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

Guess what, I was adopted but sadly, was returned to the shelter, it broke my heart. It turns out we just were not a good match because I need to be the only animal in the home. I am very motivated to be with people because I love them so and children too. I just can't live and socialize with other animals. I have what the shelter staff calls a Special Angel which means that angel has already paid my adoption fee so you won't have to. I am house trained and spayed too. I am a favorite of the staff because I am so lovable. I wish I could get along with other animals, because I can't I am afraid nobody will want me and that scares me. I love people so much and you won't find a more loyal companion. Please give me a chance, I am lonely and want a family. I have lots of love to share. Me and a bunch of my siblings were left alone until a nice person took care of us until we could come to the shelter. That was lucky for us because none of us had the first idea how to take care of ourselves. Well I am older now, six months old and I am very smart. I learned all about the litter box and how to get along with others and live with other cats. I have never lived with dogs. I really want a family and hope you may be a good match for me. I had a rough start in life but lately things have been going my way. I feel certain that something big is about to happen for me and that you will be part of it. Hurry to the shelter, I am waiting...just for you.
