We all require a hero, and animals, mainly homeless animals, are no exception. Meet Shon Griffin, a 7-year-old boy who becomes a superhero to cats on the streets of Philadelphia. “people called this boy Catman,” his aunt Kris Papiernik told.
Papiernik and her boyfriend Kia Griffin, have been involved in rescuing cats and taking care of these poor animals for ten years. They had recently taken to looking after a local group of street cats; they are named the ‘Kolony Kats’
. A cat named Bug did not cooperate when getting shots and being neutered. However, everything changed after Shon arrived on the scene.
“We couldn’t get Bug to desex or anything because he would not come to us, and he would not come near the trap,” told Papiernik. “when Shon came and started feeding them, Bug came directly to him, and, ever since then, Bug has become a friendly cat.
” Papiernik had noticed that her friends had instantly formed a strong bond with the cats. The bug was the first cat whom Shon managed to attract. “The cats took him right away. The cat came right over to Shon, rubbed against his legs, and allowed him to pet him “It was the total opposite — they just gravitated to him,” Papiernik told.
“He scrapes their bellies and their heads. It was magic to see these cats who wouldn’t even allow us to touch them, but immediately took to him. The show must have a magical effect that the cats can pick up.”
Shon visits his aunt and the Cat Kolony regularly. Helps take care of the cats, and helps to solve any problems that might arise. He dresses up in his favorite superhero outfits when he is on a mission. The cats are drawn to him; even the unfriendly ones are unable to resist his attraction.
“ he likes to dress up,” said Papiernik. It makes him feel like a superhero for animals.
”Shon loves the cats so much that he doesn’t want to miss any chance to see them. “If it’s raining or he can’t go, he gets really upset,” Papiernik said. “He cries, it hurts him hard.”
