It is estimated that more than 30% of homeless animals in shelters have black fur. It seems that the darkest individuals become invisible to the eyes of people deciding to adopt an animal, even if they are distinguished by a friendly character. Many clues suggested that the fate of Finn, the black cat, was already sealed. Luckily, this cat managed to break the wrong streak.
He was wild, sick and didn’t stand out from the crowd of homeless animals
Animal shelters are usually packed. Practically all units of this type are faced, at least from time to time, with the problem of the number of animals in need. Some animals living in shelters have more bad luck than others. Some of the creatures that await loving guardians must exercise great patience. Black cats and dogs are in an extremely difficult situation, as the hero of this story discovered to his cost.
Finn is an adult black cat. To make matters worse, he ended up in a rundown animal shelter. He had to be hospitalized and was wild. Everything indicated that he would not quickly find someone who would love him. At first glance, nothing about him caught the eye of a potential tutor.
Her curse was her appearance
Finn was in a terrible situation. In addition to a distrust of people and a complicated medical history, he had a problem related to… the color of the coat.
You can easily find a black cat in almost any shelter. And as a rule, there are at least a few of them. Often, cats with uniform, dark coats appear to have been cloned. Unfortunately, that doesn’t work in their favor. Very few people who decide to adopt choose a black cat. Most people wish they had a pet with a bit more original color under their roof. Also, some people believe that black cats bring bad luck.
He proved that black cats are not bad luck
Luckily, Finn managed to deceive fate. Despite a number of characteristics that indicated no one would be interested in him, he quickly found someone who decided to give him a loving home. A young woman who visited the shelter where the black tom lived had no doubts. As soon as she saw Finn, she knew he would be her new pet.
“When I first met him, I was warned that he was incredibly shy and probably wouldn’t come near me,” Finn’s babysitter recalled.
The woman was shocked by the behavior of the chosen animal. It turned out that from the first meeting with his new babysitter, he felt comfortable with her. He proved it in the sweetest way in the world. He curled up on his knees and fell asleep. Since then, she looks at her owner with love in her eyes.
– He has shown many signs of separation anxiety and we are still working on it. But he really came out of his shell. He is a very affectionate and cheerful cat. He even plays fetch! He is now friendly and discovers new things with more confidence. It’s not the same cat that went to the shelter in 2021 – confirms the satisfied babysitter.
