Shelter workers met a person who was considering adopting a cat. The decision to adopt was influenced by an unusual criterion: the woman did not beat around the bush and asked for the least attractive cat living in the facility. The volunteers were wary at first, remaining cautious, and it was only after listening to the interviewee’s arguments that they changed their minds.
A cat lover decided to adopt an animal from a shelter. She made a condition
Adopting an animal must always be a responsible and thoughtful decision for the whole family, preceded by an examination of conscience. First of all, ask yourself a few questions: am I capable of taking care of the person I care for on all fours for the next, or sometimes even a dozen, years? Can I give up certain privileges like going on vacation, coming home late and sleeping until noon on weekends? In the event of illness or behavioral problems, will I do everything possible to provide the best possible care for my pet? If the answer is yes, it’s time to look for the fur baby of your dreams.
An entry appeared on the online forum Reddit about adopting a cat from a local animal shelter. The surprising story of adding an animal friend to the family has been shared by a mysterious user nicknamed ‘Fluffy Designer’. A woman set a goal of adopting an animal from a shelter and traveled to a local facility to do so. To the surprise of the volunteers, before starting to look around the cages and enclosures, she presented a necessary condition to finalize the adoption.
She asked the shelter which cat was least adoptable. She didn’t even think about the others
During a conversation with shelter staff, the woman asked which of all the cats in her care was least likely to be adopted. The choice fell on a black cat named Duke, who suffers from serious health problems. It turned out that the cat presented by the shelter employees suffers from the immunodeficiency virus (FIV), which attacks the immune system and significantly weakens the animal’s body. It is a virus transmitted by blood and unfortunately incurable. However, these aren’t all the health issues Duke is dealing with.
Black cats also suffer from anxiety disorders and pull out their hair as a result. This especially happens during medical examinations and visits to the veterinarian. There is also a statistical fact that black cats are much less likely to be adopted than their lighter colored counterparts. All of this made Duke the “least attractive” cat to adopt.
Disenchanting a black cat, i.e. do not court a murmur by color
The long list of cat ailments has not discouraged animal lovers. The young girl did not hesitate for a single moment and immediately decided to adopt an animal that would probably never leave the establishment. The girl took Duke home and surrounded him with love and care. As he says, right after the move, the cat calmed down a bit and stopped pulling his hair out.
Additionally, the woman points out that her new pet is incredibly cute and soft, and loves cuddles! She herself believes that she could not have found a better companion. It seems Duke has finally found a loving family and is in love with the animal he shares his home with. We are talking about a 15-year-old cat after a stroke.
The purpose of this story is to show that belief in superstitions is unfounded and to make people who are considering adopting a pet understand that it is irrational to think that a black cat brings bad luck. Cats with black fur are no different than cats of other colors and have just as much love to offer.
