Shelter Cats, Shelter Kittens

Ipanema and Elmer


Now that I have your attention…
My name is Ipanema, and I’m waiting in Cat Room #8 for my forever family to come find me. But I really want you to meet my roommate Elmer.


Elmer has been at PAWS for three years.
You know that silly myth about black cats being bad luck? While there’s certainly no truth to it, many black cats have the misfortune to be ignored in shelters by potential adopters.


Elmer is nine years old, friendly and laid back. He gets along very well with other cats.


Come meet handsome house panther Elmer at PAWS.

Here’s Elmer’s page on Petfinders.

You are both gorgeous and we can see your awesome personalities showing through. Handsome Elmer, you are one handsome boy! We’ve always thought of black cats as lucky, unlike some people, and we’ll be purring hard that your lucky forever family finds you very soon!

Poor handsome Elmer, I wish I could go adopt you. That is so sad that he has been there for 3 years.
