Gorgeous new guy at the shelter....

I'll bet you thought I was going to talk about a new volunteer, huh?....not me, I'm too much in love with hubby and the cats to notice new humans much

This guy lost his people to death and the new owners (I hope the previous owners didn't entrust him to them) decided after two weeks they didn't want him. Look how beautiful he is. Supposedly a purebred Birman. I dunno, but he is gorgeous!

He is Stunning!! I bet he gets a lot of potential adopters looking at him!
Marcia I sure hope your instincts guide you and him to the Right Adopter or Adopters!! :p

Nah, I knew right away - crazy cat people just think alike lol. He surely is gorgeous! He shouldn't be in the shelter long at all.

My reaction was the same as Heather72754, actually. I love looking at cats, so I'm in the group of "crazy cat people" now too, lol.

That guy is so gorgeous I don't think he's going to have problems getting adopted soon either. How can you deny that face with those pretty blue eyes? But then again, I'm just a sucker for cats, so...yeah.

I DO want him, but with 6 at home already and a hubby who has put his foot down I just can't. There are only about 6 cats (10%) at the shelter and Petsmart that have been here longer than I have been there. We actually have a great turn over rate. It's been fun to see these guys go home quickly. I'm not worried about him, he's so gorgeous he'll find a new home fast. Dollars to donut there I someone there at the door when we open in an hour!!

What I don't want is for someone to adopt him then try to "rehome" for a $250 fee on Craigslist!! I'll be watching closely.

OMG, I can't even believe someone would do that - I mean, I believe it but it's just beyond my understanding to treat an animal that way.
