Our Astro Kitty #AdorableAdoptable this month is an Aries Cat and he’s available today for a low adoption fee of $24.00!
We’re always connecting with cat lovers everywhere. A recent favorite way is to direct message on Instagram. That’s how I connected with Christine, a volunteer at The Peter Zippi Fund is no-kill, volunteer based cat shelter in Hermosa Beach, Ca. and saving lives since 1977. When I found out a dashing panther named Dasher was an Aries, with the same birthday as my hubby, I had to make him our #adorableadoptable Astro Cat of the Month. Christine said, ” We have his approximate birthdate as 3/28/2015. We rescued him and several others from a high kill shelter on 12/7/2015, so close to Christmas, we chose to use reindeer names.
We call him “confident” and “spunky” because he doesn’t shy away from anyone… animal or human. He can be a handful for some of our more mellow cats in the shelter so he’s become the “office cat”, sharing space with a Calico girl who doesn’t seem to mind his energy level. We think he’s a lot of fun! He’s earned several nicknames including “Mr. Curiosity” because he regularly jumps into drawers, boxes, cabinets, closets… you name it, if the opportunity presents itself he will take it. We are based out of VCA Coast Animal Hospital in Hermosa Beach. He lives up to his name, Dasher, by escaping the office at least once a week into the break room and sometimes up into the storage loft which may have encouraged his latest stunt… getting up on the lights and rafters in our office. ”
I couldn’t resist whipping up some adoption PSA graphics. If you know a shelter who needs some let me know and I might make design one for free! Since we’re doing a book to promote black cat adoption, we’re especially focused on black cats. This one is a generic one I can easily adapt to another shelter and is not Dasher.
Dasher displays his adventurous Aries purrsonality to a T in his online profile. To learn all about the Aries cat, check out our astro-cat profile ARIES CAT
The PZF folks found me at the City shelter, where I had been turned in as a stray cat. I did everything I could to get them to notice me from my cage, and it worked! My glossy black fur and demands for attention won their hearts in a second.
“Dasher” is a good name for me, because I love to dash. I stood right up to the PZF “test dog”, and will have no problem with a dog in my new family. Because I am a rowdy “teenage” boy, and will try to push other boy cats around, introductions to existing cats in a home will need to be made slowly. I will need a very active home with lots of play, and also lots of love from the people. My PZF volunteer pals think I will settle down nicely in a home – my year of reckless youth is fun, but cuddling is better!
