VIDEO: Even Kitties Get The Blues

Snuggles came to the Marblehead Animal Shelter after his owner moved into a nursing home. The 3-year-old short-hair is on the mend after leaving his happy home.


Meet Snuggles at the Marblehead Animal Shelter. 

Snuggles is about 3 years old and has been at the shelter since the end of last month when his owner, who went into a nursing home, could no longer care for him. 

The pretty short-hair had a hard time adjusting to caged life among a crew of fellow homeless kitties.

Going from a stable happy home to a shelter is a shock to many cats and some of them get down in the dumps.

That means they tend to isolate and shy away from contact and do not have an appetite, says Marblehead Animal Control Officer Betsy Cruger.

Snuggles is slowly adjusting to his new surroundings and the good care he is getting but he wants a return to the good life.

When he's feeling right he is a lap cat who likes attention.

Meet Snuggles in our video and see photos of other cats at the shelter, too.

Last count there were more than dozen cats looking for a home at Friends of Marblehead's Abandoned Animals.

They have a saying there: Equal time for kitty cause I ain't no dog. Bow-wow-wow.
