Every Life Matters

Featured Kitten

Hi, my name is Finnick and I’m looking for lasting love through adoption. You see, I spent the first 2.5 months of my life in a foster home, so I know exactly what it means to be loved and give love. I know what it means to cuddle and snuggle, to purr until my humans hearts have melted and how to play like the best of them! Through all of my experience with toys (and I have a LOT), I have to say that my favorite toy is the cat dancer. I love to play with anything I can bat in the air. I’m not one to brag, but I’m pretty fast and can usually catch it, too!

When I’m not playing or snuggling, I’m usually daydreaming about the day that a family will walk in, point at me and say, “he’s the one”! Oh, I just cannot wait for that day. I really hope it comes soon, too. All I ask of my new family is for them to love me and in return, I promise to do the same.

One thing is for sure…you will not go wrong with Moonie! There is no doubt about it, Moonie is the best of both worlds! She is quite a goof and is sure to bring smiles to the faces of everyone she meets. Whether she is playing with another cat, chasing a ball or just rolling around on her back, Moonie’s antics are sure to entertain! She is very curious and energetic, but also quite the snuggler. She is never bothered by being scooped up for a good cuddle and after awhile, her motor is sure to turn on. Moonie loves being carried around, doted on and pampered. Moonie is a gorgeous tortoiseshell with markings that can’t be beat. She has a dark coat with bright butterscotch markings poking through. Moonie would do well in a family with a docile cat, but don’t worry if you don’t have one…she’d love to be adopted with one of her friends at our adoption center!
