1-2-3: Homeless Supercat

Posted by siyerwin on Thursday, March 29, 2007 at 9:04 PM

Shelter life sure isn't easy. But 1-2-3, one of PARC's cat residents, has shown amazing resilience that I have not seen in any other cats at the shelter in the 1 or so year that I've been going there. He's a magnificent representative of the native Pinoy cat. I've never seen him having health problems, mild or otherwise, besides those occasional swat scratches that you'd expect in a multi-cat environment.

The bad news, though, is that he's the longest-staying cat at the shelter. Most of his contemporaries have either been adopted or have moved on to that place where cats and dogs are infinitely happier. It's painful to think of the possibility that he might live his entire life in a shelter. Please help PAWS find a home for this fella before it's too late.

1-2-3 is a male, 5 year old Pinoy cat with a coat of orange and white. He was abandoned by his previous owners around 3 years ago and he's perfect for anyone who knows cats well and has handled and cared for them in the past.

We have brought him with us at PAWS events a number of times for the PAWS adoption booth and I've seen him let perfect strangers rub his belly. 1-2-3 can be playfully cute around humans.

Please spend a little of your time to help spread the word about 1-2-3. Forward this post to your friends and kindly ask them to do the same. Home for 1-2-3 may just be a few clicks a way.

For more of your questions, please call up PARC at (02) 475-1688.

Thank you.

    If I didn't have seven cats I'd adopt the poor cute kitty. I hope he finds a home soon.

    If I can have them all, I will.

    I have 10 cats minus those that died and gave away. I'm really compassionate about them and I'd like to form an organization like PARC or CARA someday.

    sherwin, one thing you didn't mention - 1-2-3 has already been adopted once before but he was returned to PARC. if i remember right, it was because he was bullying the adoptive parent's other cat. He's also "king" of the PARC cattery - always giving, er, a "1-2-3" jab (that's how he got his name) to the other cats. We think 1-2-3 should be an only cat in his adoptive parent's household.

    i was wondering why no one wanted to adopt 1-2-3? he's so cute and i'm sure he's equally loveable... would PAWS allow the adopter to be from a different province? Cebu, perhaps? I am very interested in him. i will soon be opening my apartment to a few adopted cats from our office. Soon as i can find a new apartment of my own, i will definitely adopt more cats. Maybe he can join my little feline family. Will try to visit PAWS soon.

    We've had adopters from the provinces before. You'll just need to make sure of the safety of 1-2-3 during transit. Please call PARC at 4751688 to know more.

    Goodluck with your apartment. The cats you take in are lucky indeed! Give our warm regards to them.

    Thanks, micchu and hope to hear from you again!

    See you at the shelter!!!

    hi, i already have 4 cats and i want to have more.. actually i supposed to have 7 cats coz my 1 cat gave birth and she had 3 kittens but unfortunately they're gone. i dont know if some kid took them away coz they just disappeared and i couldnt fine them anymore.. i want to adopt more cats but im thinking if they will be friends with my cats here at home..

    Hi, anonymous. Were the kittens kept indoors when they disappeared?

    There will definitely be a period of adjustment for the cats you bring together for the first time. Some cats adjust better than others. Best thing for you is to drop by the shelter to see which ones you think will get along well with your current cats.

    I've been reading about PAWS and your efforts to help animals. I've started researching about different topics as well such as the dog meat trade. It really broke my heart.

    I'm only 17 years old. If only we didn't have too many pets at home na. I promise that when I start getting my own place and earn my own money I'm going to get my first pet from here :)

Please do not leave your email or contact numbers in the comments. Email me directly at sherwin @ if you have concerns or questions. This blog is increasingly attracting breeders/pet sellers trying to advertise their business through the comments and I don't want that. The blog seems to also be becoming a bulletin board of sorts for people who wish to abandon their pets. allows no way to edit your comments so there I have no other option but to delete comments that I deem inappropriate in this regard. I apologize for the inconvenience. Again, if you have any questions/concerns, better to email me at sherwin @ than to comment here. Thank you very much!
