Dear Lucky Cat Supporters, Visitors & Adopters

As of today, we have found homes for 146 cats and kittens. It’s a great feeling for us when we say Goodbye to another kitten or cat, leaving with a smiling individual, couple or family.

Spotlight on Penny

February 12 marks one year since Penny came to us from Shamrock Foundation to be adopted. She  has been us longer than any other cat, waiting for someone to love and appreciate her. If she wrote her own personal ad, here’s what it would say:

“I am Penny, not for the faint of heart. MY LIKES: a window to see out, a sunny spot on the floor, food on demand, and access to your kitchen table. MY DISLIKES: the word NO, being picked up, dogs No Way, and having my nails trimmed. I’m a single B&W girl, often grumpy aka misunderstood, and ready to live life as I please with a sometimes-grumpy human who lives life as he/she pleases. If I meet the right human, he or she will be rewarded with loud purrs and biscuits and a nap in your lap.

I heard that my ADOPTION FEE IS WAIVED. PS – I come with a bonus: a 2-mo supply of my favorite food, Green Pea and Duck. YUM!

If you know someone who might be purr-fect for Penny, please share this message.
