Imagine my surprise to find that this weeks' photo hunt is "Adopt A Less Adoptable Animal." Well, it just so happens my little friend Graham fits that category. Please meet Graham.
http://www.bayareahumanesociety.com/ shelter on August 14th as a "feral" kitten. Graham was turned over to the shelter by her first human, who rescued her from a barn. The huuman worked full time and Graham was alone all day. She admitted she did not have much extra time to spend with Graham, teaching her how to be a good kitten and playing with her. She gave Graham up because by the time she got home from work at night and had time to play with Graham, Graham was behaving like a wild kitten - biting scratching, etc. Keep in mind Graham had been alone all day and probably had excess energy to wear off not to mention lack of human contact.
I happen to live in the same city as Graham. So M has visited her at the shelter three times. The first time, she took Graham into a little room and played with her with a string and a ball. Graham behaved very well, even when M went to pick her up to return her to the shelter worker. She did not seem feral at all on that visit. See my blog post of September 15, 2010 to get details of how the 2nd and 3rd visits went. She was more aggressive but maybe had a reason to be.
This little girl will make someone a good pet, if they have the time and patience to work with her. The shelter does say they will not place her in a home with small children or other kitties because she can become easily over stimulated.
If you can provide a good home for Graham or know someone who can, please contact the Bay Area Humane Society shelter at: 920 469-3110 directly, and tell them you are interested in adopting Graham. You can also email them at email@example.com
Now if you live in Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, or Michigan, M said she might be willing to drive 300 to 400 miles to meet you somewhere to turn Graham over to you. But, first you have to make arrangements through the shelter for adoption and handle all the paper work and pay the adoption fee. We don't want transportation to be a big issue if you can provide a good, forever home for Graham. Now please, if you can adopt Graham, contact the shelter now. Then let M know by leaving a note on my blog or if you are on Twitter, DM @Mariodacat. We do have 3 animals/humans willing to run a relay to the states mentioned if transportation is an issue.

Note: Today's photos of Graham were taken from the Bay Area Humane Society's website. There are more photos of Graham taken by M on her visits posted in my September 15th blog post.
Now it's your turn to feature an animal that is considered less than the perfect animal for adoption. Then hop aboard the Photo Hunt.
