Adopt Ebony. Sandy Geddy


Some shelter cats draw attention to themselves by calling to visitors with a loud meow. Others will pace back and forth until they are noticed. Ebony has another devise to get someone to pay attention. He simply stands very still at the front of his kennel and draws people in with his beautiful, big eyes.

Once he has gained the attention of a visitor it is very easy for him to make friends. He’s a social cat with the sweetest, little voice.

Ebony is just over a year old. It won’t take much to make him feel like he is part of the family. Just a little attention and someone to listen to his stories and he’ll be a happy feline.
