Striking black cat found underweight, dehydrated in Utah needs a new home

A stunning black cat named Dusk is looking to be taken in by a caring family.

The five-year-old kitty is currently available for adoption at Best Friends Lifesaving Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Dusk was originally rescued from West Valley City Animal Service in September 2017.

He was underweight and dehydrated — and had eye discharge when Best Friends took him in, according to the shelter.

Today, Dusk is described as a “sweet, spunky boy” who loves to have his head scratched.

Dusk can be nervous around people he doesn’t know — but tends to warm up and make new friends quickly, Best Friends of Salt Lake City said.

He also prefers to be the only cat in the household.

“Take him home if you’re in need of a wonderfully loyal companion!” Best Friends told Fox News Digital.

November marks National Adopt-A-Senior-Pet Month — and Best Friends Animal Society CEO Julie Castle shared in a press release some of the reasons taking home a senior pet is a great option for people.

“Whether you’re looking for an active senior to go on walks with or a couch potato to help keep you company, there are plenty of older dogs and cats who would love to be your new best friend,” she said.

She said these animals “tend to fit right into their surroundings like they’ve been with you forever.” 

Senior pets are the most at-risk animals in shelters, despite being “tried and true companions” in need of a second chance, said Castle.
