Little Touches Make a Difference

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.


  1. That sure does make his eyes pop. I pray he gets a forever home soon.

  2. Wow! That really makes a difference!

  3. My Mom adopted me from an adoption drive once and I am gray! Love, Cody

  4. That's a good tip! We hope Azul finds his home soon.

  5. Azul is lovely. You know, that is "Blue" in English. He would fit in so nicely at our house if Dad would let us have another kitty. It breaks our heart that he had to be surrendered. We pray this gorgeous boy as a new home really soon. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
