Volunteer Carrie tells us, “Cool cat is a term for a reason, and folks – at the shelter right now there is a cat who fits the term to a T. That cat is Dallas, a very handsome, plump young tuxedo. He arrived a little uncertain what had happened to him or why, copped a bit of attitude for a while. Personally, that was him playing a little poker. You never show your hand, after all, especially when you’re not sure what hand the other players have yet. Once he figured out the shelter crew were good people, he let it slip that behind the fearful exterior lay a truly wonderful, laid back, chill dude. Some might even say he is a righteous dude. 😉
Dallas has a pretty typical tuxedo jacket, but his facial markings are quite individual, with a little black swoosh coming down across his nose. Like most cats with dark coloration, his eyes really pop as he studies you and deems you worthy of giving him plenty of head scritches and pets. But what makes him the coolest of cats is the way he saunters about the room like an absolute king. His movements are quite deliberate and measured, filled with gravitas.
Dallas knows how cool he is and wants everyone to know it. When his people meet him, there’s no doubt they will fold their hand immediately and let him win their hearts. And, really, that’s no loss at all.”
Pet meet and greets are by appointment only, so if you’d like to meet him, submit an application in advance by going to the shelter’s Adopting a Pet page at https://www.co.clatsop.or.us/animalcontrol/page/adopting-pet. Scroll to the bottom of the page for the application. Be sure to date it next to the signature line (applications are reviewed in the order they are received) and put the name of the animal you are interested in at the top. You can then save the application to your computer and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or deliver it directly to the shelter. Application forms are also available on the front door of the shelter and can be filled out and turned in on the spot. A shelter staff member will review the app and call you to set up an appointment.
