We all need a hero, and pretty cats, especially street cats, are no exception. Enter 5-year-old Shon Griffin from Philadelphia. “We call him Catman,” his aunt Kris Papiernik told ABC news.
Aunty Kris and her fiancée have been involved in cat rescues and fostering for many years, and had recently taken to looking after a local group they named the Kolony Kats.
One pretty cat, Bug, would just not cooperate when it came to getting shots and being neutered…
“Nothing we tried worked,” Aunty Kris said. However, she had noticed that her nephew Shon had formed an instant bond with the pretty cats so she let him help out. “The cats took to him right away. Bug came right over to Shon, rubbed against his legs, and allowed him to pet him.”
From that day on, Shon was Catman. He regularly visits his aunt and the Kat Kolony, dressed in his favorite superhero outfit, feeding and petting the pretty cats and helping solve any problems that might arise.
The cats are drawn to him, even the most unfriendly ones are unable to resist his charms. “He’d scratch their bellies and scratch their heads…
It was astounding to see these pretty cats who wouldn’t permit us to contact them however quickly took to him. He should have this otherworldly impact that the cats can get,”.
if you get yourself alone in the city of Philly, cool, hungry, and in the warmth with bugs in your hide, who are ya going to call? Believe it or not, Catman!
Winter has shown up sooner than anticipated for the current year! The cool spell that has been moving through a few districts of Quebec for quite a long time has made life harder for the homeless cats.
So it’s imperative to consider our four-legged companions. While the majority of them have a home, others need to get by outside.
I addressed basic entitlements extremist Marie-Noel Gingras, maker of the splendid blog Sans Cruelties. She gave me a few hints to help the wanderer pretty cats throughout the colder time of year!…
1. BUILD A SHELTER FOR THE PREETY CATS
It is very easy to build a small shelter for cats who will need it on colder nights. It costs almost nothing and it can save many lives. It is ideally installed in a place that is not very busy and where the shelter will not be buried under the snow.
2. LEAVE FOOD AND WATER IN DIFFERENT PLACES NEAR OUR HOME
You can leave food and water on your balcony for pretty cats with empty stomachs. On very cold days, make sure the water does not freeze.
There are even heated bowls for those who can afford to spoil the stray pretty cats in their neighborhood! It is very important not to give leftover food to your pets. As Marie-Noel points out, there may be a risk of contamination and disease.
3. IN MONTREAL, YOU CAN PARTICIPATE IN THE CSRM PROGRAM
It is a program to counter the problem of feline overpopulation in cities.
It can make a real difference! If you want to get involved in your community and advocate for the good of animals, visit the SPCA website to find out…
4. OPEN YOUR HOME IN CASE OF EMERGENCY
If you see an animal that is really in trouble, you can take it home temporarily. Marie-Noel points out, however, that it is very important to keep it in an isolated room, especially if you have other animals at home so that it does not contaminate them.
If the animal in question is in distress, we should immediately contact our local shelter to ask for help.
