At 9:00 a.m. today, nine lucky pets set out with volunteer driver Sarah, on their way to meet their new families on the western side of the state.
AGUAFRIA is going to be a pampered indoor only-kitty with a terrific young couple.
POPPIE also gets to be an only-kitty (she says “yay”), and will be a great sidekick for her new mom, a lovely woman who is very cat-savvy!
SILVERLIGHT will be meeting his new “big sister” kitty, Boots – bet they will make a terrific pair.
MANDI gets to have a girl of her very own, plus dog and hamster buddies!
PETER will be in doggie nirvana when he meets the pack at his new home; he gets to go on trail rides with the horses, too.
KELSEA has two children to love her, and she . . . → Read More: Look who went home on 6-4-11
Poppie’s featured adoptable kitten for today is Melvin. We think he will probably be a short haired adult cat; he has the cutest markings! As a black and white kitten, he is statistically likely to be the last of the litter adopted, but whomever finally chooses Melvin is in for a fun, frisky time. Melvin and his siblings turned 5 weeks old on 4/26. You can see more photos, the latest video, and get adoption information on his full listing.
Here are some new photos of Poppie and the kittens, taken on 4-9-11:
