Feral Kitten Finds An Unlikely Job Working At Dog Shelter

They say that the opposite of love is indifference, not hatred. Indifference isn’t simply a lack of empathy for a cat named Colin Feral; it’s a job requirement.

One of the most popular things potential adopters ask at Moa Point Dog Shelter in Wellington, New Zealand, is whether the dogs at the shelter are comfortable near cats. Staff at the shelter understood that in order to answer this issue, they required a laid-back cat who didn’t mind meeting a lot of dogs. Colin Feral, a kitten rescued from a feral cat colony, quickly proved to be the ideal candidate for the position.

Though most cats are afraid of canines, Colin is an adept at remaining calm.

“He’s a really excellent judge of character,” Steph Simon, a shelter employee, told The Dodo. “If we bring a dog in and the dog gives him too much negative attention, he will seek higher ground, such as a windowsill.”

Colin enjoys his profession since it allows him to meet new friends.

Colin was once introduced to a dachshund puppy. Colin and the dog began to play immediately after being greeted by someone his size.

“On the ground, they’d have tiny wrestling matches,” Simon explained.

While Colin was sad to see the dog leave the shelter, it’s all part of a day’s job for the cat.

Colin has rapidly become one of the shelter’s most popular employees, and he is continually taking on additional responsibilities. Colin is also an excellent paper weight, security guard, and emotional support animal, according to Simon. Colin appears to add a new talent to his resume on a daily basis.

Colin, like many of us, prefers working from home since it allows him to receive tons of affection from shelter workers and see many of his dog pals every day. He’s clearly mastered work-life balance.

And what is his name? You’ve probably guessed by now.

Simon said “Colin Feral.” “Of course, after Colin Farrell.”
