Adopt Me! Shy Cat Mystery Could Show His True Colors to You

Adopt Me! Shy Cat Mystery Could Show His True Colors to You

Originally posted 06/06/2014 12:30PM

It's Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat month and in honor of the wonderful rescue cats out there, we're introducing you to pets-in-waiting all throughout June. Today, we'd like you to meet Mystery, a handsome boy living at the Harvest Hills Animal Shelter in Fryeburg, Maine.

Like his name implies, Mystery is an interesting cat. "The way he looks at you," says kennel technician Genie Blodgett, "he's not afraid but he'll shy away a bit. Trying to get to know him has been very difficult. He's very mysterious."

While some cats reveal their true colors almost instantly, it's definitely been slowgoing with this 4-year-old who's been at the shelter for almost two years. "When people come in they think he's beautiful, but he'll say, 'I'm not interested in you' and turn away. There are people he likes and some he doesn't like."

Meet Boots, a double-amputee miracle cat who figured out how to do just that.

Adopt Me! Juliette Wants to Be Your Purr-manent Office Mate

Adopt Me! Juliette Wants to Be Your Purr-manent Office Mate

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Juliette, a 3-year-old calico who is an office cat at the Upper Valley Humane Society in Enfield, New Hampshire.

Looking for those missing paperclips or rubber bands? Ask Juliette. It's highly likely that she's batted them under a desk somewhere. The cat has been at the shelter for nearly two years, and in that time she's explored every nook and cranny of the office she shares with office manager Michelle Laramie. Besides being a pro at swiping office supplies, Juliette loves to be involved in whatever tasks are at hand.

"She's usually sitting on whatever Michelle is working on, the payroll that she's trying to work on," says executive director Deborah Turcott. "She's quite adventurous. We had to put a screen up to keep her from escaping the room."

The dog who attacked a 4-year-old boy – which lead to a heroic encounter with a cat named Tara – has been euthanized.

Sources at an Bakersfield, California, animal shelter confirm that Scrappy died on Saturday, reports TMZ.

Meanwhile, the brave and stunning Tara has been thrust into the spotlight since the video of the vicious dog attack went viral earlier this month. Just last week, she threw the first pitch at a minor league baseball game (or so she tried) alongside the boy she saved, Jeremy Triantafilo.

Purr-fect is the best way to describe Craig Armstrong's unique mountain-climbing partner.

He adopted the stunning black feline named Millie from an animal shelter in Park City, Utah, and she is all he ever wanted in a sidekick.

"I go on a lot of weekend climbing adventures. I always figured when I have a pet friend, I'll take her with me," Armstrong tells Bored Panda. "It never seemed odd to me, just seems like something I'd do with my pet, take her places."
