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

Sadly my previous owner became homeless so I had to come to the shelter; we were all sad. I lived with other dogs, they are here too so I can get along with dogs but I have never lived with cats. I have always been nice to children but probably would do better with kids that are not toddlers. The good news is because I am seven years old, I am part of the Adopt a Senior Program which means the nice people here at the shelter will waive my adoption fee. Don’t you think my name is just perfect; everyone said I look like a teddy bear! I sure would like to be home for the holidays, see you soon; I will be waiting for you. I am looking for someone to teach me all about living with a family; I am told it is a wonderful experience. I was a new born kitten left in a crate along side the road near the shelter. So all I have known is being put in a crate and abandoned and now living in the shelter. I am three months old and growing up as a shelter cat but I want to grow up as your cat. I sure wish I could romp freely and play all day and then snuggle up with you for a nap. Please let me learn what family life is all about. I put my wish for a family on my Christmas list along with treats and catnip toys!
