We’re happy to report that the tortoiseshell kittens have all gone to forever homes, and housemates Ginger and Blue have been adopted together. What a wonderful week it’s been.

This week our featured pet is Jelly. Jelly is a petite, nine-years-young, female tuxedo cat who is still very kittenish. She was surrendered to us with anxiety issues but she has now overcome her issues and is much more relaxed and confident. This girl is incredibly affectionate and is starved for attention to the point that she can get overstimulated so she needs a good deal of play time. She’s also quite the talker. We think Jelly would be happiest as an only cat so she can soak up all the attention. Come meet her, you might just fall in love.

We now have four female Guinea pigs in need of homes. Humpty and Dumpty are both Abyssinians. Humpty is black and white and Dumpty is gray and white. Like Bonnie and Miss T these girls are hand raised and very friendly. Why not bring some joy into the house with these fun pets?

And we still have some very loveable cats waiting for homes. Scout and Catticus and both orange and white males, and Jenny is their tortoiseshell housemate. However, it isn’t necessary for these cats to stay together.

With the current temperatures 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.
