Rescuers from Crystal Lake, Illinois, have a new spokesman and the perfect endorsement for helping purrfect cats like Simba find a home. The young man created the “best video advertisement ever” for the rescue (see video below).
“If you want a cat, just go to Purrfect Cat Rescue,” he says convincingly.
Simba, the 3-year-old orange and white kitty, is adored and proudly sits on his cat tree, posing for the camera. The young man is also very proud of this kitty, reaching out to give him a pet. In response, Simba seems to smile!
“There he is,” the boy says as the camera pans to the happy kitty. “Say hi, cutie.”
He’s also very proud of the wonderful cat tree which Simba enjoys.
“If you want cat, just go to Purrfect Cat Rescue, and you can adopt it to rescue it. That’s what we did with Simba,” he explained. “You can adopt it to actually save it. If you see all of these cats and you don’t know which one you want because they’re all so cute, just go in my Instagram,” he says.
The rescuers clarified about the social media part.
“Simba is so loved. Side note… our new friend does not have an Instagram … he just thinks he does🧡🤍🧡🤍🧡🤍🧡,” the rescue explains.
Simba Was Adopted Days Before
The young rescuer’s mom says she is very proud of him and how much he loves cats and Simba.
“I am so proud of my boy he absolutely loves Simba and wants to make sure other kitties find their Furever Home!!” she shared.
While he doesn’t have an Instagram, there might be one for Simba someday, the happiest of foster cats.
“If this doesn’t make you wanna adopt a pet I don’t know what will Lol,” she said.
The family adopted Simba days before they made the cute video. The cat was the “friendliest, social kitty” who loved head-butting and nuzzling. In early April, the rescue shared a video of Simba and talked about how wonderful he was in every way. You can find many loving cuddly adult cats like this at a shelter or rescue near you.
Some cats and kittens will need some time to adjust and are often scared about being in a new place with so many new sights and sounds. But they do relax and bloom once they know they are safe and you are not going to hurt them. It just takes some time and patience. But in this case, Simba was so chill and happy from the start.
Here’s the day that the family adopted Simba.
“CONGRATS to Simba! Just look at this happy family!! Not sure if Simba loved the family more or the family loved him more… but either way there is lots of love here. Thank you for giving him the forever home he deserves!” Purrfect Cat Rescue Inc. shared.
Is This Cat Man Chris as a Kid?
As Jess noticed, this guy does a great job for the rescue, and he also reminded her of somebody: Cat Man Chris, when he was a kid. Here’s Cat Man Chris with his kitten named Sarah and Jess with a visiting kitten too! As you can see, they are lifelong cat lovers destined to meet each other as well as Cole, Marmalade, Bond, Maz, Jugg, Zig Zag, Calypso, and so many rescued Big Cats and kitties one day.
Who knows what this young rescuer from Illinois will be doing in the future, but we are pretty sure he will be helping animals for a lifetime, and possibly something in sales? In the meantime, he’ll have lots of love and companionship from Simba.
Purrfect Cat Rescue Inc. began soon after rescuing 40 cats from a hoarding situation in Northern Illinois in 2017. Cat Man Chris and the Cole and Marmalade team assisted and documented the challenging rescue.
