Home. Some cats and dogs never have one to call their own. We want to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary homeless pet every week. Today, we’d like you to meet Chappy, a 6-month-old kitten being cared for by the L.A. Animal Rescue.

A few months ago, LAAR volunteer Su Roos was walking to her car at a south Los Angeles carport when something adorable stopped her in her tracks.

“A kitten popped his head out from a wall,” she remembers. “Turns out six were born there and were street kittens.”

Skilled at trapping felines on the run, Roos scooped up all six that day, and each was adopted in the next few months, except for unlucky Chappy.

Unfortunately, Chappy, named for entertainer Charlie Chaplin, always falls asleep at the most inopportune times. “He goes to the adoption events and he completely checks out – he’s always sleeping,” she says. “So no one gets to see his personality.”

Silly and playful when he’s awake, this goofy little fellow has transformed from a timid street kitten into a “clown” who loves being around other cats and dogs.

“He always does this really funny Risky Business thing where he slides right into the bedroom in my long hallway,” says Roos, who is currently fostering Chappy at her home.

If you’re looking to fill your house with lots of laughter, Chappy is ready and willing to make that happen. Learn more about him on Adopt-a-Pet.com or fill out an adoption application on LAAR’s website.
