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

I was found sitting along side the road. I could have been dumped there but I knew someone would find me if I sat where I could be seen. I have a nice bed here at the shelter but I am lonely. I enjoy the company of people, you will see I run to the front of my cage hoping people will notice me and talk to me. I can be friends with other pets but it is the love a person I am longing for. A kid of my own would be nice, I have went on a visit to the school and visited with a class full of kids and thought how nice it would be if I could go home with one of them. I am house trained and mannerly. I sure like it when people pet me; it is when I am the happiest. I have everything I need here at the shelter except for one thing and that is to be loved by a special person. Oh what a Happy Holiday it would be if I got to go “home” for Christmas. Burr, it was starting to get cold outside when I was found and brought to the shelter. I have been here since October and was hoping that I would have been found by my special person. But, I am still waiting and I am starting to think that nobody wants me. I am about a year old and know how to use the litter box so I won’t make any messes. I purr when I am happy but I have not had much to purr about lately. I hope that being Pet of the Week will be lucky for me. I think my person will see me and realize I have been waiting here all this time just for them. Hurry and come for me, we could have a great life together.
