(ADOPTED!) ATL Hypnotized by Wide-Eyed Black Beauty Tater Tot.  Available for Private Consultations.

“Look into my eyes…look deep into my eyes….” this tiny kitten seems to be imploring you.  And it’s true: the first thing you notice about Tater Tot, besides his gorgeous fur, is his arresting yellow-green eyes. Tater Tot got his name because when he was rescued as a tiny kitten, he was the shape of…and not much bigger than…a tater tot!  He’s grown into a black-haired beauty with luminous yellow-green eyes and a sparkly coat that has a silvery undersheen.  Tater Tot lives at the PetSmart permanent adoption center off of Howell Mill and I-75 with his brother, French Fry. This four-month old will have medium length feather-fine black fur.  He has a luxurious swishy black tail, black nose, and mixed black and white whiskers..and fuzzy ear tufts that he will consent to have rubbed.  Tater Tot is shyer than his brother, French Fry, but we are confident that he will come out of his shell once he’s placed in his forever home.  When he lived with his foster mother, he had learned to walk up her legs and chest leaving a path of kitten biscuits.  His favorite thing to do is curl up in a patch of sunshine, and watch the world go by.  If Tater likes you (and he likes everybody, really, he just takes his time), you’ll be rewarded with his steady purr. Now is the perfect time to adopt French Fry and Tater Tot, because they are at the ideal age to bond closely to a human family, and are still young enough to let you enjoy all their kitten innocence and loveliness.  Like all SNAP kittens, they are neutered, up to date on tests and vaccinations, and microchipped.  We are glad to answer any questions you might have and welcome your online adoption applications. Tater Tot and French Fry live at the Howell Mill adoption center (I-75 & Howell Mill), so stop by and see them! PS:  Tater said to tell you that he’s waiting to meet...

ADOPTED! Hanging with Adoptable SNAP Kitties on a Perfect Atlanta Autumn Day

Today was a gorgeous autumn day here in Atlanta, and it seemed like the whole town was out and about – including our SNAP foster parents who brought their SNAP wards to PetSmart to meet prospective homes. Oliver and Olivia are a tightly bonded male/female pair of siblings.  As you can see, Oliver is as black as night while Olivia is a chocolate point Siamese.  Our volunteers call them “Oriental twins” because they both have beautiful tilted eyes, well-sculpted faces with distinctive profiles, and delicate limbs.  Adopting these two would adding a piece of living piece of artwork to your home. Olivia’s eyes are pale blue, and Oliver, who we call the Black Pearl because he is incredibly soft – and rare – has lovely green eyes.  Oliver and Olivia must be adopted as a set. Today was the first day at PetSmart for Girlie and her two children, Angel and Andy.  They were trapped at the Red Lobster in Stone Mountain, and are being fostered by a SNAP volunteer.  They are all a little nervous at the attention, but show promising signs of becoming used to human handling.  Andy is a handsome orange male, and was very laid back (as evidenced by his mother, Girlie, using him as a bed most of the afternoon).  Angel is fluffy and will grow into a gorgeous multicolored long-haired love bug. Carl is a handsome, easy to love all-black male. He’s very affectionate and loves to sleep with his foster mother and foster cat friend Pringles every night.  Carl is about a year old, and is the last of his siblings to be adopted.  Carl and his siblings were rescued from an apartment complex when they were just a few days old, where they were found abandoned in a breezeway in a locked pet carrier.  Carl has come a long way since then, and is waiting to meet his forever family. Oscar just arrived into SNAP’s care.  Oscar was rescued by a loving family and well-taken care of; you can tell by how nicely he adjusted to strangers handling him and how comfortable he is with being petted and held.  Unfortunately, the family’s landlord changed their pet policies and they were not able to afford the exorbitant deposit and monthly charge, so they reluctantly asked us to find him a home.  Oscar met lots of nice people looking for beautiful kitties just like him today! Tiny Rae, who is our cover girl on the SNAP web site this week, is available for adoption, too.  Rae has wide-set gentle eyes, loves to play with her furry mouse and dunk it in her water bowl, and adores attention.  Rae was rescued from a trailer park where SNAP maintains a relationship with the caregivers.  This gentle buff kitten is active and curious, and pets your cheek with her paw if you look away for too long when she wants to play! A handsome foursome – Bobby, Pammy, Pip, and Paula – kept us entertained at PetSmart by lining up in perfect symmetry and watching the world go by.  These lovely siblings all have distinctive personalities and are waiting patiently to meet their forever family.  They have all been fostered together, and are very friendly, and adore being around humans. Even though he’s still a kitten, Andy is chillaxed and happy to watch what happens next. Andy and his sibling Angel and mother Girlie were rescued from a Red Lobster. Pretty Angel! Posing for the camera her first day at PetSmart. Angel was a little nervous today, but will grow into a striking cat. She is...
