This is my absolute favorite cat at the shelter. I truly love him. I call him L’amour because that is exactly what he is, a love. He has to be the sweetest cats at the shelter. He only wants to next to you and I don’t think he could ever tire of getting his ears scratched or head rubbed. He is very, very easy-going. L’amour doesn’t make a fuss, watching silently as you walk away. I can only imagine what he must feel. His heart growing a little sadder, only growing  brighter when you come back around. L’amour is a wonderful, calm, peaceful, humble, and extremely loving cat. He has been vaccinated and combo tested negative.

    What a precious boy. I hope that someone snatches him up very quickly and takes him home.

  2. Wow, a southern shelter with a kill rate of only 32%. They must be doing a lot of things right. I want to thank them for trying so hard and hope they are aiming to become no-kill with a save rate of 90% or higher.

    • I volunteer at the Coweta shelter and they are moving in the right direction. Everyone there cares about the animals and I hope we/the shelter, as a community, keep implementing policies that improve the adoption/rescue numbers, public awareness, and the lives of the animals.

      Thank you for your comment! It’s not often we (the shelter)hear statements like that.

  3. Hi,

    I wanted to let everyone know that L’Amour was rescued today and is going to live out his life on farm in Alabama. He will want for nothing.
