CHARLOTTE – Aslan is a laid back, people-loving “purring machine” and a special member of our Passionate Paws client family. We are excited to be able to share a bit of Aslan’s story with the help of his human mom, Amber.
It was almost 9 years ago to the day when Amber was volunteering with Carolina PAWS and caring for some cats at a local PetSmart. In a somewhat bizarre conversation and turn of events, she ended up taking in a kitten who had been brought in by someone. “I took the kitten and instantly the name Aslan – like the brave lion in Narnia – came to mind,” says Amber. The kitten had a torn lip from a dog, but luckily was in overall good health at about 4 weeks old.
Aslan is the “king of the house” and is known to carry his “binky” or special mouse around while talking very loudly. He has become an Instagram sensation over the past year, and is quite famous for his outfits, including a Hawaiian shirt and Starbucks apron. Aslan has a special Starbucks connection (his human dad!), and is also well known for his “Pawty Catbucks” that he serves up at his fur friends’ pawties on the weekends!
“I can’t imagine not having Aslan in my life,” says Amber. “He is a part of our family and loved by all.” We sure do love having Aslan as a part of our Passionate Paws family, too! 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, Teenie!
