Receive a special discount on the adoption fee by adopting a Pet of the Week!!!

I have been here at the shelter for five weeks now and I get more anxious everyday hoping for a family. I almost got adopted about two weeks ago and then the adoption fell through. I don't mind telling you I was absolutely crushed. To think your wish has finally come true only to find out the adoption fell through has made me sad. I have been trying to connect with someone hoping they would keep me. I was a stray and wandered about until I came upon a workshop. Some really nice guys worked there and let me hang around with them for awhile. I hoped one of them would take me home but they didn't they brought me to the shelter. It is okay here but none of the people that work here belong to me. The guys at the shop told the staff I am a friendly guy with other animals. I know somethings about house training but will need your help to teach me how it works at your house, I mean our house! I am three years old and already neutered. Please stop by so we can meet, I want to go home with you so I can be happy again. I was on my own trying to care for my babies when some nice people took us in until we could get to the shelter. My babies are old enough now and don't need me any longer so I am now in need of a home of my own. I would love to have a home with other cats or with kids, but no dogs please. Dogs are so noisy and messy. I can't imagine being stuck in the same house as one! I've been to the vet and have tested negative for feline leukemia. You should also know that I am litter trained so I am ready to move on in to your house. You just need to come to the shelter and get me. I'm only about one and a half years old so we can have many happy years together.
