Cat of the Week: Cordel in Washington, DC

Each week in this space, we feature a senior cat in need of adoption or sponsorship. Please remember all the older cats in shelters. They make great companions, and unlike kittens, they (probably) won’t climb the curtains! Adopt a senior cat, and help him or her enjoy the best years of their life.

Gotcha, bird toy!

If this week’s cat looks familiar, that’s because we just featured him a few weeks ago. This guy’s name is Cordel, and he recently got placed in a foster home through the Washington Humane Society. Cordel’s foster mom has shared some information on him so you can get to know him a little better and find out what a great cat he truly is.

Just to remind you, Cordel is 8 years old, which means he is all grown up but you and he could share many wonderful years together. He was found on the streets, so nothing is really known about his past, but his foster mom reports that he loves attention. He loves to be petted and to rub himself against somebody. He’s not into sitting on laps though. When he curls up, his floofy tail covers his face, which I think is an ingenious way to keep the sun out of his eyes.

Cordel also likes to play…Wait…I have to make an editorial adjustment…Cordel loves to play. His Favorite Thing is the bird toy that he can chase and jump after. So much fun! His foster mom reports that he has a lot of energy and sometimes goes skidding around at top speed. But he’s also a real chill dude who doesn’t get his fur ruffled too easily. With all this energy and chill attitude, he might be a good fit for a family with children. He also likes to look out the window, where he seems really interested in all the sounds outside.

Can’t adopt but still want to help? Look into sponsoring an animal in the shelter or in foster care. Other donations also make a big difference in the lives of shelter pets!
