Bogart's Success Story
Tuesday, 13 October 2009

We are very happy to share with you Bogart's success story.

 

Bogart is a gray tabby/Maine Coon mix who came to the shelter six months ago when he was found wandering on the streets in Irving. That was quite a feat since he is blind, born with no eyes. He immediately captured the attention and care of shelter cat volunteers. He was sweet with people and wanted to make friends and he navigated the room easily, finding his food, litter box and jumping on and off shelves and tables very sure of himself. He was also playful and would gnaw at a backpack's strips with great pleasure. He knew people by their sound and greeted them by rubbing against their legs.

 

However, he was frustrated to be confined to sickbay, and sometimes he would attack people that made sudden approaches towards him. He also dominated the other cats, making up for his lack of sight with aggressiveness. He was adopted after one month and immediately returned to the shelter after he injured the arm of his adopter, and then he spent three more months in sickbay. In a kill shelter he would not have been given much time- with his special needs, he was the walking definition of unadoptable. But the volunteers of Dog & Kitty City hoped to find him a right place one day. He was not wild or out of control; he was simply not comfortable there.

 

And then, about a month ago, Bogart found a foster home, which is where the success part comes in. Read the whole story here.
