Pearl: Mama volunteered at the shelter today. She met a really cool cat named Azul.
Handsome boy isn't he? Unfortunately, he was easy to overlook. He is in a bottom kennel and his bedding was gray. He blended in. There was an easy fix!
Mama gave him a yellow blanket. Doesn't it make his eyes pop? Now, surely he will be noticed and adopted! Most people don't realize that the color of bedding matters, but it can be the difference of attracting an adopter's attention and fading in the background.
Mama didn't remove the gray blanket. It actually wasn't a blanket at all. It was a coat. Azul brought with him from his previous home. His family couldn't afford him so they had to surrender him to the shelter. It is important for cat's to have things with their scent. It can make the time at the shelter less stressful.
You can learn more about Azul here. He is available for adoption at Great Plains SPCA Merriam Campus.
