"Oh, hi there! My name is Ebony, and I probably don't need to tell you how I earned my name. But what you can't tell from my pictures is what a friendly, snuggly guy I am. I love everybody I meet!"
"When you come to visit me at the shelter (you are coming, right?) you just may find me on greeter patrol, welcoming all the visitors. Or I may be on the computer "helping" the staff do their work. You see, I just love hanging out with people SO much. Everyone who visits says what a super cool and friendly dude I am.
I may be a big guy, but I'm definitely still a kitten at heart and just want to be in your lap or cozied up next to you in bed. When it's lap time and you get going with the scritches.....watch out! It's been said my purr motor is so loud you may need ear protection! I'm really smart too! I was the star pupil in a training class here at the shelter."
"I recently spent some time with a foster family. My foster mom loves me soooooo much (she says I'm her boyfriend) and she desperately wanted to make me a permanent part of her family, but it just wasn't meant to be. You see, there were already some other kitties there and I'm just NOT willing to share my human(s). I want to be with you all the time and I don't want anyone getting in my way.
So, besides the no-other-felines thing, the only thing you need to know about me is that I have to follow a specific diet. I've had a history of digestion issues and they're finally all resolved now! Whew! It's no big deal.....I just need to eat a controlled amount of a specific food and only limited treats. The staff here can tell you all the details about that. I've already lost some weight on this diet and as you can probably see, that's not a bad thing!
I really don't understand why I'm still here at the shelter. My soft, shiny black coat together with my emerald green eyes makes me quite the looker, or so I am told. I guess my perfect family just hasn't made it down here yet. Could it be you? Won't you come down and meet me today! I can't wait to be part of a family again....
Ebony has been waiting FAR too long for his forever family. Let's get this handsome guys adopted, what say?
