
I’d like you to meet Marcel, a kitty in serious need of a foster or permanent home. He is a very cute little cat, with a tuxedo coat and charming white mustache. Marcel and I met a couple weeks ago in front of the automotive high school in Williamsburg. He was hiding next to the steps, watching the cars go by, and as soon as I started talking to him, he jumped up and began to meow, roll around, and play in the grass. He was very excited to have the attention. I was hopeful that he was a lost cat I’d seen posted about in the neighborhood, but sadly that is not the case. Right now he is at the recovery space/shelter I help out at, which is mainly used for trap-neuter-return projects. It is a busy place, with lots of other cats, and Marcel is overwhelmed. He is very, very frightened by all the activity and spends almost all of his time in the corner of his cage. Still, even though he is nervous, he immediately responds to affection by purring and kneading. He’s a really sweet cat.
Because the shelter space is causing him so much stress, Marcel needs a foster or permanent home as soon as possible. He is approximately 1 year old, neutered, and healthy. If you or anyone you know would be interested in fostering or adopting him, or just meeting him to start, please let me know! I meet lots and lots of cats, and I have to say Marcel is an exceptionally good one.
I love his white mustache! And I love the name Marcel! Jeez, everybody is giving their rescue cats such great names these days! But, I should tell you, if you don’t like your adopted cat’s name, you can totally change it. I wasn’t sure about that when I was adopting, like I was like, that’s kind of rude to change the cat’s name! But my dog trainer at the time was like, “they don’t know it’s their NAME, they think it’s an attention command” and I was like, OMG totally! So you’re really just changing the attention command. But I’m actually not as gallant as I’m pretending—Mitsy’s original name was Maisy, which I thought was frumpy, but I chose the name Mitsy because it wasn’t that much of an adjustment. I like the name though because you can call her Mitzerella! Ooooo you know what?! You could call Marcell “Mars!” Awesome!
Um, where was I? This handsome devil needs a home. Somebody take him in! You could just foster him for a bit, and then I’ll do ANOTHER post for you saying he’s now being fostered! I promise. And like I said before, if any of you know of a nice shelter kitty looking for a home, send me a pic during June and I’ll post it! Also email me if you are interested in adopting or fostering Marcel!
