The Shelter Pet Project




Savannah Gibson


Paden City, West Virginia


Marshall County Animal Shelter

Why Iggy is so special:

Iggy (who's name was Carson at the shelter) was the only one of his litter that had not been adopted. When we came to visit the shelter, intent on adopting orange kittens, the first kitten we noticed was Iggy who was in a cage with another kitten family. While they all slept and ate, he pranced at the front of the pen trying to get our attention. He was scruffy and black and not at all what we had in mind. I asked to hold him and immediately fell in love with him. He is the sweetest boy. My love!

If your pet could talk, what would he or she tell us about you?:

My mommy spoils me and my sisters and can't resist my charm. I know just want to do and "say" to get her to give me treats, belly rubs (on the counter where I'm not allowed), and sometimes get to try her human treats. She loves to snuggle with me at night and my new fun game is to comb her hair with my claw while she sleeps!
