SNAP first met Salt when, along with dozens of other cats, he was discovered behind a Snellville, GA, bowling alley, dumped and left to fend for himself. Atlanta rescue groups and individuals banded together to help the “bowling alley kitties” as they quickly became known. This sweet-tempered black and white boy, Salt, made his way to SNAP’s care along with kitties Sugar and Pepper. SNAP is thrilled that Pepper has been adopted, but Sugar and Salt are still looking for homes. And no home is complete without plenty of salt…and sugar to sweeten the day!
Salt has been living in a foster home with other kitties while SNAP made sure that he was in good health and ready to find his forever home, and we’re happy to report that Salt is ready to conquer the world! You can see from the pictures that he’s a sweet boy, curious and inquisitive, and always willing to lay his head in your hand for an ear scratch. Salt is good-natured, and likes hanging out with other cats, so he could join an already existing cat family. He can be a little shy – in these pictures he was at a noisy PetSmart – but copes well with change, and remained calm with all the movement around him during his photo session. His foster mother says that he is extremely affectionate and seeks out human company, and likes attention. Salt hasn’t lived with dogs, so we can’t vouch for how he would do, but in general he is non-aggressive and very laid back both with people and other animals.
Salt has a pink pink nose that stands out against his white muzzle and white whisker. His deep green eyes are “guylined” in black fur. You can see that Salt has a black head mask with black ears, a mostly black tail, and black spots on his coat. His left and paws are white, with pretty pink paw pads and he likes to wrap his tail around himself when he curls up and buries his nose in his paws. Who can resist a kitty who buries his nose behind his paws? SNAP certainly can’t.
We’d love to introduce you to Salt to see if he’s a match for your family. He is neutered, in good health, up to date on shots and vaccinations, and microchipped. Salt will do best in a home where there’s activity and interaction, because at nearly a year old, he still has some of a kitten’s heart in him. In fact, he’d love to be adopted with his fellow bowling alley alumni friend, sweet Sugar. You can apply to adopt any SNAP animal online.
Life is better with a little Salt, wouldn’t you agree?
