Feline Ambassador: Slippers
Urban Dog and Onpets Giveaway Winner
Urban Dog’s second Feline Ambassador is this gorgeous baby: Slippers.
Slippers’ parents told us: “Slippers was posted on Petfinder in 2002 by her foster mother, Alice, who had rescued Slippers, her sister, and her mom from the local kill shelter. They all had colds and Alice nursed them back to health and posted them for adoption on the site. I made an appointment with Alice and was interviewed to be Slippers’ new mom. I had previously adopted Flip in 1999 from the Connecticut Humane Society and Flip and she welcomed Slippers into our home. They spent twelve years together until Flip died and we both miss her terribly.”
She continued: “Slippers is eager, curious, loyal, adorable, bold and always hungry. She is always looking for something to “get into” or go under like a blanket or her heated pet bed. Naps are her favorite past time. Slippers’ most quirky characteristic is that she likes to chew on my hair. If we are watching TV on the couch together, she always gets behind me and starts licking and chewing on my hair. Slippers also has the best whiskers of any cat I know.”
When asked about the importance of rescuing, Slippers’ mom told us “Rescue was the only way to go for me. I especially wanted to look for a cat or kitten who came from a kill shelter and give her a new lease on life.” Well, it looks to us like Slippers has landed on her feet!
