ASPCA Pet of the Week: Cooking Good!
We’re pretty sure that Flounder the cat nurtures a secret ambition to be a chef. Margaret McLaughlin, ASPCA Director of Veterinary Technicians, fosters Flounder in her office and has observed his culinary skills up close. “He swipes several pieces of dry food, carries them to his water bowl, drops them in, and swirls the mixture with his paw,” McLaughlin explains. “We think he’s making soup.”
Like many top chefs, Flounder needs to be in control of his spacebut he can handle the heat! This six-year-old tuxedo cat loves physical, interactive play with people and will need a daily dose of exercise.
When it comes to other animals, Flounder is opposed to too many cooks in the kitchen, and would do best as the only pet in the household. But he does seek a loving human assistant to provide him the ingredients for his gourmet concoctions. If this is your dream job, call (212) 876-7700, ext. 4120, to meet Flounder. To see other animals who are waiting for homes, please visit the ASPCA Adoption Center online.
