pepper: My cat, Katana no Kimi, swiping at the camera (Katana)
Just putting this out there, in case anyone in my local area is in the market for a cat to love and hug and squish (I highly recommend it): this chap is breaking my heart.

He's been on the Cats Protection website for a while now (I've been keeping an eye out for a companion for Kat), and I'd totally take him home if I could. There's going to be an influx of kittens soon, and it makes me so sad to think he'll get ignored in favour of the tiny adorables. They too will grow up into cats all too soon, don't forget!

So, just in case the right person for him happens to be reading my journal...

Ray The Stray: male, neutered, 8 yrs old. Black, short hair. "He is quite shy and will need a quiet home with an understanding owner to let him settle and find his feet."

** I HAVE BEEN HERE AGES :0( PEOPLE KEEP IGNORING ME BECAUSE I HAVE KIDNEY MEDICATION, I TAKE IT VERY WELL AND CATS PROTECTION WILL COVER COSTS OF MY MONTHLY MEDICATION, PLEASE SOMEONE GIVE ME A HOME I AM FED UP IN MY PEN AND I HAVE SO MUCH LOVE TO GIVE!! I STILL HAVE LOTS OF YEARS LEFT AND I WOULD LOVE TO CURL UP ON YOUR SOFA, I HAVE HAD A ROUGH TIME AS A STRAY AND I WANT SOME LOVE AND A HOME OF MY OWN I HAVE BEEN WAITING SO LONG **


*sniffle*

I am not in the right area, and also not looking for another cat yet, but those cat adoption sites break my heart.

Black cats and black-and-white cats are apparently especially likely to be overlooked by adopters, as people think they don't look pretty or interesting.

I HAVE KIDNEY MEDICATION, I TAKE IT VERY WELL

I may have mentioned that my late lamented cat was convinced that his kidney meds were Special Treats For A Very Good Cat.

There was one entertaining conversation with the vet where we discussed the fact that the kidney meds probably weren't achieving anything medically, because he had cancer which was likely to kill him long before the kidney disease started affecting his quality of life, but decided to continue them anyway because he liked them so much.

Aw, kitty! That's so sweet. *sniff*

Yes, I really shouldn't click on the cats that I can't take, but oh, I can't help wishing. I'm sure someone will take him eventually - I've seen some other fleabitten moggies on there, and eventually they get chosen.

I wonder if that has to do with the photos. Because black and black-and-white cats are harder to photograph, IMO - they can look dusty, they can look like one big blob of darkness... they look much better in real life. Kat's CP pic wasn't all that appealing, but in person she was irresistible.

There would have been Reproachful Looks if I'd tried stopping them.
