If you have a heart the underdogs (or undercats), you know there’s no greater example than a black cat in a shelter. Black cats are the slowest to get adopted, presumably because they carry outdated superstitions about bad luck, but not only are black cats considered GOOD luck in many cultures, but they tend to have very sleek fur that doesn’t shed as much, are very slimming, and sorry, but are just as cute and deserving of a home as any other color kitty. They also look great in multiples – imagine a pack of house panthers!
With all that said, let us shine a spotlight on little Shena. This roughly 3-year old girl was found as a stray so we don’t know her origin story. She’s a bit shy, and that combined with her solid black kitty status has caused her to be totally overlooked so far. We know that without a doubt that she would thrive and open up in a quiet household that shares her passion for sunbathing and baking shows, so please don’t let her potential continue to go unnoticed! Really, few treats and chin scratches are enough to get on her good side forever, and what other friendship is that easy? She’s also the master of the elevator butt so please don’t limit your scratches to chins. Shena would be the perfect kitty to give a second look to during our Adopt a House Panther adoption promo, so please consider stopping in to meet this gentle soul today!
