Our Brit Female is Named Velvet
by Dan Warner
I began volunteering November 08 at a local animal shelter and a major part of the duties includes socializing the cats. Velvet had been there since October. As the months went by I really fell in love with Velvet because of her sweet nature, and her tendency to rub my nose while I held her. My wife and I were reluctant to adopt again as we are getting to the sunset years and hate to leave a cat behind. I hoped someone would adopt Velvet, but as the months went by no one was interested, and a black cat in a cage does not show well.
Finally as the spring crop of kittens overloaded the facility I knew that Velvet would have to go soon to make room for the kittens. I talked with my wife and we decided that we could not let such a sweet gentle girl go.
So we have had Velvet for 3 weeks and she is as lovable a cat as we have ever had, and we’ve had some good ones. She is faithful to use her scratching post and litter pan, finicky about food (she gets Iams because it’s one of the best) loves to play with toys (Da Bird is her favorite).
Can’t say enough about these Brits. My first choice.
