Aslan, one of our long-time feline patients at Passionate Paws.
CHARLOTTE – Aslan is a relaxed, people-loving “purring machine” and a special member of our Passionate Paws customer family. We are happy to be able to tell a little bit of Aslan’s story with the help of his human mother Amber.
It was nearly 9 years since Amber volunteered at Carolina PAWS and looked after some cats at a local PetSmart. In a somewhat bizarre conversation and turn of events, she finally picked up a kitten that had been brought in by someone. “I took the kitten and the name Aslan – like the brave lion in Narnia – immediately came to mind,” says Amber. The kitten had a torn lip from a dog but was fortunately in generally good health by around 4 weeks of age.
Aslan is the “king of the house” and is known for carrying his “binky” or special mouse around while speaking very loudly. He’s turned into an Instagram sensation over the past year and is pretty famous for his outfits, including a Hawaiian shirt and a Starbucks apron. Aslan has a special Starbucks connection (his human father!) And is also known for his “Pawty Catbucks”, which he serves on the paws of his furry friends on the weekends!
“I can’t imagine not having Aslan in my life,” says Amber. “He’s part of our family and everyone loves him.” We also love having Aslan as part of our Passionate Paws family, of course! You can follow Aslan on Instagram (@aslanthetuxedocat) or Facebook to learn more about his life. Stay tuned for another feature on Aslan’s fur sister, teen!
