...and here's Ginger!

I’m so happy to report that this brother and sister pair were adopted last week! Some lucky person took advantage of the discount when adopting two black cats.

You may have to be of a certain age to recognize their names…Gilligan and his sister, Ginger were returned from placement. They were both adopted as young kittens, then returned to the shelter.

Bevis looks really bored with shelter life.

Bevis is still available, though!

Animal Protectors of Allegheny Valley is a small no-kill shelter in New Kensington, north of Pittsburgh.

But small doesn’t mean they aren’t full of cats during kitten season. While they’ve got creative special deals on feline adoptions and fosters all the time, they’ve got two special offers for Adopt a Cat Month.

At left, meet Bevis, domestic short hair, black male, neutered adult, “Bevis came to the shelter with a nasty infection (let’s just say it was under his tail). All healed now and looking good, this black cat is about as sweet and loving as you could want. Come in and meet Bevis.”

  • And especially that they were adopted together! I really don’t understand why black cats are difficult to adopt out–black dogs too. I’m just glad this small shelter with limited hours in a pretty depressed area is this fortunate in finding good homes for any cat, let alone the black ones!

  • That is just terrific that two more cats have a home. We personally love black cats. The two that live here are terrific cats. The one we call Black is quite the character. He loves to play and have fun in general. That is really good news.

    what wonderful news! sweet things! I don’t understand why someone would think a black cat isn’t as lovely as a non-black cat 🙁 So happy they got adopted! 🙂 Thanks for the GOOD news!
