Meet Freon. She is the shop cat and official mascot at Cool Car Auto Air in Columbus, Georgia. As you can see from the photo she also manages the cash register making sure the folks at Cool Car keep enough cash around for cheeseburgers.
Freon was born three years ago in an abandoned customer’s car in the rear of the lot. She was one of five kittens living in the back seat and the trunk. The mother abandoned the kittens so MACS member and animal lover Gus Swensen started feeding them at about
2-3 weeks old. The cats were feral and would run away when approached with the food but would eat when the humans went back to work.
This particular cat was more social than the rest of her siblings so when the food was all gone and her siblings went to sleep with full bellies she would very carefully venture to the shop door and look in. “Of course my guys would then give her additional food and from then on she became the shop cat,” Gus explains. “One of my customers actually named her Freon.”
