Pets of the Week - Oct. 2, 2008

Lovey is a five and a half year old Tabby Domestic Shorthair. She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current. Lovey was abandoned at a mobile spay/neuter clinic; and lucky for her, a CCHS staff person happened to be volunteering at the clinic that day. When no one showed up at the end of the day to pick Miss Lovey up, she hitched a ride to the CCHS shelter, where she has been ever since. That was several years ago, and poor Lovey has never been adopted; as a matter of fact, no one ever looks at her or even asks about her. Unfortunately for Lovey, she is a very "common" looking cat in an area where cats are being given away on every corner. But anyone who takes the time to meet and visit with Lovey, will quickly find that she has tons of personality. She is so very sweet and affectionate, and she would like nothing more than to be someone's "lap kitty". Lovey can be a bit bossy with other cats, but she is slowly learning to play well with others....or at least, to simply leave others alone! Anyone interested in adopting a really sweet girl, and one who certainly deserves more than to live her entire life in a shelter, please call Robin at 770/478-7531.

Charlie is a one year old orange Tabby Domestic Shorthair. He has been neutered and all vaccinations are current. Charlie and his mom, Autumn (also available for adoption) were found living as strays. The weather was poor, and the two cats didn't seem to be in the best of health, and they were definitely underfed. These very special people took the cats into their home, provided them with veterinary attention, good food, and lots of loving care. Once the cats appeared healthy and ready to find a permanent home, CCHS was asked to help with them. Charlie was a bit frightened when he first entered the shelter, but he has come a long way, and is now a well-adjusted and friendly little man. Even though he's still a very young cat, he tends to have the demeanor of a quiet, mild mannered older cat. For more information about how to adopt Charlie, please call Robin at 770/478-7531.
