A little bitty psa. . .

We recently adopted this beautiful, SWEET three year old kitty from the animal shelter. He is amazing. So loving and sweet. Someone must have really loved him before he ended up in the shelter b/c he loves to snuggle and is just super sweet and mellow. We are so very happy to have him with us! And I hope that someone didn't lose him and misses him.

So, the psa part-when I was at the shelter filling out the paperwork the lady at the desk said they had over SEVENTY cats/kittens right now. That's A LOT of cats. And that's just one shelter. I think there are four shelters in this town! While I was standing there a gentleman brought in seven more kittens. Wow. If you have ever thought about adopting a cat, do it now! There are some amazing, wonderful companions in these shelters, just waiting to come home!

And please, please if you have pets-indoor or outdoor-please spay or neuter them. If you can't afford it there are programs through the shelters to help, and many vets will help if you just let them know your situation. There are just way too many homeless animals out there!

Here's our new fur friend, isn't he cute?!
