Sunday Selfies: Venus

BREAKING NEWS: Enny, the very first FCHS kitty that we profiled, was adopted this week!

Hey everybody, Truffles at the keyboard! I'm using the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop (hosted by The Cat on My Head) as a way to showcase some of the kitties waiting for their forever homes at my Alma Mater, Franklin County Humane Society in St. Albans, Vermont, and then sharing it with the Tuesday's Tails Blog Hop as well. Today's feature is quite special, because I actually know Venus. We were at FCHS together. The good news is we got to chat and catch up. The bad news is that I've been out of the shelter for 14 months now, and she's still waiting for her forever home. 

Truffles: Long time no see, Venus! I'm so happy to be spotlighting you today on my blog!

Venus: Hey Snickers, how's life treating you in the outside world?

Truffles: Actually, my name isn't Snickers anymore. When my Mommy adopted me she changed my name to Truffles. Life is absolutely wonderful. I couldn't be happier in my forever home, and I'm really happy to be featuring some of my friends at FCHS to try and help them get adopted as well.

Venus: You're really lucky you were adopted so quickly, Truffles. I've been waiting for almost two years now.

Truffles: I know. I was only there for about a month. Why don't you tell us a little about yourself?

Venus: Well, I came here to the shelter as a stray. I had been on my own for quite awhile and was pretty rough looking. Because of really bad flea allergies I had lost most of my fur! Luckily it has grown back but it's a bit thin on my back near my tail. I have also been declawed.

Truffles: Ouch! Don't people know how much that hurts?

Venus: Tell me about it. They should try cutting their fingers off at the knuckle and see how it feels. I don't know how I survived on the streets for as long as I did. Anyways, I'm a black domestic short-hair & Siamese mix. I'm cute and sassy and when one of the staff members here at the shelter brought me home a few times she said I was really friendly. My Petfinder profile can be found here for anyone who might like to sponsor or adopt me!

Truffles: Well I can attest that you are one cool kitty and I just know there is somebody out there waiting to snap you up. Hopefully they'll read this and come down to the shelter to meet you.

Venus: I have one more favor to ask if I may. When I arrived at the shelter the nice people here took a video of me. I don't look my best but it shows how fun and playful I am. Would you mind posting it?

Truffles: Of course we will! Here it is:

Oh Venus! You are so beautiful! I bet you will find a furever home soon! Don't Shelters not adopt out black cats around Halloween as a safety precaution? I bet you will find your furever home right after!
