'Mini-Panthers' Get New Homes
At least four of the five black cats up for adoption last Saturday in Barrington have found new homes.
Some “mini-panthers” have new Barrington homes to prowl around and purr in.
At least four black cats were adopted at the adoption drive held by Barrington Animal Control Office Patricia Watson last Saturday at the Pumpkin Junction Fair at St. John’s Episcopal Church. A fifth adoption appeared to be pending by mid-afternoon.
Watson started the day with five black cats , which tend to be more difficult to adopt this time of year. She was very pleased with the response.
Watson said the cats came from a pair of litters found last summer. They have had good homes at the Warren Animal Shelter ever since. But nothing beats a great home, she said.
Black cats are not “mini-panthers,” of course, said Watson. But she thought the name might help to draw attention to the cats. It seemed to work.
“People stepped up,” she said.
All of the cats went to good homes in Barrington, she said.
“We didn’t let these cats go to just anybody,” Watson said.
