Classic orange tabby with a light champagne coloration and beautiful amber eyes. He is very short, soft and silky fur. His little pink nose tops it all off perfectly!
Oh my goodness, it's hard to know where to start in describing a cat as wonderful as Bumper (also known as "Bumps"). He is a delicious caramel candy in cat form and melts in your arms when you pick him up. He was named for his adorable habit of doing "head bumps" with his humans. Bumps also does that "love eyes" thing that cats do when he will gaze adoringly at you and purr up a storm. He is a clean little cat and completely litterbox trained, also grooming himself neatly. Bumper gets along well with his foster brother Sir Chirps-a-lot. (If you are looking for a lovely PAIR that already get along well, please consider Bumps and Chirps! However they can be adopted separately.) Bumps would be a good buddy for another friendly cat with the proper introductions (let IAR help you with cat introductions--we are really experienced in it!) Bumps' foster Mom says he is the perfect combination of being really friendly without being too needy, which is GREAT! Bumps is a treasure of a cat that will grow old with you and be your lifelong friend forever. Only the best homes should apply for Bumps!
Bumper was abandoned at a rural NC county high-kill shelter by his owner, who didn't want the expense of a cat now that he was no longer a tiny kitten. Nice, eh? This amazing cat would most likely have been euthanized within a few days of our pulling him, as that particular shelter has a 99% euthanasia rate for cats.
