Every Life Matters

Featured Kitten

Hi, my name is Juno. They tell me my birthday is 4/20/17. I’m not really sure what that means, but my humans keep telling me I’m getting to be such a big boy! I’m writing this letter, because I really want a home of my own. You see, I’ve always been alone. I was alone when the first shelter ladies found me and always felt alone when the other cats kept getting picked over me. I have lots of friends, but I want a family. And if you adopt me, I promise to be a good boy! I promise to stay busy by running as fast as I can across the room. I promise to entertain by flying high in the air and chasing after toys. And I promise to fill your heart with my snuggles and motor. All I ask for in return is that you promise the same. I want a family that will not only watch me run, but love it when I do. A family that’ll not only watch me play, but play with me. And a family that won’t just love my snuggles, but will cuddle with me and shower me with attention. Now I’ve made my promise and if you can make yours, let’s chat! Maybe you could be my new family?!

No one likes to be proved wrong, but we are, once again! Just when we thought we had met perfection, little Humphrey came into our lives. To be honest, Humphrey doesn’t even need a story; he can be summed up in one word: doll. He is unbelievably sweet, affectionate and playful. He adores playing with other kittens, but his favorite pastime is being spoiled by his humans. Humphrey’s estimated birthday is 5/3/17, making him just about 3.5 months. Humphrey would do well in a home with other animals, kids or all of the above!
