Imagine being tossed into a dumpster, and being too little to climb out! Think of the panic ... and the smell. Sadly, this is what happened to Brazil when he was only a kitten. Thank goodness a man found him and brought him over to Best Friends. Who would throw a precious little kitten in the garbage? Brazil arrived at the sanctuary in 2004, when he was about five months old. He's a bit of a character. He and four other black cats all hang out together. (Did they choose each other because they look alike?) They're very confident, strutting around as the self-styled 'cool cats' of their room. With Brazil's sleek black coat, chiseled cheeks and golden eyes, he has a way of looking like a panther on the prowl.
He may have started life in a dumpster, but now Best Friends is his territory - and being the cool cat of the sanctuary makes him feel important. He's a little shy around people sometimes, but he'll be your friend if you're patient. And thanks to you, his Best Friend, he's enjoying a full life at a place where he'll never be treated like garbage again.
