The “adoptable cat of the week” in metro Atlanta this week is Christian from SNAP-2 IT. Christian is a four-month old male shorthaired yellow tabby. Here is more about Christian from the SNAP-2 IT blog:
“Christian is a dignified, laid back orange tabby that was rescued from a trailer park north of Atlanta. SNAP maintains a relationship with a number of locations that care for ferals, but when the colony caregiver spotted Christian, they knew that he wasn’t feral at all, but needed a permanent home. Christian is about four months old.
Christian has large, wide-set eyes that watch everything happening in the Howell Mill adoption center, where he currently lives. He has distinctive, dark orange stripes around his neck, torso, and legs, as well as streaming from the corner of his amber eyes. With his white whiskers and peach-toned nose, Christian would be the perfect addition to any household. He is friendly, savors a good petting and a quiet conversation, and purrs quickly when humans pay attention to him. Christian also appreciates a good, comfortable lap and often sits quietly with our volunteers, enjoying their company.
Christian can be adopted alone – he is very self-sufficient – but he also plays well with the other cats in the adoption center. Although he is the largest male there, he is gentle with even the smallest kittens.”
You can meet Christian at the PetSmart Howell Mill adoption center off I-75 & Howell Mill or you can apply for Christian on line on the SNAP-2 IT website.
About SNAP-2 IT (from the website)
“SNAP-2 IT (Spay Neuter Assistance Program) was born from a group of friends who were volunteering in no-kill shelters in metro Atlanta for many years and saw the urgent need for a preventative solution. Collectively, we witnessed multiple abuse cases and countless emails that circulate daily concerning animals who needed to be saved from euthanasia in local shelters. While we understand that no-kill shelters are needed, we also feel more attention needs to be focused on low cost spay/neuter options and to educate pet owners about spaying and neutering to prevent the problem from persisting.”
