This is 5 year old Shon Griffin from Philadelphia. “We call him Catman,” says his aunt Kris Papiernik
Aunty Kris and her fiancée had recently taken to looking after a local group of street cats which they named the ‘Kolony Kats’
One cat, Bug, would just not cooperate until Catman arrived on the scene. “Bug came right over to Shon, rubbed against his legs and allowed him to pet him”
From that day on, Shon was Catman. He regularly visits, dressed in his favourite superhero outfit, feeding the cats and helping solve any problems
The cats are drawn to him, even the most unfriendly ones are unable to resist his charms
“He must have this magical effect that the cats can pick up”
So cats, if you find yourself alone on the streets of Philly, cold, hungry and on heat with bugs in your fur, who ya gonna call? That’s right, Catman!
