...go back outside and be a wild cat. Then, in the morning he would be waiting for us to let him in.”

 

Pretty soon, Anderson was a big favorite with the crew, customers and visitors. He wasn’t afraid to say hello to everyone coming through the door, regardless of whether they owned a Hyundai or a Tesla. When people came back to pick up their vehicles, they began asking about Anderson, who was more than happy to share a few meows along the way.

 

By now, Anderson was officially the shop mascot after a brief ceremony in which ceremonial milk was spilled. Once he knew he was in charge, Anderson changed his sleeping schedule in order to perform his daily security checks and make certain all repairs were being performed using only OEM parts and procedures.

 

One morning, Blackmun and some of the crew noticed Anderson was in bad shape. He had been attacked by something, likely a stray dog or a raccoon. His front left leg was broken in several places and things didn’t look good for him.

 

But the people at Anderson Behel stepped up and got him some excellent help, in order to be return him back to his pre-accident condition. At that point, everyone at the shop agreed that Anderson should transition from being a body shop mascot to a house cat.

 

Today, Anderson lives with Blackmun and the rest of his family in beautiful Felton, CA, with his menagerie of other cats, dogs and assorted animals.

 

“He’s the coolest cat you could ever meet,” Blackmun said. “He is spending his senior years in the sun and thinking of taking some I-CAT classes to stay busy.”

 

If you have a body shop mascot, send me a note at era39@aol.com and maybe we can help your dog or cat to get its 15 minutes of fame. We’re especially looking out for felines who are aluminum trained or dogs who will work for kibble.
