Shon Griffin is a 5-year-old “Superhero” from Philadelphia. “We call him Catman,” his aunt Kris Papiernik said.
Shon’s aunt and her fiancée have been involved in cat rescues and fostering for many years. They recently began a local group they named the “Kolony Kats.” Bug, the cat, would just not cooperate when it came to getting shots and being neutered. “Nothing we tried worked,” Aunty Kris said. However, she noticed that her nephew Shon had formed an instant bond with the cats, so he began to help out. “The cats took to him right away. Bug came right over to Shon, rubbed against his legs and allowed him to pet him.”
From that day on, Shon was known as “Catman.” He regularly visits Kat Kolony, dressed in his favorite superhero outfit, feeding and petting the cats and helping solve any problems that might arise. Even the most unfriendly cats are drawn to him. “He would scratch their bellies and scratch their heads. It was amazing to see these cats who would not even allow us to touch them but immediately took to him. He must have this magical effect that the cats can pick up,” Aunty Kris said.
