Cats In and Cats Out

We are up to 107 adoptions!  In the last month, we said goodbye and have a happy life to:  Tuck, Oscar, Sassafras, Sprinkles, Catrick Swayze (#100), Jewels, Kramer (see above), Maggie, Meowly Cyrus, and Lexus.

This week 4 new kitties arrived:  Solid black 4-mo kittens Skye and Diamond (formerly known as Jan and Marcia), Evette (a young gray and white mom cat), and a 3-mo orange kitten named Elsie.

SPOTLIGHT: Cat of the Month

Penny is a spunky but sweet girl who is looking for a special human. Her personality is part curmudgeon, part lap cat, 100% loyal. Her ideal human match is someone who understands life’s frustrations, has been through a lot, a bit grumpy perhaps (nothing wrong with that!), but underneath has a heart of gold. That is Penny too. She loves her naps, especially in a sunny window. And she is fun to watch, dancing around, when she finds a twist-tie or rubber band on the floor.

She’s on a specific diet because of tummy troubles, but it’s an easy one. And she loves the taste!  She is the most healthy she’s ever been. We will provide a month of her food to her adoptor. If you know someone (or a couple) looking to adopt a sweet cat who doesn’t ask much of her human, just to be petted and loved, please consider giving Penny a chance. She would prefer being an only cat. Penny has been waiting more than two years for a home. She’s the most deserving of all the cats at Lucky Cat.
