You cannot look at a sleeping cat and feel tense.
-Jane Pauley

This week’s spotlight is on 2 very sweet and affectionate indoor cats that are looking for their new best friend(s). Picture taking for this article was tough as both wanted nothing more than more human attention. Skipper is a Sliver Tabby/Shorthair mix with a very active and loud purr motor. He is probably less than 1 year old and weighs in at a perfect 9.8 pounds. Fiona is a beautiful Black & White girl with one black freckle on the left side of her face. She has enormous, green eyes with an adorable pink nose. She also is about 1 year old and weighs in at 7.1 pounds. Both have already tested negative for FeLV/FIV, have been wormed, will be current on all age-appropriate vaccinations, micro-chipped and have already been “fixed” or will be, prior to leaving the shelter. $5 will get you one of the best investments in your pet-a name tag. Please come visit these 2 cats and Olivia, Ziva, Zelda, Ying Yang, Princess, Doris, CeeCee and all of the other cats and dogs waiting for their deserving, forever homes. Check our website for your future pet at www.friendsofanimalsmc.org …the website is updated daily-make sure to check every day.

Two cats can live as cheaply as one, and their owner has twice as much fun.

This is a very busy time of year for everyone…please remember that your pets need your love and attention no matter how busy you are….possibly more at this time of year as you are more distracted and they don’t understand why your lap is unavailable or that you don’t have the energy to play ball with them. STOP…and give them your time as they deserve it, count on it…and need it…They are there for you…always.

Pet Food Recalls: Pet food recalls are occurring more often. To help keep you updated on current recalls you can just perform a search on the Internet by typing in FDA Pet Food Recalls-the correct site will usually be the first listed for the FDA website. The site includes dog/cat, horse, lamb/sheep and other animals.

Having a boring day? Come by the Shelter during business hours and play with a puppy….cuddle a cat….walk a dog…..rub a kitten belly ….. It's amazing how much better you (and the pet) will feel! FREE-UNLIMITED kitty purrs and puppy kisses available-every day. Volunteer and get your daily dose. Volunteers always welcome! Support the animals and support our shelter. It’s about them NOT us!

Featured needs this week are for laundry detergent, Dawn dishwashing liquid, paper towels, bleach, towels and blankets. Ongoing donations of these items are always needed as cleaning NEVER stops at the shelter. Visit the shelter at 170 Kefauver Lane in Madisonville Tuesday-Friday from 10-5 and Saturdays from 9-1. The shelter is closed to the public on Sundays and Mondays. Call 423-442-1015 for more information.

Please spay or neuter your own pets and help us keep our county's pet population under control.
