This guy really, really needs a home, as after 20 years he is currently wondering where  he is and why.

Sometimes animal rescue makes your heartbreak, like when Blackie’s humans lost their home and made the incredibly hard choice of bringing their baby boy to the SPCA of Hancock County, so he could still have comforts.

Blackie is a 20-year-old Domestic Shorthair, as dark as a moonless night with gorgeous green jade orbs for eyes. His pupils are almost always dilated, making like an owl cat.

Overall, Blackie is in great health for his age, especially since the staff there started treating his hyperthyroidism. Dogs, cats, and kids don’t seem to faze him much, and the quickest way to his heart is through catnip.

But one thing to know is Blackie has quite a presence; he doesn’t just meow, he shrieks. You might mistake him for an angry cat until you realize he’s just saying hello.

He’s a cool cat that would love to chill at someone’s house and add some unique character to any home. Could that home be yours?

Make an appointment to meet the Blackie as soon as you can, he would appreciate it!
