Pongo


This striking cat was named after the charming Pongo from 101 Dalmatians and it's not hard to imagine why. If there was such a thing called a Dalmatian cat, Pongo would certainly fit the bill. Pongo has lived at the sanctuary all his life as he came to the shelter as one of six kittens.  I'm told his usual modus operandi is to only come out at night but fortunately for me, he decided to come out a little earlier at dusk to show himself off.

 
He seemed keen to attract attention to himself by rubbing against everything he could including my legs.  he was friendly enough and enjoyed a few scratches behind the ear but didn't let it go any further than that.
 
 
Still quite shy he kept his distance from me but seemed to like the action of the evening milling around with all the other cats in the front courtyard.
