As predicted those two kittens were snapped up in no time last week, and they went to a home together. Congratulations to the kittens and their new family.

Today we’re going to feature Jelly, who is ready to find her forever home. Jelly is a nine-year-young, female, tuxedo cat who still behaves like a kitten. She was surrendered to us with anxiety issues but she has now overcome her issues and is much more relaxed and confident. She is no longer hiding and is actively seeking out attention. And she’s quite the talker. She came from a multiple cat home but we feel she would prefer to be an only cat so she can have all the attention. Come meet her and fall in love, she’s quite the charmer.

Our other cats looking for homes are Summer, the rag doll mix, and Cloud, the gray male, a bonded pair that have special needs and need a special angel. And lastly, the two female Guinea pig sisters, Miss T and Bonnie, are also waiting to find their homes, either together or apart.

With temperatures on the rise please be mindful of pavement and vehicle temperatures and consider leaving your best friend at home. And remember to keep up with flea and tick treatments, as well as checking your pets and yourself. The ticks have been rampant this year.
