Adopt a Mini-Panther
Last Friday, Aug 17th, was Black Cat Appreciation Day. A rescuse group called Adopt NY has come up with a brilliant marketing plan to help black cats get adopted - by branding them as "mini-panthers." It certainly catches your attention! Black cats are often overlooked (just as black dogs are) and have a hard time getting adopted. Is it because of the myth about black cats and bad luck? Is it because their personality doesn't shine through their fur? This could be part of the problem but we all know that you should never judge a book by it's cover.
The Nantucket Safe Harbor for Animals shelter has several wonderful black cats, male & female, that are available for adoption now. Each has their own unique personality, likes and dislikes, and each would love to find a home to curl up and feel safe in.
Please look at these little faces and consider adopting your own mini-panther. Call the shelter at (508) 825-2287 for more information. You can download an application form here.
