Welcome to the Tuesday’s Tails Blog hop, hosted by Dogs N Pawz and Talking Dogs! “This blog hop features shelter animals. Find a cat, dog, rabbit or other animal at a local shelter or rescue and feature them on this blog hop! Come join the fun and help a furry friend find a forever home. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to visit the other blogs and share their animals that need forever homes on your social media sites. Please spread the word!
June is Adopt a(Shelter) Cat Month, so it seemed appropriate to share an adoptable cat this week.
I was recently asked what my favorite breed of cat was. Now I have never had a purebred cat, and almost every cat I’ve had has been a DSH (domestic short haired) and Samantha is probably our first DLH (domestic long haired).
However, I have known some people who had a Maine Coon cat as part of their family, and have always heard that they are great pets. They’re known to have a lot of personality (sometimes dog-like), and are also loved for their intelligence, gentleness and large size. They are also called the American Longhair and are impressive hunters.
**HAPPY UPDATE – AS OF 7/28 HOCUS HAS BEEN ADOPTED!!**
Since I’d love to possibly have one as part of my family (if we ever decide to get another cat) I thought I would find one to share (and try to resist wanting to adopt him myself). I found Hocus. Hocus is listed as a Maine Coon/DLH mix and he is small in size (he looks young to me).
Hocus is with Lost My Way Animal Shelter in Claremont, New Hampshire. He is a playful, loving and vocal cat who adores attention. He was very matted when he arrived at the shelter so had to be shaved down. Isn’t he a handsome guy? I bet he’ll be even more handsome when his fur grows back! Hocus is up to date on his shots and has been neutered. You can visit his Petfinder page here.
A little bit about the shelter: Lost My Way Animal Shelter was founded in 2012. Their mission is to reunite lost animals with their families, and to find forever homes for those that are homeless. They help all types of animals such as dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and even wildlife. If you would like to learn more or contact them you can visit their Facebook and Petfinder pages.
If you cannot adopt a cat this month, there are other things you can do to help. Petfinder has a great list of ideas, and you can share this post and the other posts below as well!
