SPCA of Hancock County Pet of the Week Is Like A Miniature Lion
Long-haired Bam Bam is like a miniature lion, and if he were the King of the Forest every animal at the SPCA of Hancock County would have a forever home.
His gorgeous golden-fawn coat and tiny curled ears are enough to make the resemblance complete, but then add to that the fact he’s a big boy at more than 12 pounds, and Bam Bam is uniquely stunning.
There’s a sadness to his yellow-green eyes, though - Bam Bam has a troubled history where people weren’t always kind to him, and he still needs a gentle and loving companion to help him ease out of his shell.
He is 10 years old and is FIV positive, which simply means he needs a little extra care when it comes to kitty colds and such, and he should be kept indoors only. Bam Bam is extremely sweet and gentle despite his rough start, but the folks at the SPCA of Hancock County think he would be happiest in a home with older, respectful children. While he does not seem to like dogs much, he may be able to coexist with another mellow cat.
Bam Bam would love to start meeting people so he can learn about our good side, and hopefully find his forever family soon. We hope that you have an interest in Bam Bam and hope that you'll make an appointment to meet with him soon!
