(even in it is a foster home) If there is one thing the whole, sad “Lucas affair” revealed it was that the guys at Pets on the Run have a lot of heart. For this reason I am very pleased to announce that while their beloved companion* may very well be gone forever, it didn’t stop these good fellas from opening up their store and their hearts to another wonderful feline in need of a good home. His name is Oreo and as you can see in the image to the right, he is rather found of rawhide sticks.
I have been told by Oreo’s new step-dad that he was not always the feisty, handsome, one year old meat-loving chap you see here. Apparently his owners were about to throw him on the streets when these guys got wind of it and took him in. It should also be noted that Oreo was also sporting a rather nasty cold and they have lovingly restored him back to good health. He has since shown his gratitude by meeting and greeting customers and providing a little in-store entertainment! Which brings me to the following footage I shot of this lad in action. Enjoy!
It is my understanding that Oreo will be up for adoption after he is neutered. I for one hope these guys elect to keep him. The Garden Spot of the Universe can never have too many shop cats!
*Who is missed by many, including one little girl named Lucia who made this heart-wrenchingly sweet sympathy card which hangs over this establishment’s front door.
I’m sorry Lucas got lost.
