You humans can be silly sometimes. One example is how some of you are reluctant to adopt black cats. I do not know why this is true. I think that house panthers are great additions to the right home. But for some reason, there are many humans who do not want a black cat.
One cat rescue group in Melbourne, Australia, addressed this situation with humor. They want to get a feline named Mr. Biggles adopted, and they decided to use a humorous biography of this feline to do it.
They described this house panther as “an utter, utter, utter bastard” who is also a dictator and who will not accept not getting his way. They continued by saying “Mr. Biggles is a despot and dictator, he will let you know he is not happy, which is often because things are often just not up to his high standards. Mr Biggles likes his cuddles on his terms, and will sit in your lap when he decides it’s time. If the stroking is not up to his standards, he will nip you.”
Why did Cats of Melbourne do this? Because they decided that Mr. Biggles wasn’t for everyone. He needs a certain type of human to take him in, and the cat rescue group wants to make sure Mr. Biggles goes to a home with that kind of human.
Now, do not think that Mr. Biggles is not enjoying himself. His foster human says that he’s doing well, but that he needs a home of his own. And this human decided that it would be best to use humor to get his point across.
The profile for Mr. Biggles quickly rocketed to the most shared profile for Cats of Melbourne. However, despite all the sharing, he still needs a furever home. Hopefully, it does and Mr. Biggles goes home soon. And hopefully, you humans will realize that black cats are not bad luck, too!
